Oh man. I have never done drugs or anything(unless they were prescribed), and I barely drink. But I have found lately I have been drinking 6-7+ sodas a day! At least its Diet. But I sure feel guilty. Just thought I would mention this. Acceptance is the first step to recovery,right?[:D]

Mt Dew!? I'm not sure if its just rumor or truth. But I have heard that the high amount of Green Food coloring in that stuff decreases a mans sperm count. Like I said, I'm not sure.

Caffeine got me through nearly 20 years in the fast food business. I bet my last year in that business I was up to a gallon of cola, whatever, as long as it had caffeine, a day. It's been hard weaning myself off of the soda water/pop. That stuff will sure put the weight on you and will seriously mess up your teeth at that amount.

I'm addicted to caffeine. I drink coffee every morning and Mt. Dew every afternoon virtually all day. It's better than the 2.5 packs of cigarettes I used to smoke per day...[smoke]

What do you mean "at least it's diet"? The aspartame sweetner is made from formaldehyde and methanol, and it breaks back down into those compounds in your body. Do a Google search on aspartame and see what comes up.

[i]Clinically, chronic exposure to methanol has been seen to produced headaches, dizziness, nausea, ear buzzing, GI distiurbances, weakness, vertigo, chills, memory lapses, numbness & shooting pains, behavioral disturbances, neuritis, misty vision, vision tunneling, blurring of vision, conjunctivitis, insomnia, vision loss, depression, heart problems (including disease of the heart muscle), pancreatic inflammation (Kavet 1990, Monte 1984, Posner 1975).[/i] SHIT! All that's a normal day occurrence for me!

Rumor. Trust me, as an ex-UMass student (where Mountain Dew was easier to find than water), there was a vested interest in knowing. Heck, I think there's even a page on Snopes exposing it as a myth. 6-7 diet sodas a day? Not bad...not bad....at my peak I was averaging 4-5 liters of regular soda a day.....now I do that in about a month. My recommendation to you, go with something like Water Joe (water but with caffiene added). All the fun of caffiene but without the sugar/aspartame of the soda set.

That could very well be true, but they're usually swimmin' so damn fast, I can't get a good count. Plus they tend to blend in with the sides of the shower. As far as being 'addicted' to the stuff, if I go without caffeine for more than like 6 hours, I get bad headaches.

I heard that caffine and smoking kills your eyes...I've got 20/13 in both eyes...so I stopped drinking soda and sealed the coffin on not smoking...Just keep that in mind when I'm shooting against you at matches...[;D]
