I just call it "that good stuff that keeps me awake" or my addiction.

knew someone who had withdrawal from lack of pop (won't mention name of pop to avoid backlash, from companies), this guy would drink about eight 2-liters of pop a day

    I know a guy who used to be really overweight and he drank about 16 cans of C*ke a day.
    Then the doctor made him switch to the diet version and now he is skinnier than me lol.

    I'm surprised he's still alive. The average sugar content for most soft drinks is 120 grams/litre so he's at 1.920kg of sugar a day (just from the soft drink). The average person consumes about 1kg of sugar/week. One hundred years ago the average person would have consumed that in a year.

    As for the caffeine content 1L of cola (cola's a good moderate ground) contains ~100mg of caffeine. So he's consuming 1.6 Grams a day. The deadly dose (as in you will die) for the average person is somewhere around 10 Grams. Consuming this on a regular basis will lead to all sorts of troubles from heart problems to severely decreased bone density (oops, I stood up, there go my legs).

    Now 86.4% of stats are made up (including that one), and I'm not a doctor (or anything resembling one) and everything I've stated could be completely false, and I assume no responsibility for anything (especially that incident back in the 70's). I encourage anyone interested to research this further on their own.
