I am addicted to diet coke, or diet pepsi, doesn't really matter as long as it is ice cold, and from a soda fountain. I don't care for it much in the bottle or the can, I will drink it, however, it is the icey cold, bubbly, straight from the soda fountain, good stuff that I prefer. 3 blocks from my house is my diet coke, "go to" spot. The girls in there all know me, and laugh when I come in with my procession of children, wild, noisy, and usually dirty from a trip to the park, or a romp in the garden. Or when I come in at the end of a very long day, and march over to that soda machine and the with my big cup in hand, walk over to the counter and say " you don't know what a day I have had, I need my diet coke" They particularly find it funny when I come in more than twice on the same day, which.... sometimes I do. Sooo, I decided to collect my cups for a week to see just how bad my diet soda addiction is... well as you can see by the picture... it is not good.
In one week I consumed 1624 ounces of ice cold diet coke, possibly more if you consider the refills.
1624 ounces, that is more than 13 gallons of diet soda. Dear me, what am I going to do? I find myself really needing my ice cold lifesaver to get me through my day, and one to gulp down as I rock in my rocking chair at night, recovering from a wild day with toddlers. This habit.... cannot be good.
