I'm absolutely a hopeless diet soda addict, just like our food editor Maggie Nemser and many of Shine's readers. I have to say it's my single most unhealthy habit, and I don't really feel that bad about it. I mean, I exercise at least a little, don't smoke, drink socially but not often, and try to watch what I eat. So, what's wrong with a little Diet Dr. Pepper every now and again?
Of course, diet soda isn't usually now and again for me or most of you; I'm drinking at least one a day if not more. And since the evidence is constantly mounting that weshould pass them over for healthier options, why do we keep guzzling them down can after can?
So, out questions for you are: For those diet soda lovers out there, are you prepared to kick the fizzy habit? If you are, what'll replace your beloved diet soda? If not ready, what is it about the stuff that just won't let you go?
Tell us below, or feel free to go blog about it!

We know it's been a few weeks since the whole Eliot Spitzer thing blew up, and I think I speak for nearly all women on this site that we're VERY disappointed in Mr. Client No. 9. But with the question of whether his wife Silda should've stayed by his side through this madness, thinking chicks part ways.Read More »from Question of the day: Would you stand by your man if he were busted with a prostitute?
I personally feel for her. She's an incredibly smart woman who gave up her own very successful legal career to both raise her children AND support Eliot's burgeoning political career. So, having to see this proud woman with red-ringed eyes, standing by his side at that podium on the day he made his apologies to the people of New York -- it really just broke my heart. My feelings, of course, were, "I could never do that!" I guess it's just the very public nature of it, too, that upsets me. It's essentially public humiliation for her, as much as for him.
So, that's my question to you all: Would you stand by your cheating man? How about if were a high-profile situation? And if you would,

Our pals from the Daily Bedpost - Em and Lo - blogged last week that the male birth control pill is said to be coming as soon as next year, and that only about half the dudes surveyed in a CNN poll said they'd be willing to give it an honest try. But what the ladies seem to be worried about is whether the trying half would actually remember to take it!Read More »from Question of the day: Would you want your man to take the male birth control pill?
So, now we put the question to you ladies of Shine: If and when the male birth control pill becomes available, would you want your man to take it? And if so, would you trust him to take it daily the way women have to? Or do you think the boys just can't be trusted to reliably keep you from becoming pregnant?
Tell us what you think below. Or if you have even more to say, go blog it!

Our Work + Money editor Dory Devlin just featured a post from Marie Claire's Cubicle Coach that answers a reader's question: I thought I saw my coworker viewing porn on his work computer; should I report him?
While CC was pretty liberal about the whole thing in her response, we'd love to find out what you think. So, tell us in your comments or by posting your own blog about it. Would you turn your coworker in for trolling dirty sites on company time? Or is it just none of your business?

RodialEarlier this week, our Fashion + Beauty editor Jenn Romolini wrote about a new product from reputable company Rodial that claims to offer the firming, lifting, etc of a boob job, but in a bottle.Read More »from Question of the day: If 'boob job in a bottle' worked, would you try it?
While I think "penile enhancement" products like Enzyte are kind of a sad thing for a man to want to buy, this Rodial thing does seem like the equivalent for women. So, now I'm thinking, hey, at least it's better than surgery!
So, if you knew that the Rodial cream worked, would you give it try?
Speak up, and tell us what you think! Comment below, or go blog it, if you have a lot to say about it.
Glad to have you here.
