Product Type: Coca-Cola Soft Drink
Newest Review: ... introduced me to Coca Cola that I knew what I was missing. I have loved the stuff since the first drink. The best drink on a cold day... more
Do I crave it because I love it or because I feel I need it??

Coca-Cola is by far my favourite drink, I would say I'm probably addicted to it, I choose it over water and I can barely go a day without having any! I don't even want to admit on here how much I drink a day. It's that ice cold fizz I feel at the back of my throat when I drink it that I'm in love with, it's so refreshing. Definately best served ice cold from a can form or at resturants where it is super super cold! Me and my mum have glass bottles as a treat, which I love because it feels quite retro and reminds you of how old coca-cola is and feels very summery.
I'm not a big fan of other flavours, especially the diet and zero as they take away so much of the original sugary taste. I can taste the difference blind folded and can tell if I've been given pepsi at a resturant (which I do like but not if I've already had coke that day as it definitely tastes different)
As much I do love/need coke though, I want and need to cut back. My teeth have a definite yellow colour and it causes bad breathe which I hate. My skin and hair are very greasy and I am sure that coca-cola is the main cause of this as I know bad toxins are in there blocking up my pores. The caffiene in it also causes me to crash and be super awake through out the day which is very unhelpful and often messes up my moods and ofcourse keeps me up late at night. I especially drink more if I am hungover as I can feel my body craving the sugar.
Also if it is not cold or it is flat it tastes disgusting, it's barely drinkable and it's not even a nice colour so I basically am in love with a cold sugary subtance, I have come to the conclusion that I need help!
Proud to say I have managed to stop drinking coke! I have not had a single sip since the start of 2013 :D I am feeling much healthier and less sluggish because of it too!
Summary: I have a love/hate relationship with cocacola and need to sort it out!
