Has anyone had a problem with addiction to diet drinks. My daughter was addicted for ten years,
Has anyone else had that problem?
Are you talking about caffeinated diet drinks? I've never heard of anyone being addicted to a drink other than alcohol or possibly caffeinated drinks.
My brother-in-law used to down Coca-Cola like crazy and he would get ornery when he didn't have any. I'm a coffee hound myself, though I can't match what he used to drink in Coke.
Those energy drinks all contain caffeine -- and other ingredients that are extremely harmful (?).
No, I do not drink them at all.
But I am writing to let you know that a major cause of obesity is, amazingly, diet drinks. Most diet drinks contain aspartame, which is a poison that screws up your metabolism. Furthermore, with diet drinks, you don't even get the real satisfaction of old-fashioned sugar, so that causes you to eat even more.
Furthermore, if you are buying "big gulps", "super-sized" anything, you are a super idiot.
Hint: why not try REAL fruit juice? NOT fruit flavored beverages that outnumber the real juices in the juice aisle at the store. READ THE LABELS. Natural juice. No aspartame or other artificial sweeteners. No additional sugar. No "high-fructose" corn syrup.
Prove that you are not a typical idiot. Read the labels. No diet drinks or juices. Real juice only. Is it really that complicated?

She acts like a crack addict, hiding it, spilling it a little in the break room. I just don't understand, how can this be? She has tried to stop before and can't. I wonder what other crazy addictions do people have? I'm not perfect either. I am addicted to coffee and BAD. I...

I just wrote my hub about my travesty with topical steroids. My whole story is on my website, which is linked to the hub page. I am in my seventh month of steroid cream withdrawal and am meeting people from all over the world every day that are going through the same thing. A little girl in the...
