  • I saw that I was drinking over 600 calories of soft drinks a day. I saw my face puffy from the carbonated water. I had enough and quit drinking them 2 yrs ago. You can stop if you want. Just taper off a little at a time until you are down to one can a day then go to one every other day then you can stop.

  • I have had an addiction to Mt. Dew....10 years ago I was drinking 8 cans a day and when the Dr told me what it was doing to me and the calories well I quit and dropped 40 lbs. Now I have myself trained to just have one in the morning for a pick me up and maybe one at lunch.

    Actually Diet soda is far worse then regular. I understand though and addiction is what it is and there's nothing you can do until you WANT to quit

  • I do but not daily. I would say maybe twice a week or so. Lately we only buy soda if it's on sale because you could easily spend 6 or almost 7 bucks on a case of soda if you're not carefull. We drink light apple juice, Kool Aid and the kids love chocolate milk with dinner.

  • None through the week, maybe one or two on the weekends. Mt. Dew hurts my kidneys, but I love it!

  • I do drink soda, although I limit it to maybe 1 can a day. My hubs on the other hand somedays will go thru about 3-4 cans. Mostly I drink coffee (in the morning) and water, or water with a crystal light mixed in.

  • I love Dr.Pepper but the caffienne is so addicting and diet soda is even worse because you can get hooked to the aspartame in it. Right now I only have like a can every few days it could be four days it could be four weeks it just depends on what stresses me out. I used to drink atleast two cans every day, it bugged the mess out of my husband though so I'm trying to slow down.
