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

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
