I am not a coffee drinker. I used to love it, but it didn't love me back and I had to stop drinking it. So, when most people are starting off their day with a cup of coffee, I am starting mine with a diet soda. Coke, Pepsi, store-brand, it doesn't really matter to me. Once I have about 12 ounces of it in my system I think clearer and I'm more awake.
Would I consider myself to be an addict? Not necessarily. I generally don't drink soda on the weekends, but sometimes, come Sunday afternoon, I have to get to the gas station and get some, or the people around me will suffer.
