This is our story of immigration struggles and moving to Mexico so our family can be together. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy!

Hello. My name is Rebecca and I am an addict.

I know i have a problem. I have never been in denial. I just did not realize how bad it was until i started waking up in the middle of the night thinking about it. After sitting in bed tossing and turning i finally get up. Walk out to the kitchen, open the fridge and pop open a nice cold can of Diet Pepsi.  Yes that is right, i drink it in the middle of the night. I average about 5 cans and one bottle a day of the stuff. It is nuts.I know i have a problem. I know it is bad for me. I have heard all the horror stories about cancer and weight gain and what not. I don't know if is is i just dont care or i just cant stop.

I drink water too. About 5 bottles a day at work. (yes i go to the bathroom alot) I ma just a thirsty person (i have been tested for diabetes) I know it is an issue. Anyways i am not commiting to stopping. I am not commiting to cutting down. What i will say is i am gonna try and drink less. I spend crazy amount of money on soda and it really needs to end. For my health and my pocketbook. It is 11am here and i have only had one bottle and one can today. That is a big improvement. ...let's see how the rest of the day goes.

I was able to control the coffee addiction into something more manageable (about 2-3 cups a week from 2-3 per day)...and I stick to decaf b/c for health reasons. You can do it if you are committed! :-)

Oh my that is A LOT of soda. Since you said you know them I wont go into the health stuff. For sure the pocket book would be a good reason to cut back. Good luck with it. ;)

I've cut back too. 2 things that are helping me are:
1. Pour it in a cup with ice. You drink less actual soda that way, but don't really miss it, and
2. Only keep 2L bottles in the house. No "single-serving" 12-oz. cans or 20-oz. bottles, which are really 1.5 or 2.5 "servings" each.

Good luck. ♥
