People are addicted to diet soda, those made by one of the two largest soft drink companies in the world. They're drinking like 6 to 12 diet colas every day. And, they're in denial about the oddity of this obsession. What other beverage can you name - besides water or beer (and then, only in the case of an alcoholic) - that can physically be consumed in such large quantities on a daily basis? I've asked people for their opinions. The diet cola drinkers get almost defensive and refuse to consider the question. The non/more moderate diet cola drinkers shrug and suggest maybe the low calorie aspect. As if drinking diet cola is similar to drinking water and that's why people are able to consume so much of it. I can't figure it out.
