    I find the coca cola I drink the more I really want, not sure if I'd class is as a addiction.

    Coca Cola did used to be made from the coca leaf iirc

    you could become dependant on it for the cravings you get from it specially if your cutting and you have diet coke
    i find that if ive not had it for a day i get cravings for sugar but mainly the craving to drink coke

    Its happen to me, I used to drink pints of coke everyday. Its only when I read about the implications around coke and its affect i decided to cut down. TBH it wasn't hard just got the odd cravings every few days. It got to a stage where i only drank it every few months lol (sounds stupid i know) I don't crave for it anymore, just drink diet coke now and not very often (although i think it is a god send during cut)

    Regards,

    yes you can be addicted to these drink you have to be carefull on being to dependent on them because coming off them can make you very ill. if you are always drinking this stuff it always is better not to come off it cold turkey take a little day by day reducing your intake everyday.

    Im the same.

    Havent a clue how much pepsi max i drink per day, i think it must be about 2 litres a day if not more.

    But, as well as that, i drink loads and loads of water, my urine is always clear.

    Every time I mention aspartame I get slated yet threads like this seem more and more these days. I believe Coca cola just upped the amount of it used in zero from diet, wonder why?
