I love a good Cherry Coke. I had been thinking I was okay with one soda a day but then I decided just to quit completely. I have been doing pretty good so far, better than I expected. I just aim to be soda free at least 5 days a week Saturdays I'll usually have one sugar drink.

Best of luck to you! emoticon

I have had a real soda adiction, upwards of 6 cans a day. I've since switched to using soda stream which is considerably better for you and lowered how much I drink total. It has made a HUGE difference.

Respectfuly,

I like to mix half a single serving of crystal light with club soda. Be careful with regular tonic water, the stuff in my pantry has 140 calories and 33 grams of sugar!

I like to flavour water with citrus juices. Add the pulp in there too for extra goodness.

I really enjoy flavored tonic water, especially lemon-lime. Gives me the feel of sprite. :) You could also try adding fruit to regular, or unflavored tonic water. Cucumber, berries, lemon, lime, watermelon, you name it!

I love soda! It's really hard to let go. If you have the money, I'd suggest getting a Soda Stream. I got one for Christmas (since my Mom knows I'm a sodaholic!) and it's really good alternative to traditional soda. No to low carbs and calories and without the other unhealthy additives.

i would say maybe switch to something like Sprite or Rootbeer since they are caffeine free. and try to stick to those two pops and just slowly try to get yourself to cut back from drinking a bottle to just a can of it. say if you drink 2-3 glasses of water reward yourself with a can of pop? just as a technique? i had the problem of "water is too boring" but i just bought those flavor packets, pink lemonade is the best in my opinion. but as previously suggested you could try some other drink you might like more? try Razzleberry Peace Tea. it's 99cents for a really big can, its pretty addicting :) another you could try is Simply Lemonade- Raspberry lemonade. but the healthiest and ( i think ) the best is V8 VFusion- try it in Pomegranate Blueberry. i think that is the best flavor. :) goodluck!

It is like an addiction. My other half struggles not to have fizzy drinks because water is "boring". I just keep encouraging her to drink more water and less fizz

Sorry for the confusion lol. It's hard, for a while I started drinking orange juice instead which helped, but now I'm back on the stuff and it's harder than every to quit. I feel like a junky lol

Ahh we use the same term in Birmingham UK where I grew up. I was just checking.

It may just be me, but I always found going cold turkey easiest.

Have you tried switching to a different drink like crystal light lemonade or something? I have never been a big soda drinker, but I know switching from soda to water is usually the hard part for people trying to cut back. You could also try seltzer water. It's still carbonated and comes in different flavors.

I've been struggling with pop my whole life. Does anyone have any tricks to deal with this issue?
