    I still like my diet caffeine free sodas, but I only drink 2-3 12 oz. cans a week and add a lot of ice to stretch it out.

    Congrats to all who have given up the soda pop.

Beware of those energy drinks, too....there's something not right about those (thanks, Diane.)

To GMFAY, it's never too late to change, even at 87..
Habits = Behavio r= Lifestyle

All the best to all of you,

    I think they aggravate all kinds of problems - I quit soda a while back and I think I've felt better for it, mentally and physically...

    Great article! I am on my 6th day Pepsi-free, and no diet pop substitution, just more water.

    I use to be a regular soda drinker before I was first diagnosed with cancer in 2003; then when I started chemo, it changed the flavor of a lot of foods, and soda tasted "metallic" to me. I gave it up when I was on chemo. Then a few months after my taste buds returned to normal, I tried it again and while it no longer tasted "metallic" to me, it didn't taste as good as it use too. After a few more months I gave it up for good and I do not miss it. I have noticed my acid reflux symptoms improved a lot not drinking it also.

  Hi Ann: Goof blog, so important to remember. I don't abuse coffee or diet sodas, but do believe they are not good for you. Just read an article about how the energy drinks are being blamed for depression, I agree. Water is so cheap, even bottled water, I carry a bottle arong with me all the time. Once in awhile I crave a diet pepsi, but am going to eliminate that too. Thanks for the info, Diane emoticon emoticon

    Never averaged more than 3 a week but it's been months since my last one. My 87 y/o husband gets upset when I don't have some on hand at home. Is it worth still trying him to change?

    You need to adapt to a substitute. Try herbal tea and's sweet and yummy.

    Years ago I quit soda. It is so sad in my area everyone has to have coke or other sodas or sweet drinks.
