I broke this habit months ago and only have a soda once or twice a week now. Strated by only drinking diet sodas, then organic sodas, and now an occasional.
Today I made gingerale myself. 1st sliced ginger root, boiled covered in water, let cool, poured into glass pitcher, refrigerated. Then half ginger, half sparkling water in my pretty glass. Added ice. Giner is naturally sweet so donīt need anything else! Careful though- experiment with mt of ginger.
