    I Feel Better Since I Stopped

    A little more than a year ago, I made a decision to stop drinking soda on a regular basis. I decided to stop my soda addiction mainly because of two reasons. One, I stopped drinking soda because I am trying to lose weight. I know when I didn't care what I weighed I drank between...

    Never Again

    I stopped drinking soda a while ago.  It will be three years on January 1.  I did it to better myself.  It's just not healthy and I don't need it.  I love it, but I can do without it to be healthier.  I encourage everyone to at least cut back on their...

    I would drink soda all day long

    and pretty much not drink anything else. About 3 months ago I decided to give it up. It was actually easy at first, but after a couple of weeks it has gone back and forth. Some days, especially hot days, I am dying for a soda others I don't think about it at all.

    Adios, Mr. Soda Pop.

    I quit drinking pop [yes, I am from the North] about a year ago. For the longest time I didn't drink at all, but now I occasionally drink it, but not in gallons like I used to. It's definitely not my first choice when it comes to having a beverage. I'll never drink it like I used...

    I'll Miss It

    I stopped drinking soda for my health. I love it, but it's bad for me, and I made the decision not to drink it anymore. I'm going to try very hard to stay away from it. I think I'm going to swtich to green tea instead.

    Once In A While

    Once in a great while I'll splurge on a soda; usually a Coke.  Today was one of those days.  PorkPie offered to buy me one, and I accepted.But usually, I can pass the soft drinks by.  Where I used to drink a 2-liter in two days, now a 20 oz bottle will sit in my fridge for...

    For A Number Of Reasons.

    I used to drink so much soda.  Then I saw how much weight you put on by drinking soda alone, and I laid off.  Now that my panic attacks are so bad, I absolutely cannot have caffeine at all.  I love iced tea, but that gets my nerves going.  Soda...

    Never Drink Soda Or Bottle Water Again

    I have been doing some research about sodas and bottle water, and from what I have learnec, I will never buy either one again. They are all acid based and I have learned this is really bad for your health. You want your body to be in a alkaline state, so drinking restructured...
