I used to drink at least 5 cans a day, sometimes in place of food. I was pretty thin. Now I am older and actually like eating and so I felt the need to cut back on the coke. I am down to 1 can a day. It is actually more special now and more enjoyable. It must have a 'glass' glass, a straw and lots of ice. I look forward to it when i get home from work. I work at a Dinner Theatre so at night we have free access to fountain coke so many times I cheat of course.
