I love cranberry juice. It is the best juice. It is delicious. Is it bad for me?

For the last two months or so, I've been obsessed with cranberry juice. I drink it constantly. Like, for example, last Thursday I went to the corner market and bought four (Four!) of those 64.0 oz. jugs of cranberry juice, and by Tuesday it was entirely and completely gone. This is not at all out of the ordinary - for the last several weeks I have been drinking cranberry juice at this prodigious rate and I don't know why - I just can't get enough.
At first I thought this wasn't really a problem. I figured it was better than chugging soda, and, you know, fruit juice, hey, fruit juice has to be good, right? But then I was at the store the other day and I noticed that there is also "light" cranberry juice - which, um, by implication means that the cranberry juice I have been drinking lately is somehow not light.
Now I'm wondering if I'm taking in a phenomenal amount of sugar and other nasty things and if all my well-intentioned cranberry juice drinking should somehow be curbed for my own well being.
Is it unhealthy to drink so much juice?
