This is a continuation of previous post, and I divided it for a reason. Now I’ll tell my personal opinion on soft drinks.
Indeed, nowadays many people prefer coffee to tea for its stimulating effect. And I’m concerned about it. This isn’t a decent thing to copy from West. Not coffee itself, but a tradition to drink gallons of it. America is especially terrifying at it.
You know, anything you do, creates a mental addiction. It’s human nature.
If you forget your cell phone at home and don’t even expect any calls, you’ll still be uncomfortable.
Same thing with your favourite web-sites, clothes, relationships. These things are unnecessary for your body surviving, but their lack makes your worry. It’s absolutely normal, until you come across much worse things. Like those, which ruin your body and often create physical addiction. Smoking, for example. There’s nothing more to elaborate about cigarettes; they are poisonous for a body.
You may be unaware, but big amounts of coffee are harmful too. They make your heart overwork, and you’ll die earlier, because heart is the only organ that never rests. If you regularly have coffee, you’ll consequently have sleep problems. Then you’ll begin to take soporifics, which also destroy your body, as any medicine. Generally speaking, I wonder how easy Westerners take different medicines like antidepressants or already mentioned sleep drugs. Don’t you realize they have side effects? Any remedy has.
Too bad, American culture shows coffee as a regular drink, which confuses people. And they drink a cup every two hours. Same tradition rises in Russia. Majority of clerks is unable to wake up without a cup. People become dependent on it. And dependency on something artificial cannot be good.
Another bane is Coke. I don’t understand any reason to drink it. Coke won’t satisfy your thirst. And it could be hardly considered tasty. This acid even erodes iron, let alone your stomach. The only thing you get with every sip is one step closer to diabetes. And, yes, Coke is a stimulator too, it causes physical addiction.

Never depending on any stimulators is my life rule. Hope, this disaster will skip over Russia.
