    I Keep Coming Back To It.

    I drink at least 2 or 3 cans of coke a day, every day. I have quit a couple of times in the past... cold turkey... for a month or more at a time... but have always come back to it. I've started buying the 250 ml cans if I can which helps me cut back a bit but it doesn't stop the...

    Mmm...coke

    Actually, my Kryptonite is Mountain Dew, but where I live everything is called "coke" (Coke is good too.), so I'll go with that. It's insanely tasty, and, if not for its properties that are perilous to one's health, I'd drink a lot more of it. I used to be really bad about it...
