my deal with myself

Diet Coke, I love the stuff.
I have TRIED and TRIED and TRIED to kick it and cannot.
There is a contest going on right now that you can enter a pin and get a chance at winnig $25000.
Would we not all just LOVE to win it.
As I was having a conversation with my self( I tend to do that every now and again) I was trying to convince myself to give it up once and for all.
Then I was thinking about winning the contest.
$25000, that would be nice!
And, without realizing I said it, to myself of course, I said,
"If I win the $25000 contest, I will give up Diet Coke."
I looked around to be sure no one else was saying it.
I shocked myself!
Yup, it was me who said it.
I know, my chances in winning are slim to nil.
I have a total of 3 entries to the how many of millions of entries.
AND, it depends on how many gold Canada wins.
Yup, you see my chances.
Then, I was actually brave enough to say it to the Mr.
He was shocked.
Can't say I blame him, I am too.
I did say though that if I did win and had to drink a Diet Coke for promo reasons, I would.
Then, that would be it.
I know, now that I said it aloud I cannot go back.
I have tried so many things.
The last attempt was when Jason went away for the summer.
I decided to give it up the day he left.
That was bad for so many reasons.
So, there you have it.
That is my deal with myself.

I feel for you. I had the same LOVE for Pepsi. When I got pregnant with K I decided to be the healthiest I could and quit while he was in there and nursing. Now I can not drink one without feeling sick. :) What a huge blessing! I hope that you can "kick" the habit even if you don't win, but hey, here's hoping for you! (I am hoping for a DisneyWorld contest I entered...my chances are slim to none...kind of like yours!)
