Doesn't have the carbs or the calories either. The only reason I'm not a mountain of fat is that I don't drink sodas.

I gave up caffeine completely about 8 years ago. Haven't looked back. Now if I drink soda, it's usually Sprite or caffeine free Pepsi. But I usually just drink water or some type of fruit flavored drink mix.

Same here. Too much though, and my heart goes crazy.

I've pretty much dropped all soda's from my diet over the past year however. The only time I'll have one is when we go out to eat. Not because of the caffeine, but more or less to cut back on sugar intake.

Yes. It is all I drink.

No, it is not addictive because it taste like shit. Try some Diet Mountain Dew, that stuff is my morning beer.

I have coke maybe once a week. I try and avoid it if I have to drink soft drink. I prefer lemonade and such cos its alot healthier

I'm sucking on a Diet Dr. Pepper right now.

Soda is worse than coffee. And regular Coca-Cola is even worse because you get addicted to both the caffeine and the sugar rush.

I knew a computer programmer back in the 80's who drank at least a six-pack of coca-cola a day on top of two packs of cigs. All the sugar rotted her teeth. They were brown and falling out. I'm sure her lungs were no better. She was 50 lbs. overweight and diabetic. She's probably dead by now.

Her daughter was stacked.

No but Dr. Pepper is.

One time, I was down at the hospital (I downed a whole 2 liter of Mountain Dew in about 5-10 minutes after exercising, and my heart rate went crazy), and while I was there I talked to the R.N. in Triage, and she told me that Mountain Dew has the same amount of Caffeine as twice that amount of coffee!

During the week, I get up at 0500 and get to sleep around 1100.

I ALWAYS have Pepsi on hand. Vivarin helps too.

Gonna switch to Diet Mountain Dew as soon as I run out, though.

i stopped drinking anything with caffiene in july sometime. i also started running (2mi a couple times a week). i've lost about 20lbs since then. damn!

pretty much all i drink now is water and pink lemonaide. if i buy a 12pk of mtn dew it's gone in 2 days...bad stuff! if i buy 'normal' pop (no caff) , it sits for days.

it'll make your teeth look like this --->

I think I spent my retirement on the stuff...

About 4 years ago I quit cold turkey...I still have flashbacks and feel the burning fizz in my throat but I shake off and down a cool glass of purified water.


(after giving up the daily 560 oz BigGlupaThirstyQuenchBusters I lost a small child worths of weight)

Dude, after I studied info on high fructose corn syrup I stopped drinking sodas.

I open a can of Diet Mountain Dew when I wake up in the morning, even before I take a piss. You can't tell me stuff isn't addicting. I don't drink any soda after luch, only water.

I used to drink diet mountain dew and beer. Now I only drink Diet Mountain Dew. The stuff is like crack. I can't get enough! Drinking 8+ cans per day is not uncommon.

I had no idea so many people on here like Diet Dew. Everyone else I know think it's disgusting [takes a drink].
Link Posted: 9/22/2004 6:39:41 PM EST
I used to drink a 6 pack a day or more. God I love that stuff, I miss it dearly.

Just as if one were to touch a pane of glass with a finger, a print would be left, though the finger would not be there. If you think that that doesn t mean much, ask yourself why the FDA regulates the use of homeopathics? When you get down to the atomic level, all matter is energy. Homeopathic medicine is POWERFUL.

Yup...I think I'll have one right now...maybe with a little bit of Captain Morgan in it...

You bet it is......*sigh*....still, can't quite get enough of that stuff!

At least until we all get diabetes!

LMAO, 9 cans and two bottles of coke on my desk right this second. Now going to go through it in the bag with the rest of the 10 12 packs this week.

Maybe this is why my tooth hates me
