I've mentioned in the past that I may have what some would refer to as "drinking problem." Diet Coke and I have been in cahoots for quite some time, and even though I don't necessarily see it as a problem, many people do. That, my friends, is not denial - it's the belief that I am right and you are dead wrong....Rob. So, in effort to experiment with a coke-free life, I decided to do what I have heard so many people recommend in the past. A glass of sparkling water flavored with lemon and lime.
Now, here's my question: who in their right mind thought this was some sort of substitute for the sweet, rich, goodness of a diet coke?! This stuff is HANDS DOWN TERRIBLE! I cringed with every sip, until I had the fantastic idea of adding a huge portion of Splenda. At that point it became tolerable, but not good by any measure. Then I realized that adding Splenda really just turned it into the same thing I was already drinking: a carbonated drink made with fake sugars...with NO caffeine. Pointless.
So, no thank you SELF magazine...Diet Coke and I are just fine as we are.
