Addiction Anonymous



i have a confession to make...i'm addicted to starbucks. i know, the shame...oh, the shame! how can i continue to indulge in these pricey caffeine-riddled sugary cups of deliciousness on a frequent basis? its simple...i love it. they call my name. and whats worse...if i am in an unfamiliar place...i'll search for one thru my navigation. its like my crack. it calms me. it soothes me. it tells me everything is a-ok. my fave drink of choice is the tall 2% sugar free vanilla latte with 2 splendas. and CURSES! i tasted the iced lemon cake last week and now, my eyeballs water at the thought of its lemony goodness.
and i don't even LIKE lemon cake. my mum took offense to this because she makes a homemade lemon cake with the same icing that people seem to rave about, but i hate it. but not starbucks lemon cake...i love it and it loves me. there's a spell on me. those coffee beans must be magical...

High-larious. My mom's in love with their lemon cake too. I love their caramel apple cider. And those molasses cookies, yum! They have such great pastries.

Ice cream. Not every day or anything, but on the weekends, I love to have ice cream. I had to stop going to Cold Stone because the workers recognized me and knew my order. LMBAO.

Now, I've bet my bf that I can't go without it for 2 months--so I'm going cold turkey until October (sigh). What the h*ll was I thinking?

By the way chica--I posted the pics here - http://chicasinthecity.blogspot.com/2008/07/portugal-narrative-in-pictures.html. Thanks for reading the recap!

That lemon cakes is so delicious and the banana chocolate chip cake. Well I guess you can tell what my addiction is.... Starbucks cakes.

I had a chai tea latte addiction but then I realized how much I was spending in 7 days and I had to enter rehab. Now I am midtown manhattan and there is one on every corner. I feel like amy wino

I have to agree, I too think I may need help for my Starbucks habit. Tall Mocha Frap with 2% with no whip.
I must say though, I am doing well. Since gas went up to $472.13 a gallon, I've only had two and one was last weekend.
I also have a minor addiction to Sniker's and Lay's mesquite barbecue chips - at the same time.
Don't frown, my sister turned me onto it when she was pregnant and it is the -ish once a month when you're craving salty and sweet. ;-)

Hey Sistah!

LOL....I truly missed your posts while you were on vacation....

It used to be the iced coffee from McDonald's but I realized my addiction was creating unwanted pounds....lol.....I don't have a particular food addiction at the moment...but I'll fight a kid for a frozen fruit bar!!!

The Jaded NYer said...

so you're one of those that I see lined up around the corner at Starbucks in the morning, not caring if you're late for work LOL

I can't say I have one particular thing I'm addicted to... except maybe really spicy foods. I crave it something awful! I'm not happy until my tongue is numb and my whole mouth is on fire- spicy like that. my poor taste buds...

lol great post!
Dunkin Donuts has a coolata that comes in lemonade and strawberry. I ask the person waiting on me to mix the two flavors but I request that they add more lemonade than strawberry. It is almost pure sugar but it is soooooo good.

I used to drink up some white choclate mocha and eat the pound cake and lemon cake. But now since I gave up coffee and my car is drinking up gas like I used to drink starbucks, we had to release it. But I also love the seasonal drinks like pumpkin and ginger bread.
