Help. My name is ____ and I'm a Pepsi-holic. What can I drink instead?

Okay, so if you're reading this the title brought you in. Truly, I love Pepsi, but I have decided (sadly) to cut down to only 1 a day. It's day 5 and I'm following my rule, but I'm so sick of drinking just water instead. I drink juice at breakfast and usually water or milk at lunch and milk at dinner. What can I drink that would be better than Pepsi for in between meals and after dinner besides just water?

  • I drink Iced Tea or I fill a glass with 3/4 water & top it off with Cran-Apple Juice. I was a diet soda addict but stopped when I got pregnant. I actually felt like I was in withdrawl! Now I can't stand the taste! Go figure.

  • I love Pepsi... I do limit my consumption by only drinking it after 10am.. ROFL... I've really tried to walk way and I can for days... but it draws me back in.... I don't believe it is "Pepsi" we are addicted to... it is the carbonation! I'm fine with my Black Cherry bubbly water that has no calories, but plenty of fizz! WoooWooo... (She says this as she glances over at the Pepsi can dripping condensation on the side table) ...sneaking away....
