I seriously LOVE Diet Dr. Pepper. In fact, it's almost more of an obsession than just a generic "love". I didn't even know Diet Dr. Pepper existed a year ago, but when I discovered it, I was instantly hooked! It's like drinking dessert. It's like this yummy "deliciousness in a can (or 20 oz bottle, or cup with extra ice)" that at times I have craved more than food. I'm pretty sure I could live on it if I had to. Scary, huh?
About a month ago, I realized that my obsession with this specific "non food" was starting to control my life. Everyday at 3:00pm I would start to pace around like a caged animal until I could stop at Sonic (during Happy Hour, of course) and get my "fix". I don't really like that out of control feeling. I like to think that I'm strong, determined, in control of my thoughts and actions. But with a couple of things in my life, I've come to realize that I'm very definitely NOT in control. So I made the drastic and heartbreaking decision to give up my drug of choice. I've slipped a couple of times (because really, who can just quit a thing "cold turkey" and not expect to fall off the wagon?), but for the better part of a month, I've been Diet Dr. Pepper free.
But I still totally miss it...so today, I thought I'd dedicate a tribute post to Diet Dr. Pepper which falls into that category of Stuff I LOVE but can't overindulge in. (insert moment of silence here...)
