Yes I Drink Diet Coke

I have heard many people make snide comments and remarks about those who drink diet pop with anything other then a salad. This is where some people can not seem to grasp the concept that maybe, just possibly those people who drink diet pop are not trying to lose weight. That they may actually be diabetic or . . . now stay with me here . . . or they may actually like the taste of diet pop. Shocker, I know. But it is possible. 99% of the time I drink only diet coke. And I am not trying to lose weight. I actually like it. It’s the only beverage that seems to quench my thirst, not even water can seem to do that.

But my love for diet coke hasn’t always been there. I use to despise it, along with any other diet pop but that was all my Mom would drink. After my Mom and I moved in with my Nan (grandma) my Mom would buy diet coke and only diet coke no matter how much I pleaded for her to purchase some type of beverage that I liked but it went in one ear and out the other. She told me I had a choice of diet coke or water. This was during a period in my Mom’s life were she was a complete and utter bitch and wanted nothing to do with me. This was caused by the divorce she went through with my Dad and alcohol. Once she got over both she become the mom I once knew. Anywho, after getting tired of water I caved and started drinking diet coke and got hooked. Now any other pop taste too damn sweet to me.

So those who like to snicker go right ahead. I will continue to eat my double bacon cheeseburger with a side of fries covered in melted cheese and a cold glass of diet coke while I enjoy my life instead of being so concerned about what other people are drinking with their meals.

    You tell ’em, girl! 😛

    But seriously, I totally get what you mean. Not everyone that drinks diet soda is trying to lose weight…some people just like the taste!

    Personally, I’m a classic coke girl…my mom always kept classic coke in the house when I was growing up, so naturally, it’s still one of my favorite beverages. And I’ve got news for the people that make snide comments about it…even drinking diet soda isn’t a good way to lose weight, no matter WHAT you happen to be eating – be it a double bacon cheeseburger *mmmmm…I’m drooling here* or a piece of lettuce and a crouton. Soda is still soda, full of carbonation, caffeine, and sugar, no matter how they dress up the outside of it. 🙂

    LOL I kinda went off the handle there for a second. Haha, sorry about that. Anyways, my point is, keep on drinking your diet coke! 😛

    My husband used to laugh whenever I’d order diet coke with a burger..until I informed him that a large regular coke can have more than 300 calories. I don’t really want to drink that many calories with a meal.
    My personal fave drink right now is Cherry Coke Zero. 😀

    all I have to say is I hear you sister. ^_^

    My boyfriend always laughs when I get a diet coke with a cheeseburger. ;P Its just the taste I grew up with, but diet coke has lost its zing. I like Coke Zero just as much right now. ^_^

    anyway, good luck with getting people to see it that way. ;P
