  • If you find out let me know, because my hubby drinks way too much also and i have tried forever to get him to stop.

  • Unfortunately you cant force someone do stop doing something, he is a grown man he needs to want to do it himself and if he does commit to doing it all you can do is not buy it or have it in the house.

  • You can't...he has to decide for himself. One of the best sayings I've ever heard in these situations is "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink" You can tell your fiance how terrible soda is, but until he decides for himself that is what he needs to do, it's going to be pointless to try to convince him.

  • If it's not in your home, he at least can't drink it there.

  • Do you do the grocery shopping? Just stop buying it. Worked pretty well with DH.

  • You can suggest it's not good for him, give him information on it, but beyond that...he's an adult, so he makes his own decisions about what he drinks.

  • If you figure it out let me know. I started drinking crystal light and that took the place.
