After much nagging from my wife, I decided to stop drinking caffeine. I never liked coffee, but have been addicted to mountain dew since 1990. So my form of coffee for the morning was a nice cold can of mountain dew. Besides the caffeine, each 12oz can has 170 calories. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I had been drinking like 3 to 5 cans of dew every single day pretty much since 1990 until 2 weeks ago. The first 3 days of going cold turkey was pretty difficult. I pretty much had a constant headache and had no energy at all. Two weeks later, I am only drinking water, lemonade, and a variety of juices. The headaches are gone and I actually feel much better. It's not smoking, drinking, or hard drugs, but it was my little addiction that is now gone.

I will go take a swig in your honor. I like to put the Mountain Dew in the freezer for a little bit where it's just starting to freeze a little.

I lived on Mountain Dew throughout high school, college, and my first few years of full time work. The crowning achievement of my cubicle was a 5 story Mountain Dew pyramid built out of cans I'd consumed all by myself. I've cut down to one 20 oz. bottle per month or so, but I have upped my coffee consumption since I moved to Seattle. I think it's required by law here.

Here's an added benefit as well:
3-5 cans per day at 170 calories per can = 510 - 850 calories per day.
3500 calories = 1 pound
that would mean, you could be dropping 1 pound every 4-7 days.
