Re: Anyone else quitting SODA???

i quit soda a long time ago, but my husband still enjoyed his pop every now and again while he was out and about. it's easy to not drink it at home b/c i don't buy it! anyways, the way he quit his soda habit was to start drinking sparkling water. it REALLY worked for him!

Re: Anyone else quitting SODA???

I need to quit soda too. Just this weekend I asked my hubby to stop buying me Pepsi. We discussed the $ issue but for me it's more an issue of health. We both need to be healthier eaters and I really believe I'm addicted to sugar.

I'm currently working on that. Yesterday I fell off the wagon.
Today I'm back on it.

Re: Anyone else quitting SODA???

I quit soda about 6 mos. ago, for health rather than $$. I was a SERIOUS diet pepsi addict. I probably had about 3 cans/day. Looooooovvvvee DP. I started to get what I thought was a recurring UTI, but the dr. said it was actually a "sensitive bladder," which can be irritated by caffeine, aspartame, carbonated beverages (Uhhhh....diet pepsi is all 3!). So I quit DP and all that went away. Plus, I save $!! I also started to consider the ill effects of aspartame and rrecent research....not worth it.

So, if $ doesn't motivate you, how about health?!

ETA- sorry if that was TMI for anyone??

I need to quit. I think its just a habit for me "because its there". Yes, and more for health...but saving money and losing weight would sure be bonuses (even if I drink diet)

I'm a major sugar addict. Love Mt.Dew and Cherry Coke. I argee, quitting pop is sooo much harder than quitting smoking. Quitting is a health issue as well as weight issue for me.

Re: Anyone else quitting SODA???

I was never a big soda drinker (just cream soda or root beer once in a while). I quit it all together a long time ago. Now I'll have a sip at a get-together a couple times a year, but it always tastes gross to me. WAY too carbinated.

I'm a water drinker.

Re: Anyone else quitting SODA???

When I quit soda a few years ago, i switched to flavored carbonated water. Apparently, I just crave the carbonation.

(ps..I'm off the wagon now...)

Re: Anyone else quitting SODA???

I quit buying it but DH craves it and brings home one bottle a week anyways. Since it is in the house I end up drinking it too. I have no self control. The best way for me not to eat junk food is not to buy it.

Sadly this started just recently. We went years only drinking milk, juice, and water. No caffine while TTC. Now that DS is here I started drinking it again.

I cut way back 4 years ago. We still have it with pizza which is rare, but that's it.
