How can I curb my addiction to coca cola?

Substitution: Coca Cola addiction is a combination of a sugar addiction and caffeine addiction. The person feels the need for instantaneous gratification and quick energy buzzes.

I have a bad coca cola addiction.How to beat it?

I have a bad coca cola addiction.How to beat it?

Taper off caffeine: And sugar. You can either taper caffeinated beverages themselves or switch to a caffeine pill and do it that way. If you want to taper the beverage, switch to a sugar-free variety to start, and cut back by one drink every 2-3 days. For most people, this is a 2 week process. If you are going too fast, you may get headaches. Pills have 25-50 mg, and 1-2=one drink. End up drinking just water, not soda. ...Read more

Yes, very: The high sugar in sodas risks weight gain, Insulin resistance, and ultimately type 2 diabetes. So-called "diet" drinks aren't safe either -- there are associations between drinking them and risk of strokes. Having been through this myself, i can tell you it's very do-able to shift from colas to plain water, teas, and sparkling waters free of chemical poisons. It's hard at first, yet worth it! ...Read more

I drank 4L Coca-Cola for malaise and Celiac symptoms yesterday. I worked long. Suddenly, my other eye vision went blurred. Recovered after sleep. Why?

Too much caffeine: You may have experienced the results of too much caffeine, brought about by 4 liters of cola. This amount of caffeine can cause a number of neurologic symptoms and may explain the visual problems. If the blurriness recurs, see an ophthalmologist. Refrain from caffeine overdosing in the future as this is a poor choice for malaise and celiac symptoms. ...Read more

What are physical symptoms when tolerance builds up to a benzo...Not referring to addiction?

What are physical symptoms when tolerance builds up to a benzo...Not referring to addiction?

Tolerance: Tolerance in benzodiazepines simply means that you gradually need higher doses to create the same effect. Even when used as prescribed, benzos have this property -- which differs from "addiction." addiction implies a behavioral pattern of focusing life on using the substance(s) as well as obtaining more. One can become habituated and tolerant of a medication without being "addicted.". ...Read more
