1 glass of the stuff a day wont kill you . Just some people drink it pretty much all day or all evening at least.
Better to just drink tea or mix it up some more (milk, coffee,tea, water, juice). After a while you probably will start to find it tastes like syrup. I really dont like it anymore.
Sugars added to Sweets, Chocolates and Drinks are much more complex and take a lot more effort for your body to burn down, and often they'll just get taken into the Blood Stream because they're not broken down in time.

OT: Let health freaks be health freaks if they all want to rage on coca cola just let them, it's not hurting you or me.
I have a 20oz bottle of Coke in front of me right now, The ingredients in order are as follows:
Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Phosphoric Acid, Natural Flavors and Caffine.
Not really all that great for you..
Ironically the high fructose corn syrup people are mentioning is starting to shift.
We have Dr. Pepper being sold with sugar (used to be known as Dublin Dr. Pepper since it was made and bottled with sugar in Dublin, Texas)
We have Pepsi Throwback using sugar instead as well.
I think in the US you can find Coca Cola with sugar instead of HFCS as well.
It's got nothing to do with health, though. The rising cost of corn has made it reasonably priced to go back to sugar and some speculate it will be CHEAPER to use sugar before long.
"There is good and evil in this world; we must find the black and white in the gray."
I drink Coke all the time and there's really nothing horrendously wrong with it; fashionable as it is to condemn such easy targets these days. In moderation its fine, as with most things in life.
"The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man." - Gilbert K. Chesterton
Cane sugar is sucrose, a disaccharide which is rapidly broken down in the body into a ... 50/50 mixture of glucose and fructose.
HFCS is not nearly so much worse than sucrose (and sucrose not nearly so much better than HFCS) as folk mythology would have you believe.
"There is a pervasive myth that making content hard will induce players to rise to the occasion. We find the opposite." -- Ghostcrawler
As for HFCS, yes it goes by different mechanisms in the body than glucose, but fructose is by no means some alien compound. The only problem comes from the amount of fructose, and the fact that its feedback mechanisms are different from that of glucose.
Get taken into the blood stream because they're not broken down in time? Where exactly are you getting your medical facts from?Sugars added to Sweets, Chocolates and Drinks are much more complex and take a lot more effort for your body to burn down, and often they'll just get taken into the Blood Stream because they're not broken down in time.

Again, professional views of an actively practicing doctor is going to be more important to me then a random stranger ont he internet. I'm not preaching to anyone, just asking them to look into themselves. If they find what I say to be wrong, so be it, but I can only go on what I know, I don't form opinions or views on matters without knowing about them in the first place.
The major difference though is I am prepared to accept that they may be wrong, but on a matter that has affected me personally, I know how I had issues with it.
