We all have our guilty pleasures. Some people can't live without coffee, some can't live without reality TV and some can't live without aspartame. I would know, I used to be addicted to it myself. I can thankfully say I can live without it now, but the addiction was too real. 

It's well known that people are either team Pepsi or team Coke. No, they do not taste the same. Diet Coke is another world, it's the tears of angels. No matter what anyone tells you, you can't give it up. You assume your addiction is okay because other people are addicted to worse things.
