I like coke too but I can live a day without drinking one. But I have a friend who cannot survive a day without coke. coke in the morning, lunch and dinner. He treats coke as his water. For him, coke is his universal solvent! How bout you? Do you like coke? how often do you drink one?

A few years ago I would have atleast One a day. After learning of the side effects of them and the damage these aerated drinks were doing to our body, I would not have more than one a week.

I should change it to harmful effects rather than side effects. Here is a link which should help. I found it to be very useful. http://www.tuberose.com/Soft_Drinks.html

my son loves his coke or pepsi and has it for breakfast,lunch,tea,and in -between. As you said about your friend this is his water and i don't think it will change until the day comes ,and it will come when he has no choice but to give up drinking these softdrinks.

Hi! It's me again . I never drink any of them . No matter what brand it is , all soft-drinks contain harmful acids that could damage the digestion system of your body . So you always keep them at a distance and also ask your friend to follow you .

well i love coke very much too. i wish i can drink it everyday and every meal. however, i have a weak stomach so i get cramps if i drink too much of coke. i can only drink a can every other day. every time i try to drink one can a day i'll get stomach cramps within a week. it's really sad coz i really love the taste very much. nothing cheers me up more than an icy cold coke. cheers ;p

we love coke in the family, but not too much. my wife's family inherits diabetic persons so we try to avoid coke even if we love it too much. and aside from the sickness that we can get, in my family alone, one liter of coke is not enough. so it will be more expensive than to have a ten peso iced tea litro pack.

Every cola has caffeine,almost 30% of colories, sugar and gas, so if taken in access it could cause a lot of damage rather than the pleasure it brings.LOts of sodas,lots of water or anything in access can cause hovoc to the health,though this does not change the fact that i take soda and water as well but not in excess.

I drank Coke for four years straight. It wasn't the brightest thing I've ever done either. The results of that has been stunted growth, weight gain, and additional pain to my migraines. The migraines were there before, but the pain had doubled and hasn't gotten any less painful. So I stopped drinking so much Coke back in March. Right now I have gone down to a 2 liter bottle every few weeks.

HI, for me, I always drink coke after I played basketball or tennis, and generally, I prefer tea to coke, especially the green tea, I like it so much, and you can't have too much coke, it's bad for you health.

zI used to drink sodas guit a bit. Maybe even a couple a day. Now I drink mostly water. It is much healthier and I am not getting all that sugar in my system. Maybe twice a month now I well have a soda as a treat. And that is all that it should be used for.

Not quite often, I think there are only times that I would like to drink it like in summer. I rarely drink it because I know the effect and unhealthy things that we can get and it will cause illnesses in our body. But I really like coke, that's my favorite softdrinks and really are best if it is quite cold.

No preference for me. Whichever is available when i want it, either coke or other soft drinks. It is also not very often. Only when it is very hot out there and i am quite thirsty!

I go through phases where I drink a soda at least once a day, but usually only a few times a week.
