Perhaps we’ve been dealing with the lesser evil here. Splenda? Is this truly an addiction? No, it’s more like abuse. True addiction is when you physically and mentally feel like you can’t live without something.
I give you: COFFEE.
Let me begin by saying this is by no means a new discovery of mine. I started drinking coffee regularly in college and told myself “I won’t have a cup everyday; I don’t want to be one of those people who needs the stuff”. Well dude, good job, you’re officially a caffeine junky.
This morning I got a small Greg’s (the epic place I visit every morning), used 2 packets of Sugar in the Raw, and thought, “another small victory for mel!” Day 6, no splenda, and 2 packets of sugar in raw tasted really good in the coffee. This is more sweetener than I’ve used all week- so far sticking to 1 packet of regular processed sugar.
But, as I sit here, all I can think about is getting another small cup of company coffee because a little more of a kick in the butt right now would be great to start my day. And as soon as I’m finished with this post, I’m getting some. So total, this would be 24 oz of coffee this morning.
Which is more evil? The coffee or the splenda? I sense a battle coming on.
