Addict

Hello, my name is Mary and I’m an addict. It has been 34 days since my last drink (I had to go count the days on my calendar to figure that out… I have not been keeping track 😉).

No, I’m not talking about alcohol (I do enjoy a rum and diet coke or a glass of wine occasionally) my addiction is Starbucks. A grande 8 pump chai, 2 pumps sugar free cinnamon dolce, nonfat, no water, no foam, extra hot chai tea latte to be exact. (I know… High maintenance) I suggested to Tony that I might give it up until our trip to Disneyland next summer (for some reason I didn’t realize that was over a year away!😕) and he said, “you can’t do it.” (Challenge accepted!!!)

I have to prove him wrong! So far so good! It’s been over a month since I enjoyed a nice hot, spicy, sweet chai. It hasn’t been easy and it has affected my life. I used to bribe myself on the mornings I really didn’t want to get out if bed with a stop at Starbucks on my way to work. This “carrot” would often get me up early enough to go to Starbucks and get to work a little early. And now I have nothing to bribe myself with in the morning to get out of bed and to work on time.
And every holiday I have to respond to Tonys,”do you want a free pass to go to Starbucks today? Since its-insert holiday name here-” with a firm no! I know he’ll just say that he knew I couldn’t do it if I cave, and I AM going to do this! So here’s to a year from now when I can once enjoy my high maintenance chai! (And prove Tony wrong!)
