    I Haven't Had Any Type Of Sodas In Almost 6 Years.

    I stopped drinking any kind of soda when I was a freshman (almost a sophomore) in high school. I don't drink anything that has soda in it or is made with sodas (no Root Beer floats). I was drinking 3-4 a day. One day (St. Patrick's Day), I just stopped to see how far I could go...

    I never drank much as a kid.

    When I learned how unhealthy it was, I decided to quit altogether. I haven't had any for 6 months and I don't even miss it.

    Soda Free

    15 years ago I was a total Mountain Dew addict. I drove to work with one in my hand and spent the rest of the day walking back and forth to the soda machine. One Saturday I was short on cash, out of soda and craving one real bad. I started digging through couch cushions...

    Not A Fan Of Soda.

    I never really liked soda, I don't like the carbonatedness and it's just not that healthy. The only soda that I like Is Ramune, that stuff is really good. But I'd rather be drinking something with benefits like tea, fruit juice or water.

    Pepsi, and any other soda out there, is like a drug. To me it is anyways. I had an easier time quitting cigarettes than I did quitting Pepsi. Every morning when I'd wake up around 6am, I'd grab a 12 oz can of Pepsi from the fridge. Drink that down. I'd be out the door by 7am, go...

    No Taste For Soda

    I can't remember the last time I had soda. If I want to drink something sweet, I just drink juice.

    I quit soda last year

    and it's been probably the best choice I've made about my body in a long time. I also actually started liking tea a lot more shortly after I quit. I used to hate tea but damn I can't get enough of it now.

    I never ever liked to drink soda until my husband got me into it! Don't ask how, but he used to ALMOST force me to drink it. After i got over the harsh tingling sensation of it traveling down my throat, i started to like it. It hasn't had any effect on my weight at all maybe...

    As a child, I would sometimes drink sweetened

    carbonated beverages like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, 7 Up, root beer, orange drink, and grape drink. When I was ten years old, I decided that these drinks were not good for me, and stopped drinking them. After that, I would only have an occasional soda just for fun, but over time, I...

    The occasional soda if it's some event,

    typically something diet. I hate artificial sweeteners but I hate high fructose corn syrup more. I can't drink caffeine so that leaves me few options. I usually just drink water and herbal tea.

    Never Had A Soda.

    You read the title right. I have NEVER had a soda. The closest I have come to drinking soda in my whole life is an accidental sip of fizzy water. My mom never gave me any as a kid, and I don't plan on ever having soda. I don't care what I am missing because I know it just...

    I stopped drinking soda August 23,

    1995. I just figured it wasn't a healthy choice after I read an article about high fructose corn syrup. Gave it up that day. Never looked back. And don't miss it one bit.

    Never Much Liked It

    Even as a kid I didn't drink soda much.  Well, root beer floats were good, but a rarity for my poor family.  I do think people drink and let their kids drink too much of it, and it makes them fat, but that's their choice, it's not for me.  I do like drinking beer...

    Not a Fan

    In 2004, I was in Israel with my family, and there was never anything available but water. I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks just from cutting those calories and sugar. From then on I never took another sip, and the times that I have, it's made me burp like crazy. Plus it's waaaay too...

    I'll Have Water, Please

    Whenever I have the option, I'd rather not drink soda. It's just not that appealing because it was never a "readily available" drink in my house ever since I was kid. At a very young age, I believed that water is the best option for quenching thirst. It's certainly not as sweet...
