P is for...Pepsi-holics Anonymous

Um. Hello.

My name is Rae and I'm a Pepsi-holic.

I can't remember a time when I wasn't all about Pepsi. It seems as if I've always been addicted. But if I had to choose a time my addiction worsened, I'd say in adulthood.

It started out with just a can here or there. 

Then I upgraded to 20oz bottles.

Then I discovered one liters.

I got to the point where I had to have a Pepsi everyday. I couldn't function without the burn of the yummylicious carbonated drink. I've discovered that, instead of being an emotional eater, I'm an emotional drinker (of Pepsi...not alcohol). Stressed? Drink Pepsi. Had a bad day? Pepsi makes it all better. Celebrating? Have a can of Pepsi.

I thought moving to another country would help me. Perhaps the UAE would be more into Coke, a drink I can't really stand. I was so wrong. They're into Pepsi. In fact, there's a Pepsi factory two minutes away. TWO MINUTES.

I know Pepsi is bad for me, but it's soooooo good! All other pops - or sodas, as some of you say - pale in comparison.

In my defense, though, Pepsi-holism runs in the family. My great great grandmother, great grandmother, grandmother, and mother were and are Pepsi drinkers. See? It's hereditary. So, really it's not my fault. I was doomed from the start.

So, is there a cure? Will I ever get over my addiction? I sure hope so. I've actually gotten better. I don't drink it as much as I used to. Of course, this tall, glass of Pepsi I have in my hand right now may say differently. But it's the thought that counts, right?

Hi Rae. Hate the stuff, but we all have our addictions. Mine is coffee. Must have it.


Angela Brown said..., I sometimes refer to "crack" at my blog. This is not that stuff purchased from Pookie off the street. This is a dark, liquid, yummy addiction I yo-yo back and forth with.

Wild Cherry Pepsi.

I admit it. I'm addicted.

Thanks for commenting! I'm not crazy about Coke & I don't drink coffee (tho coffee smells so good sometimes).

My dad is all about Mountain Dew, Stephanie.

Angela, that's my brother's addiction. Lol.

Aw, you're so cute! I don't like soft drinks, but if I had to choose, it would be sprite. I love juice!
