This thread is very interesting but I'm more confused than ever. I have a serious Diet Coke addiction. I use to smoke 3 packs a day and was able to quit cold turkey, no problem. I think of myself as a highly disciplined person, yet I have never been able to give up Diet Coke for more than a couple weeks.

I started taking Effexor about a month ago and I'm feeling great but I noticed that since I started taking it that my cravings for Diet Coke have increased, it just seems more wonderful than usual (then again, many things seem more wonderful with Effexor :-)

When I realized that my Diet Coke habit was getting out of hand (my consumption more than double this month), I swore to myself that this time I would give it up forever. I even signed a contract and had it witnessed.

Now, after reading these posts, I'm starting to think that the Diet Coke might be a positive self-medication for me. Or is this just wishful thinking? So is Diet Coke evil or beneficial? I would really appreciate some feedback.

It allows you to look at 3-d models of molecular structures, and there are a lot of web pages with CHIME models of psychiatric pharmaceuticals. You can get it here: It's pretty cool. Unfortunately, I just found out that Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 and above no longer supports it! But it does still work with Netscape, and it should work again with IE soon...
