    2 gallons a day. Wow. That's a lot of sugar. I wonder if she still had all her teeth when she died.

    I would be willing to bet I drank that much when I was in the restaurant business. 12 to 14 hours a day, 6 days a week and Coke was the only thing I drank. I would get headaches on my days off and didn't drink that much Coke. But I would have a Coke first thing when I woke up and drank it all day. Throw in a pack or two of Camel no-filters a day, stress from the job, I was a heart attack waiting to happen.

    A good friend down in Houston has awful migraines several times per year. His old school country doc's orders were at the onset of an attack - drink one full sugar coke and take two BC Powder aspirin. My buddy swears that coke/BC is almost as good as whatever script med. he takes.

    I spent like $75 a month on prescription crap that did nada. I now take Equate brand "Migraine Relief" and GET Migraine Relief.


    How I knew the caffeine thing. I have it listed on my med list by active ingredients.

    65mg of Caffeine is one.

    If I drink more than half a gallon of liquid a day, I'm up pissing all night.

    Well clearly this lady was a model of good health: 8-10 liters of coke/day, 30 smokes/day. Ticking time bomb, enough said.

    The 3 or 4 times I had an epidural spinal injection for pain management, my doc said I might get some nasty headaches. He said to drink as much Diet Coke as I could for the caffeine. It's a good vasodialator (caffeine that is).

    And the Bravia.

    I don't drink Coke. Or pretty much any soda, for that matter. But for you caffiends you should check out my DIY Energy drink thread.

    All the caffeine, none of the crap. :supergrin:
