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
