I would try doing it slowly, use less and less each day until you feel that you can be without them.

Here's a clickable link for the article the previous poster referenced:

Also consider joining SP's Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge:

It's great to exercise regularly, but it's not the best idea to exercise more to compensate for something specific you're eating. So I'd try to get out of that habit, but rather focus on what you can do to slowly wean yourself off of these drinks.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

There are good articles in the SP site about how to break the sugar addiction, e.g. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrit
ion_articles.asp?id=1663 . I did it by simply going cold turkey on sugar. Keep yourself busy with sugarless versions of all the drinks that you have. After a week or two, your cravings will reduce, after a month or two, you will forget that you had such cravings.
