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 don┤t need anything else! Careful though- experiment with mt of ginger.

I will admit that I am addicted to Coca-Cola. Diet Coke tastes DISGUSTING to me and Coke Zero is a little better, but still tastes weird to me. Recently, I discovered Diet Dr. Pepper. It is really good and doesn't taste diet-y at all! It really helps take the edge off my soda cravings and I don't have to worry about calories at all!
Though I've pretty much given up on drinking sodas/pop, sometimes there's just this craving for something fizzy with flavor. Rather than grabbing a soda, I have sparkling water (or club soda), and put in about a tbsp of whatever flavoring I want. I use the syrups they have for making coffee with, and there's a wide variety. The sugar free are even better. 0 cals and still delish. Great way to get your soda-fix
I used to think I could never go without a soda. Just thinking about not ever drinking a soda again would make me crave it even more. It was actually a lot easier than I thought, to kick. I mainly drink water and one cup of coffee a day. If I want a soda, I split one with my fiancÚ, so I still get the taste, but I get half the calories.
Since I quit drinking soda I lost 4 labs in a week and a half! Imagine the possibilities!222
