I never drink either the original Coke or original Pepsi, so actually don't even taste the difference any more, at all.

I don't care about caffeine. As long as there are no carbs, and no sugar, I'm fine with it.

RE: Advice For A Soda Drinker
If you just like a bit of fizz in your drink, how about fizzy mineral water mixed with fruit juice? I love that. Works very well with grape juice and apple juice. At least those are my favourites for that.
Shouldn't drink too much of that either of course because sugar is sugar. But at least there are few vitamins in there and <enter other excuse for why that's better than coke>

Generally, maybe you can limit your fizzy drink intake to one a day for now, if it is really just cutting back you are after. Maybe have it with your lunch. That way you don't upset your stomach in the morning and also not before bed. You have it with lunch so that there is a bit of a food buffer in your stomach when the fizz arrives there. Dunno if it helps.

I don't know if La Croix sparkling water is as popular in other parts of the country, but it's gaining customers left and right here in Florida. It's got the bubbles of soda, but nothing else. It doesn't have a sweet taste, but it does come in a variety of flavors. It'll be an adjustment at first, because it's a bit of a shock at first when you're expecting sweet and getting something that's much crisper, but drink a few very cold cans and you may find that this is a very good substitute for soda.

I think La Croix was also a spell in Harry Potter.

RE: Advice For A Soda Drinker
I have recently limited myself (with help from a friend) to 1 small soda a week, alcohol once a month and takeouts once biweekly.

It's doing wonders for my health and also saving a lot of money... but I have to remind myself to drink because water is DISGUSTING.

RE: Advice For A Soda Drinker
La Croix is really good. Is the the flavor or the bubbles that you crave?
You can definitely find good flavored/carbonated substitutes that aren't soda.

RE: Advice For A Soda Drinker
I found it hard as well when I lived with my family who drank soda as well. I went full cold turkey and scrounged up enough will to not pick up a can or bottle out of habit. I marked soda as poison in my mind, and it helped me in my weak moments.
