I love that its carbonated. If I have an upset tummy the bubbles always settle it. I drink water and juice (can't drink milk) but I dont think I could ever give up soda completely.

I like ginger ale best.  I also like root beer.

I used to be addicted to soda, too. It took a while, but I eventually weened myself off. I'm sure there are some great carbonated water recipes out there so you can get your fix but you aren't doing as much damage with the soda. 

Not trying to get on you, I know some people have given you shit, but it does do some serious damage. 

A friend of mine was crazy about Mountain Dew. Her dentist gave her a human tooth in a vile and told her to put some MT. D in it. Within a week, the entire tooth was worn away to nothing. A lot of studies are coming out stating pop, especially dark pop, is just as bad for your teeth as rubbing cocaine on them. 

I know the stuff is hard to kick, but it's doable if you want to try ! Good luck :) 

And yeah, aspartame in diet is really dangerous, actually. It's an ingredient that sort of slipped in the backdoor of approval through the FDA, and it shouldn't have been approved. 

I have used the crystal light stuff but after doing research on that, I've stopped a lot of it. 

Carb. water and fresh squeezed lime is refreshing!

The taste isn't close to the same though. The only one I found to be close to the real thing is root beer. They have a weird aftertaste kind of like diet, not as bad because I won't drink diet. That stuff is nasty lol.

Quoting FireMoonGypsy:

Geta a soda stream. 

They are starting to put stevia in their products so it's not nearly as bad as a regular coke. 

I have one, but I actually just use the carbonated water and add stuff like crystal light to it. I love carbonation too.
