    Caffine...
    This is the end of the first week of not taking ANY Soda..(was drinking about 3 ltrs a day...No Chit
    and on top of that 3 excedrin (195mg x 2 so a total of 390mg plus the caffine in the soda)
    My body aches so freaking bad but I decided after having some kidney issues it was time to stop that and get in shape better and not to rely on the caffine to keep going...(been doing it for about 7 years now)
    I know it isnt DRUGS but oh well...

    i stopped drinking soft drinks today. last night my roommate and i were talking about how soda will eat away at stuff, so we put a penny in about 4oz of sun drop (for all you non-NCers, thats basically a really citrusy mtn dew). this penny was about black last night. this afternoon, when we took it out, it looked brand new. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    it gets better

    my roommate is building an AMC 360 for his grand wagonneer, and he gave me a stock piston as a paperweight the other day. we got the idea to take the wrist pin and half of a ring and put it in the sun drop. this was a dirty motor, the pin and ring were both covered in grease. 4 hours after we put em in the sun drop, the submerged part was rust free, had eaten some of the grease off, and was in the process of taking the polished coating off of the metal. ill get pics tomorrow when i get out of class.

    anyway, i dont think i want to be drinking anything that can double as parts wash. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    That's just the citrus in the drink doing what comes naturally. Try regular orange juice...it'll do the same thing. Hell, most of the best hand cleaners out there are citrus based.

    I'm a Coca Cola junkie, at one point having 6 or 7 cans a day...I cut that back to 2-3 cans per day right now and plan on replacing them with bottled water real soon. I still drink coffee though and don't plan on giving that up!

    Put tomato paste on a penny for a few minutes and it will come out shiny too.

    Stomach will handle that stuff fine. Personally I'm more concerned with the other additives and where all that coloring goes than how acidic it is. Besides the fact it seems to rot teeth out from the sugar.

    Been off it for a few months now. I feel better than ever, and I sleep MUCH better than before I quit. If I am going to have a soda, it's caffiene free.

    Dr. Pepper is my downfall. I can go through a 2 liter of it before I even realize I opened it. I haven't had any at all today, and I'm really trying to cut down my intake. I'm going to try to go 2 weeks without any. I'm pretty sure drinking all the pop I've been drinking lately has helped with my weight gain, which I definitely do not need, so I'm giving up soda altogether because diet pop tastes like rotten ass. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
