  • I've started telling myself about how much it costs and that that money could be going for something else, I started drinking tea. Then, everyone now and then I would have a soda, and I started to dislike it.. IDK. it's different for everyone. Good Luck! :-)

  • I have the same problem. I have tried to substitute for green or oolong tea for the caffeine (they are great for weight loss, too). It works some days but not always. I do not keep any soda in the house so if I want one I have to go to the store, unload 2 kids and pay more for a single rather than buying in bulk. There are many days that it is just not worth the effort and I make due with tea. You could try the mini cans to wean yourself off. Soda is a huge issue and you are definately not alone with your batte. I quit smoking a million times easier than any of my attempts at quitting soda.

  • Just stop buying them! Buy a filter pitcher and start drinking water. You can add lemon to it or get the individual packs to flavor it. (Crystal light is good). I know its hard but you can do it. If its not in the house you can't drink it. ;)

  • If you limit yourself to one every couple days, maybe that will help with the cravings, but you aren't drinking it everyday. Or if you still want it everyday, try only having one small (like 8oz) glass a day. I was addicted to pepsi forever, but have recently quit and have already lost 7 lbs in two weeks.

  • I just stopped buying them altogether. I went through actual withdrawal from them! that freaked me out and now IF I have a soda it is few and far between (though I quit for a totally different reason than you).

  • It is a matter of how much you want this and how much will power you have. " I am the problem and the solution" This is up to you, no one can do this but you........ If you want to solve this, you already know what to do..... Just switch to tea, water, and non soda alternatives.....

  • Just stop buying them and start buying the little powder packets to add to your water.
