This can be an incredibly hard step to take, but in today’s post it’s a step I shall be taking.
I’m admitting to the world that I have a Coke addiction.
Now, before you drop whatever it is that you’re holding, I would like to point out that it’s not that kind of Coke addiction.
It’s a Coca-Cola addiction.
It would seem that I can’t go a day without drinking over a litre of the stuff – and yes, I do already know how bad that is.
If I’m on the early shift at work, when my alarm goes off at 5am or 6am, whereas most people would make themselves a cup of tea or coffee to kickstart their can, I have no shame in cracking open a 330ml can of Coke.
I’ll then crack another one open on my break at work – unless I still have some of my 1.75l bottle, which I leave in the staff fridge, left. If I don’t have that Coke fix during my break, just ask everyone at work what sort of monster I turn into.
With Christmas having only recently passed, I guess everyone else could already tell how much of the stuff I drink; almost three quarters of the Christmas presents I received were Coke related. Including a cute cardboard Coca-Cola Christmas truck, containing a bottle.
I can safely say that it’s not a caffeine addiction though, otherwise I’d be drinking copious amounts of tea and coffee and I wouldn’t have Coke bottle openers, t-shirts, cardboard trucks and ice buckets.
For Lent last year I attempted to give up takeaways and it’s fairly obvious what I should give up this year as I’m already consigned to losing all of my teeth by the time I’m 30!
Hell, I drank two 330ml bottle just writing this post!
Later this month I’ll be posting 10 signs that prove you’re addicted to Coke in a separate post.
