I don't even know if this is consider an addiction or abuse or what. Well, whenever I am extremely depressed, I feel like I have a great need to drink pepsi max. Sometimes when I can't sleep at night, I walk to the petrol station nearby just to get a bottle of it. I feel like I am addicted to it cos I feel better after drinking pepsi max and I am drinking it almost everyday now. Abused? I don't know. I wanted to put this thread in the substance abuse forum but come to think about it, I don't think I know much about that yet so maybe its better just here. I like pepsi max so much that I drink it sip by sip and as I do that I feel like I am numbing my depression but then again, sometimes it just felt worst after that. Does anyone else have an addiction as such?
