Drunk Is anyone else addicted to Coke?

Hello.

My name's Lord Snooty, and Im a Cocaholic.


Obviously Im not talking about the hard stuff.

Coca Cola

I know it has bad press: full of sugar, caffeine, used to contain cocaine, used to be a cleaning product before the gas went in, can clean a penny or a rusty nail in a jam jar..."ooh, imagine what that's doing to your insides", blah blah...

But I love the stuff. Always have. Nothing truly quenches my thirst like an ice cold gloriously-shaped bottle of Coke.

Thanks for listening

not addicted, but there are about 15 cans of it in my fridge

I call at a "Sunday morning" hangover cure ... it has to be ice cold and in plenty
supply - a bit like a shot of antidote

I crave it at times

Not sure if it makes me an addict - but I believe one can get addicted to caffeine...no?

Seem to remember I had a Geography teacher who was addicted to coffee.

I've never had a Red Bull, incidentally.

I think you can get addicted to anything

Even posting on internet forums, apparantly. Although I
think that is a ridiculous claim

I guess that's true! An addictive personality, as they say.

Forums though? As if!

I can see the hangover cure possibilities. I usually need the sugar kick it gives (and no im not diabetic - been tested)

Yay! ZF - welcome back

I occasionally have some if there is a dash of rum in the glass but otherwise I hardly ever drink the stuff and can't remember the last time I had some.

Oh I've tried non fat. Not for me I'm afraid

I think, if people are honest, that they don't like diet drinks but kid themselves they do because it's supposedly better for them

Well add more booze

You really wouldn't have liked the all inclusive at Hotel Alcatraz in Zante then. After 40 cocktails we were all laid low with pineapple juice poisoning. At least you dont have dentures then or do you.

i detest Coke.

Since i was a kid, soft drinks and sweets seemed - to me - to be like pumping utter rubbish/poison of zero health benefit into my body. I never got Coke, and barely - to this day - touch it. Its appeal is lost on me

I can't stand it - or any other fizzy drink come to that................or so I thought

Then I discovered Fentimans Curiousity Cola - for the first time in 50 years I had a fizzy drink and thought "that's great".
