    Default Are you addicted to Cola?

    I read the NZ papers and I read a story the other day about a woman who a medic said he thought cola had contributed to her death.

    I had been drinking 2 litres of diet cola a day until last week, when I decided to stop. It was hard. I had headaches, diahorrea and felt very, very tired until on day 3 I began to feel more normal again. I know that when I was drinking it, I really needed to drink it a few times a day, it was a craving. Is this something you've been through? Does moving countries make you more prone to whatever addictions you might have like nicotine or caffeine or did it help you give up?

    I drink way too much diet coke. Know what you mean about the cravings.

    That news item didn't help with my other half either- I now get glared at....

    I don't know if it was worse for me because I don't drink anything else with caffeine. Definitely I'd say if you ever want to give it up, to make it a weekend. You'll probably want to spend half your time asleep if my experiences were anything to go by. Does it also give you vibrating brain?
