A couple of years ago, a study concluded that diet sodas can actually cause you to get drunker much faster than consuming regular sugar based sodas. You can read more about it in the article below from NPR: http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt...g-alcohol-with-diet-soda-may-make-you-drunker This recently caught my attention again, since I stopped drinking diet sodas a few years ago. In fact I pretty much stopped drinking all sodas on a regular basis. The only times I drink them now is as a mixer when I am drinking cocktails. Since I was the only one in my household who even drank diet sodas, the only soda available in our fridge is the plain old sugar based stuff. Recently, I did grab a couple one liters of diet soda to go along with my cocktails after a couple years of not drinking them. I was really shocked at how noticeably drunker I was getting, more rapidly. After my second drink I was already very noticeably tipsy. I quickly went back to using regular soda, and my buzz mellowed out much more to what I am used to. Has anyone else noticed this difference when drinking?
