    that was excellent! And I can relate to the story. I used to have 1 or 2 cans of Pepsi every single day until I realised that if I didn’t, I’d get a bad headache. Took me three days to get through the withdrawal symptoms, and now I’m soda free!

  • When I was in college I had terrible anxieties and I didn’t know where they were coming from. I used to drink one Coke a day at the time, and it wasn’t until after I graduated and stopped buying it regularly when I started thinking that maybe the caffeine was what was causing them.

    I’ll still drink a Coke every now and then, but these days hot tea is my daily beverage.

    A story like this is certainly relatable. Nice visuals, too.
