Diet Coke heads – Can you get hooked on diet soda?


( — First thing every morning, Ellen Talles starts her day by draining a supersize Styrofoam cup filled with Diet Coke and crushed ice. The 61-year-old from Boca Raton, Fla., drinks another Diet Coke in the car on the way to work and keeps a glass nearby “at all times” at her job as a salesclerk. By the end of the day she has put away about 2 liters.

I totally know people like this. Diet Coke heads are like crackheads, but usually better looking. They are hardcore. I have only ever seen this with people who drink Diet Coke. I am convinced there is some chemical in it that makes people addicted. Totally bizarre…
