Ok. so for those of you on my Facebook, you might remember this status update I had on August 11th.
For those of you not on Facebook, this was my status update.
"I went on holidays in camrose AB and they had a vanilla shot for diet coke. I was dismayed when I went to the Medicine Hat location and they have one. I was told the machine would have to break in order to get one. I am writing you this so instead of someone having a breakdown over not having a vanilla shot with their diet coke and breaking the machine, you can rectify the problem and just get one there. Lemme know when you do cause I will be the first in line. Until then, I am NOT going there."
This is a complaint that I lodged with 7/11
I know it may SEEM like I was joking but really, I was not, just trying to make a point with a little humor.
I am someone who USED to laugh and joke a lot, and then stopped but had become determined to joke more, so I felt I should use humor in my complaint.
Lots of the comments were quite funny, but also brought up the fact that I might, just MIGHT be addicted!
SO, I did a LOT of evaluation.
To say I LOVE diet coke, well, that is putting it mildly.
I would drink more Diet Coke than water, yep, got my 8 glasses of DC and MAYBE a few of H20.
Not Always 8 glasses but WAY too much Diet Coke.
Yes, I tried to give it up before.
And by tried, I mean I went a while without it, then gave in.
This time, I was DETERMINED.
And, I had SUPPORT!
I had someone who was willing to make a sacrifice as well, and that really meant so much to me.
So, I did it.
Oh, the next few days were HELL, to say the least.
I felt if I bashed my head up against the wall it would feel better.
But I didn't.
I have learned I can ACTUALLY SURVIVE without the "love" of my life.
My Diet Coke.
I sleep SOOOOOOO much better.
I don't feel BLOATED.
I might have lost a few pounds.
I just FEEL better.
SO, no going back.
I am an "all in" type of girl, do it all the way or not at all.
I thought I would really miss it, but I don't.
I think that is what surprised me the most.
