Default Re: energy drink addiction

Oh wow, this thread is soooo appropriate for me. It wasn't until last night that I realised how detrimental a caffeine addiction could be (looonnnggg story..alright, not so long, but I don't feel like typing it out) even though I'd had several bad experiences before (binging on coke to 'dull' pain)...I'm trying to come off of it, but it's hard. I LOVE coca-cola...I'd drink it nonstop if I could, and I even collect their products - coin holders, bottle caps, etc. I still drink coca-cola products (mind you, this is my first caffeine-free day so I might not make it as I've tried quitting in the past and it never works. Ever.), but not with caffeine. I also drank energy drinks and Jolt, and when I found Jolt gum and Jolt mints, I was in seventh Heaven. ^^ I could take those to school and stay on my 'high' throughout the day. It was weird...it kept me up during the schoolday, but somehow calmed me down enough at night so I could sleep. :S I was told bipolar and coke don't mix...well, bipolar and caffeine in general...but do I ever listen until I've experienced it? Of course not. Still, I'm working on it...one day at a time.
