>Health and Nutrition>Why is diet Coke addicting?
When I was aprx 17, my dad caught me drinking beer.
With about 6-7 empty cans at my feet, I exclaimed: "I'm not trying to get drunk dad. I just like the taste." "Son, I like Diet Coke, but I don't sit in a chair and drink 7 cans"

similar tale to tell. when i was 13, my dad caught me masturbating out of my bedroom window whilst my pants were round my ankles. i struggled with a response tbh, & he too, was stuck for words. 24 years later & things still remain a tad frosty between us...

Everybody talks about it like it is. Is it? Why?
I mentioned this in another thread, but one of my goals this year is to break my diet coke habit. This has not been easy for me. Normally 3 20 oz. bottles by 12:00. One at lunch and two more the 2nd half of the day. I really think it is more than just the caffeine. I've tried other drinks with caffeine in them, but always crave diet coke / diet pepsi.
