    I was cleaning my house today and I found three full plastic bags full of those bottle caps with the mycokerewards code on them...I also collected the tabs from the 12 and 24 packs.

    Not all of them were mine, I pick them up when I see them on the ground or collect them when someone hosts a party and just tosses them away. I also went as far as pulling off the highway to pick up 20 points...!! SO, yeah, I am suppose I am addicted.

    I submitted them and I got about 6,000 points...

    How many of you guys play this thing? What cool things do you look for to "cash" in your points?

    I'm thinking I'll get the car rental coupons for my camping trip...LOL!!

    Well, compared to you, I don't really have any. LOL! I think I have like 100 points. So, I'm not sure what, if anything, I can get for that.

    I don't collect them, but I am...was addicted to sodas myself. From the moment I got up in the morning til I went to bed at night, it was sodas all day long.

    I had to eliminate all that since I started my diet/workout routine 3 weeks ago. I have/limit myself to one Coke Zero a day with dinner (it says to drink a glass of wine or beer, but I only drink alcohol socially) and so far that's curbing my 'addiction'.

    So now, I drink nothing but water all day long and tea when I'm at home, though its black tea, I need to switch it to green tea when I run out.

    I used to drink about four Diet Cokes a day and thought it was ok since it was diet. But, my trainer said it actually makes me crave sweets and I end up just drinking more Diet Coke or wanting bad sweet foods.

    He was right. I've gotten down to one Diet Coke a day at lunch and sometimes I am able to go without them at all. Instead, I use the Crystal Light and green tea packets you can dump in water bottles. I still get a "sweet" drink, but don't crave ice cream or other sweets anymore. I also feel a lot better.

    If I can curb the headaches, I'd like to stop drinking Diet Coke all together. Then Jadamo can have all my points! icon_smile.gif

    apparently some research is showing that ANY artificial sweetener makes you crave more sweets. Something to do with not elliciting an insulin response.

    Ive never been able to stomach Coke or Pepsi or most any sodas. That sweet, syurpy taste is jsut too much. It tastes acidic as well.

    My addiction is milk. I drink about 1/2 gallon of skim milk a day, the colder the better.

    I have a HUGE sweet tooth, but for some reason I have never really liked any soda whatsoever. I will drink it as a last resort at BBQ's or parties or whatever, but I just don't like the junk... thankfully.

    My older brother special orders glass bottled cokes from Mexico, the kind that uses real cane sugar in the recipe...I drink a super cold one after a long hot day of yard work. Those don't have rewards, though.

    If you guys have codes you don't want, then just send them to my RJ mail. Thank!

    I worked at a Golf Course that only sold Coke about 2 summers ago... and it was my job to empty the recycling and trash. So I was addicted to taking the caps... we are talking at least 20-50 caps a day.

    It is so addicting!
