Well its been since christmas since I got any pop - as in actually bought a bottle of the stuff or a case of it. Now I use to buy a 12 pack when ever it was on sale, since for the past 4 weeks plus has been every week that its been on sale (half price or better). Yet I've not had the temptation to buy it, yes I've thought about doing so but I've not had the craving for it that I once did.
You see for Christmas my husband and I got the SodaStream for our family in the hope that it would actually cut down on our actual soda drinking in general - mostly to save cost then to actually save calories or for health reasons was the reason behind getting it, since we did the math the cost of it over buying pop itself came out cheaper.
At any rate, it was a failure to degrees, the person it was gotten for to help wont touch it and stand stand it on many levels so he's on his own for pop, as in he wont's it he has to buy it himself - which is only fair since we are paying out of our own pocket for the stuff for the SodaStream, instead of using the house funds like we once did.
In the start I wasn't a fan of the stream at all, I didn't like the taste of the stuff that came out of it and well I didn't think much of the flavourings you could get, for all that I love my ginger ale. But I do admit that given time and just going with it, I've just been drinking what I can make from the machine itself, making my own drinks outside of what the pre made stuff that they have on the market. But I've also since gotten into their Cola and Lemon/Lime syrups.
So thanks to the SodaStream I'm not drinking the pop that I once was, which is something I thought I'd never stop drinking for any reason other then a change in an extreme change in formula that would leave it undrinkable to me. I don't have any cravings for regular pop of any kind and I'm noticing that I don't mind the odd taste that the stuff has, even the fizzy water that it can make isn't that bad.
We'll see if we continue drinking just the stuff from the stream or if we do end up breaking the fast and getting regular pop.
