Coke (Zero) Addict

Hi, my name is Jen and I'm a Coke Zeroaholic! Okay, I've admitted it. I'm addicted to Coke Zero!

We ran out of my addiction Saturday and I had to go until Sunday night before I got my fix again. Jake ran to the shopette and got a 2 liter, but that didn't make it through Monday. I had grand plans of going to the commissary yesterday after I picked the boys up from the CDC, but Bailey was not in the mood so we came straight home. To try to keep my mind off of my need for a nice cold can of Coke Zero, I ate and ate and ate - mostly crackers and cheese - so of course I was just getting more and more thirsty! Rasberry Crystal Light just wasn't doing it for me.

When Jake got home from work, I admitted to him that I was in need of my addiction so I had to go to the shopette and get a 12 pack! I can't tell you how good it felt to pop open that lukewarm black can!

I've not always had this addiction. When I worked full time and before Jake joined the Army - I'm not blaming him - I would usually just drink one at work and drink tea or Crystal Light or something at home. For some reason, when he left last year to go through all his training, I got lazy and quit making tea for myself and just started drinking lots of diet sodas. Since our family has been all back together for almost a year now, I've continued drinking my diet sodas and of course the preferred drink is Coke Zero, to the tune of 4 or 5 a day or more on a good day! I think I get so used to having one open waiting for me that when we're out, I don't know what to do!

I know - I have issues!!!

Greg will be so proud! The new Fort Mill Chic-Fila has coke zero which really excited me. I don't like regular diet drinks but don't want the sugar of the other stuff. It's the little things in life...

Oh my goodness! I've found another "Zeroaholic"!! I didn't know, and how long have we known each other? I love them and Kevin thinks I'm disgusting for loving them :) He's hardcore Diet Dr. Pepper. I don't have any Zero's right now, and I'm just not drinking anything!

I have never had a Coke Zero before, but I am a Diet Cokeaholic! I drink about as much Diet Coke a day as you drink Coke Zero. Maybe I'll have Bruce bring a 12 pack of it home from work and try it. Miss you guys!

You are not the only one addicted to a certain soda- we have a 2 liter of orange soda on our kitchen counter for you-know-who! :)

My personal favorite is diet orange sunkist!! I go to WalMart and head straight for the cooler at the front of the store so I can drink it while I'm shopping. But I've gotten used to drinking nothing but water in the truck when we travel (soda goes flat too fast).
