I am in the wrong group!

I do not know why it took me so long to figure it out.  I am not addicted to Nicotine.  I am addicted to Coca Cola.  Originally it was regular Coke, but then through all the confusion of New Coke, and Coke Classic (anyone else remember that) I switched to Cherry Coke.  I have been on Coke longer than nicotine.  Lately its been 3 or 4 bottles a day.  


Now in order to kick the habit, I have had to avoid places that I used to buy it, so it just so happens I am not buying nicotine either.  But Boy oh Boy, some of these urges for coke are extreme.  I drink juice, water, or yes, sometimes a beer to try to push that urge away.  But I will not drink another drop! Remember NOSE (Not One Sip Ever).


So I feel the urge, the rush, the desire.  My brain identifies it as a response to lacking something it used to get.  I have been telling my brain it is nicotine.  But if I tell my brain it is Coke, well........ do you see where I am going?  How will the brain know?
