Hey now, settle down there.

I wouldn't hate you for that. What about iced tea, though?

Iced tea is pretty great, I'd drink it all day. But that's got about as much sugar in it as any soft drink. Sounds healthy, but the tea is a lie.

      I used to drink a can of some sort of pop/ fizzy drink/ icetea /whatever a day. I stopped and I drink mostly water. I'll have the occasional coffee if I am out, or a glass of juice (not from concentrate) maybe once or twice a week.

      I lost like about 5-10 lbs just from quitting the soda alone. And to be honest, after I quit, it was hard (tasted so good and so addicting haha,) but after a little while I was feeling a lot more refreshed. :3 Totally worth it.

        I just dont like water, lol, it's tasteless and boring, yeah Soda is addictive and I really do try to limit it so I will often drink Iced tea in place of plain water, Iced tea is really great. I get it usweetened though and add a packet of sweetener and some lemon, delicious. Dont make me give up my soda though, I dont drink much but I like it, I actually like Mountain Dew a lot.

        My friends keep trying to quit drinking soda and they never last more than 3 days before they fall off the wagon. I'm glad I quit soda a while ago.

          Funny, I just bought myself a bottle of mountain dew. I'll be drinking it so I can stay awake during my 3 1/2 hour history class.

          To remain on topic (kinda), I adore soda...but I'm more of an Iced Tea fan rather than other drinks. I can't get enough of it, it's an addiction sorta. xD

            I actually got myself off pop now. The best way to do it is:

            a) don't bring money to school so you can't be tempted to buy pop
            b) don't buy it for groceries

            Naturally you get used to it by cutting out its availability and drink something else. I got into green tea instead with some orange/apple juice on the side. No visible weight loss but the weight incline stopped lol.

            Oh, god, I don't drink any soda, my adventures into the realm of iced tea are limited (I LOVE IT BUT I ALWAYS FORGET TO GET SOME) tea and my desire for alcohol is zilch. Am I a fun person or what?

              Alcohol is bad in large and regular doses; there is nothing wrong with having a drink every now and then! :3

                It is soft/fizzy drink in the land of Tea! :3
                Speaking of which, I must be the only British guy to not drink tea or coffee! O_o

                Good! Now's a bad time to start drinking tea since it increases your risk of getting prostate.

                I never would have thought Tea would case a rise in prostate cancer.

                Haha, that sounds about right. Some of the stories I read make me laugh.

                "Eating apples increases the risk of dying early."
                ifyoueat100aday


                Obviously, I just made that up, but they take everyday foods and say if you eat a lot of this, it will be bad for you... no duh!
