Today's social dilemma came from an email I received this morning from Nina, who listens everyday. I thought it was a good dilemma because we're all going through stuff with New Year's Resolutions. This is what she wrote. Hey Jaime. My name is Nina and I’m emailing you this morning because I listen everyday and I have a subject that is hitting home with me right now and I thought you could discuss it with your social dilemma. So my husband who is a coffee and caffeine addict has decided to try and give it up as a New Year resolution. He asked me if I could do the same so he won’t be tempted when were together and I agreed. Well his will power is stronger than mine because it’s only been 4 days and I’m already sneaking in coffee at work. I feel so guilty but I only have two cups of coffee a day and he would have like 6 cups of coffee a day. Why should I have to quit too? I’m not going to drink any in front of him so what’s the harm, right? Am I cheating on him by lying and sneaking in coffee behind his back? Help me out Jaime. I hate feeling guilty but I don't think I'm really hurting anything. I'll be listening. Nina. Well, at this point, I don't think it's harming anything but it is lying to your husband so I'm not sure that's a great idea. But if it's helping him get over his addiction, then maybe don't tell him until a month has gone by. What do you think Nina should do? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
