Yesterday... I had one of those small cans of gingerales with ice.

I gave up soda 15 years ago, but had a half a glass of ginger ale on the plane last week. I will stick with unsweet tea and water or juice from now on. I like to juice my own vegetables and fruit less sugar than store bought.

Can't remember. Sodas have caused me blood sugar issues so they were pretty much gone decades ago. Hate diet sodas. Rely heavily on carbonated water to give me a mouth buzz.

I very rarely drink soda anymore although I drank Coke often before I changed my habits. I still have an occasional Coke at home if I can spare the calories, but if I'm in the mood for soda when I'm out and about it's usually diet Mountain Dew or Coke Zero.
I don't really like the flavor of artificial sweeteners so I'm a lot more likely to have unsweetened tea than diet soda.

Many, many years ago. I have never really liked sodas or colas, way too sickly sweet for me and the diet stuff just tastes gross. I do remember way back in elementary school we did a little science experiment with our baby teeth. We put a couple of baby teeth in a variety of different substances, milk, cola, water and orange juice and left them to sit for a week. After a week the teeth in the cola and orange juice were corroded, especially the tooth in the cola. They looked gross and that always stayed with me.

This question really got my attention because it's been about three years since I had a soda.

Maybe I've had one or two within the past year when out with friends, since I don't drink alcohol. These were diet sodas.

We never buy them here for us at the house, though.

Diet coke... Thursday I think.

Regular soda... I honestly have no idea, maybe like a month ago?

Soda is a big struggle for me, just getting myself to drink diet to save calories has been a big step and I know it's still not good for me. I drink flavored sparkling water a lot but once in a while I still need my diet coke.

A whole one? on my own? I think it's been years.
My husband will occasionally get one, and I'll have a swallow or two... but they're so offensively sweet to me now that those rare occasions pretty much put me off of any repetitions for a while. I forget! lol

Does tonic water count? If so, then a week ago maybe. I had a Coke maybe 2 months ago. I don't drink diet pop at all, but once in a great while I really want a regular Coke, so I have one.
