Just drink lots of water if your dehydrated, it's many many times better than a cola or what ever.

I find it pretty fascinating & some what odd that people can't stop drinking soft drinks. I guess I know alot of people who might be like that, just never really thought about it.

When I stopped did try regular water but I find it doesn't really quench my thirst (I can go through 3-4L easily and still feel thirsty). Plus the water in my building at work is nasty so i would have to bring bottles. Maybe when we move to our new building next year I'll try water again

good for you.

when i was a kid i use to drink 6-12 cans a day of soda. for Y2K (year 2000) i decided my new years resolution would be to not drink soda for a whole year. well i did it. and i was actually very proud so for 2001 i did the same thing. and every year since :p

only times i DO have some soda is when its a mixed drink.. like jack and coke :)

but mainly just water, juices, milk or beer is what i drink.

... ohh and havent been to the dentist in ~ 5 years

I've been trying to quit but always went back to it. Longest i went without pop was like 2-4 weeks. It's cheap(that's the main reason)

I gave it up the summer two years ago or so, after I found a sugarless water soluble drink I like, maybe even better. After about half a year I did star drinking cola again on weekends though since my GF also drinks cola. So no we drink one or two bottles on the weekend(1.5l shared). Which I think is the best solution, i ge some good cola on the weekends, and I'm not drinking 1.5 l a day anymore. Quitting altogether makes little sense.

Hell yeah!

I did this through 2011. Now I ONLY have fizzy drinks when I go out to a restaurant or something.

Well done to you. It was a great challenge for me.

Addicted to pop ?

:laugh: I thought this thread was about Alcohol

Seriously? I can see why drinking too much would be bad for someone, but addicted ?

Aspartame is probably the only bad thing in certain diet pops

I've largely quit drinking pop/soda/whatever years ago. Because the 2-litres-of-Coke-a-day habit I used to have was a) very unhealthy and b) I decided it was time to stop the horizontal expansion.

Having lost about 20 kg since last summer I'd say it was a good idea.

I gave up Coke/Pepsi a few years ago when the caffiene started sending my heart crazy. The best i'll do is one glass in a year now, and that's a real treat.

Congrats. In the last 6 months, I've moved from about 4 a day to about 1 a week (usually when I go out for lunch on Wednesday). I still crave the taste, but I feel much better.

I only drink coke when someone has visited my home and the bottle is half empty. (someone needs to finish what they started...)

Other than that, I only drink water, coffee, fruit juice and tea. (in that order)
