Dear Diet Coke,

I am dumping you!

You are a fake. I deserve a tall drink that is not made with unnatural sweeteners.

It is over!

Good Riddance!

Love, Supermom

PS. Tonight I plan to burn all of your pictures & next week I plan to have my 'I love Diet Coke' tattoo removed.

PSS. You suck!

Our first date.


I broke up with Diet Coke today.
Yes, I am sad & I am hurt, but it was inevitable. Diet Coke was bad for me.



Breaking up is hard to do, but learning how to move on after a break up is just as difficult.


This is my step-by-step plan to get over Diet Coke for good!


Accept it
Before I can move on, I know that I need to accept the reality of the situation. I broke up with Diet Coke. It is over! I know that I need to get over Diet Coke & move on to the possibilities of other thirst quenchers.


Distance myself
Maybe one day Diet Coke & I can be friends again, but right now is not the time. My heart is still freshly wounded & seeing Diet Coke will only make things worse.


Stop talking about Diet Coke
Once I have “let it all out,” I know that I need to stop talking about Diet Coke. Not only will I start sounding like a broken record to my friends & family if I constantly talk about Diet Coke, but I will also keep Diet Coke fresh in my mind & continue to dwell on its sweet, sparkling, caffeinated lure. I need to make an effort to talk about something else - or, better yet, let my friends & family talk instead.


Skip the blame game
I need to resist the urge to blame myself, Diet Coke, or anyone else (Superdad or the Superkids), for what went wrong in the relationship. Diet Coke & I tried, we both made mistakes.


Learn from it
I need to learn from the relationship between Diet Coke & me. Part of learning how to move on after a break up is learning from experience, which includes the break up itself.


Picture myself completely over Diet Coke
Picture myself looking & feeling fabulous, hanging out & laughing with my friends, meeting, talking to & maybe even flirting with other non-bubbly drinks (even if that prospect sounds downright scary) & just living life again.


Focus on me
Spend some quality time with close friends & family members. Take up a hobby, volunteer somewhere, or take a class. Keep myself busy. Do something to boost my self-esteem. Get a new haircut or hairstyle, get a makeover, go to the spa for a mani-pedi or buy a new outfit.


Get out there!
This doesn’t mean that I should try to pick up the first sparkling soda I spot at a bar, but I need to get myself out in the real world to socialize & possibly meet other decaffeinated beverages.


Don’t generalize & don’t compare
Don’t expect other drinks to be like Diet Coke. Remember, Diet Coke & I broke up for a reason. I need to have an open mind.
