Detoxing is no fun
This is how much Diet Coke or Diet Dr. Pepper (or affectionately known as DDP) Eric had in less then 3 hours. The boy is addicted. And he has just gone through the process of detoxing this past week in preparation for deployment. Not because there is no soda in the Middle East, but because there is an unlimited supply for Eric's addiction. The soda on base where Eric is deploying is free, flows like milk and honey, and this fountain of... carbonated, osteoporosis inducing, cancer filled beverage, is located very near to his dorm room. Eric has high hopes of creating a new eating and exercise regiment with some of his buddies while in the desert and he wanted to start out caffeine free.
