Hi, My name is Allison and I am addicted to.....

…to Coca-Cola. Of course not full calorie Coke, because the days of drinking my calories are long over, but specifically Diet Coke and Coke Zero. I have Robin D’Anza, a college roommate and bridesmaid of mine, to thank for my recent addiction to Coke Zero. She left a 2 liter bottle at my house last fall, and needless to say, the rest is history. Lucky for our fridge, Tim is not much of a soda drinker. He is however addicted (my diagnosis, not his) to his morning cereal and coffee. Sorry to throw you under the breakfast bus honey, but I have never seen anyone insist on eating “the most important meal of the day” like he does! For Tim, breakfast is a must, and coffee is a close second. Personally, if I don’t have to be anywhere, I don’t think about either of them until my stomach growls or I feel groggy. Tim refuses to start his day without these two essentials. But then again, I am reaching a peak addiction to soda as well, so who am I to judge!

Sadly most of us are addicted to something. Research has shown that TV addiction in the US fits all the criteria of a substance abuse problem! The average household watches 8 hours a TV A DAY! How that's possible, I have no idea, but sadly, I believe it. Fortunately for us, Tim and I aren’t huge television fanatics. Although, I am recently obsessed with the Bachelorrette, and Tim is a self proclaimed Sports (specifically football) Junkie.
Needless to say, silly addictions and obsessions are what make us unique I suppose! I’m not only addicted to Diet Coke, Coke Zero and all things bubbly, but I am also secretly obsessed with anything sweet and chocolately, cleaning my house, BlackBerry messenger  with Joce and Ash and more recently, blogging. WHAT ARE YOU ADDICTED TO!?

  1. I'm with Tim, Breakfast and Coffee are my addictions! Sadly, I have had to cut coffee from my diet over the past nine months and cannot resume until I am done breastfeeding (BLAH!). In the meantime, I am addicted to my new baby boy =)
