Six Weeks of Hell

Although I was brought up a Catholic I am no longer a practising Catholic. However, some things stick with you and I always feel that during Lent I should give something up. Something that will test my willpower, that will be an achievement if I manage it.

So yesterday I decided that this year I would give up Diet Coke for Lent. After clearing the Diet Coke from my fridge ….. this is what was left.

Wish me luck.

Something missing from the middle shelf.

      Well, at least you kept the really important beverage - the champagne! Good luck on giving up diet coke, personally, I would never do that for the sake of all the people around me who'd suffer the most..... ;)

      Looks like you've still got the champagne to keep you going! A friend has given up 'snacking' for Lent which I thought was an original idea.

      As a former Diet Coke Addict, I can tell you the way I gave it up was to visualize the distorted face of the Ukranian President, Yuschchenko, after the poisoning attempt on his life some years back. I heard they used Diet Coke to administer the poison to him. I just have not been able to drink another drop of the stuff ever since.
