"Why can't I quit you?"

Those of you who follow my mindless Twitter updates (@loriandcurtis) might remember that I started my Starbucks detox on May 14. It has been a HARD week and a half.

Folks, I do not even consider myself a coffee drinker. We do not even have a coffee pot at home, but there is something about Starbucks that makes me CRAVE it.

I always get the same thing - White Mocha. Here is the description from the Starbucks website: "A delicious variation of the classic mocha. Rich full-bodied Starbucks espresso is complemented with our proprietary, creamy White-chocolate syrup and topped with whipped cream."

Doesn't that sound delish? Well, let me tell you... it is?

What is it about this drink? Why do I pay nearly $5 for a drink? Like I am some rich, Generation Y hipster... I cannot afford $5 coffee!!!

Yet, for some reason, today, on day 12 of my detox program - I broke. I am now holding a Venti White Mocha and savoring its goodness. (I am also filled with shame.)

OMGosh, I love that drink too! I get the tall, though. Venti is a little much for me. LOL
