Do you think its possible for your stomach to become dependent on a coca cola fix? On the strict orders of my dentist I stopped drinking it about six weeks ago. This was after a period of probably twenty years of regular usage. The thing is my stomach has been all over the place in those six weeks, constipation, constant grumbling and the odd flash of diarrhea.

Probably sugar withdrawal symptons.

There's sugar and caffeine in it I think.
It'll take some time for the body to adjust.

A sudden change of drastic diet would definitely have an effect.
Your body would have gotten use to certain chemicals and built up resistances to them.
The sudden lack of one incoming chemical then would have an effect alone on your body that was still producing corresponding chemicals to counter the damaging work of the stuff.

Its like mixing an acid with a base. Each cancelling the other out.
Take one away and what are you left with - and if it can't find something it was meant to work on, it still sits in your system and it won't sit there doing nothing!

When in college I sometimes had coca cola cravings, and found that the Tesco brand apple juice satisfied my craving. Dunno why, but you should maybe try it?

6 weeks is a long withdrawal time though.

QI seemed to believe crisps were far worse for your teeth than coke. You given them up too OP?

coca cola dependence?


Less a dependance, more a fizzical attraction.

had the same thing with boost + sausage rolls breakfast habit a few months back. They were deep fried sausage rolls not baked! Only took about a week for the cravings to go away.

The cravings were bad though - my body wanted a big dose of fat, sugar and caffeine to get me going in the morning. I still miss that breakfast. Oats just arent the same

I'm not really a crisp fan so never really ate them regularly.

Yes. I would have had a can almost every day.
