I have a very serious diet soda addiction.
It is to the point where I keep a 2 liter bottle on the night stand at night. I will seek out diet soda even when I’m not thirsty. My boyfriend knows that the way to win my affection is a bottle of diet coke on Valentines.
I grew up in an unhealthy diabetic household. All I drank growing up was diet coke, and I feel like I am now, at the age of twenty, hard-wired for drinking the stuff.
I don’t even enjoy the taste to be perfectly honest. I don’t understand why I continue to consume it in such great quantities.
I have tried countless times to quit, but every time I feel like I go through withdraws, to the point that I am shaking, with throbbing headaches, and every other thought revolves around getting a diet coke.
I dunno, I feel like something is wrong with me. How to can quit once and for all? Where do I get the willpower?
I poured all the diet down the drain. I have a stock pile of tea ready to go too.
