whenever i’ve tried to give up carbonation its only lasted maybe an hour.

i try to be a good person. i really do. 

i’ve stopped letting the water run while i’m brushing my teeth and i’ve made a diligent effort to refrain from using plastic bags. i’ve ignored all the silly rumors circulating the rumor mill about my life and have never retaliated to the sorry girl.  i’ve been moisturizing more often and eating my vegetables too. i’ve even made a bigger effort to call or text people back and have been faithfully taking my vitamins. 

these are the little things that make me feel like i’m making progress in life. 

so i guess i should be embarrassed to admit that i just finished an entire 2 liter bottle of diet coke all by myself (in case you’re confused, that’s the BIG bottle people). and the worst part of it was that it was a total lips-to-bottle kind of afternoon. no pour-it-into-a-glass-first action going on over here. none whatsoever.  
i hope josh doesn’t read this.  
and if he does, i forgive you for all the times you drank the OJ/ milk /soda straight from the carton. and i promise i won’t be on your case about it anymore, love.

    Way to go Naomi! I am so proud. Every time I try and quit diet coke it never works, it is one of my ture loves.

    That’s my girl. ;)

  3. Oh no Naomi! Are you being serious?! This worries me… considerably. I don’t care if you swigged the whole thing down without a glass, but Naomi! A whole 2 liter bottle of soda?! This is bad. Next time you’re ready to give in to caffeine and diet-anything, you call me first. We can talk about it… we can plan. I can hype up water like no other human being on this planet. Just wait.

  4. janalyn, it’s not that easy and you know me.

  5. um…… i gave it up for 4 whopping months.

    then….

    i rehooked the IV and have been chugging ever since.

    i’m embarrassed when i get the super SUPER big gulp at the sev. there’s one by my apt.

    i am, indeed, white trash.

    call me. screw tea, let’s go for a DC.

  6. Atleast you’ve never given into DR PEPPER.

    You are still OK in book.

    xo

  7. I Love the stuff. It’s poison, but I love it too. I am philosophically committed to quitting it though. That’s step one in repentance, right?

    WORD.

    can we help that it’s delicious? i gave up (quit) trying to quit. it was damaging my self esteem. my addiction is strictly to cans (home) and i’ll settle for it out of a fountain.
    i love the Coke sparkle commercial too. you embody that:)

  10. haha- i’m with you girl!! I have a serious obsession with diet coke and I’ve come to the conclusion that I really can’t kick nor do I want it out of my life. It will be my vice forever and I’m ok with that. I think Josh will love you all the same- even with drinking it “Straight Up”. =)

    This is making me laugh hysterically because I can’t picture anyone but you swigging this down so nonchalantly. Totally seeing this, and it’s killing me!
    Wow, I love you girl.
