I can officially say I have given up soda. I was drinking sometimes almost a 12 pack a day but my usual was 6 cans a day. My soda was my water source. The minute I got up I cracked a can open and then drank soda until I went to bed and depending on what time that was depended on how many I drank a day. About two weeks ago I first bought a camelbak bottle that has a filter in it so I can carry that with me in my purse and not have to worry about having change to buy something to drink since I can fill it anywhere and the filter is in it. I started using the bottle a lot and drinking less soda. I one day got up to have one and it was to sweet for me so I said forget it. I still have one once in a while mainly when I am out and about and need a quick sugar jolt and I choose a soda over a candy bar because soda doesn't melt in my purse like a candy bar does if I don't finish it. I think what helped me give up the soda is I didn't tell myself I'm going to quit drinking soda I slowly replaced it with water until I got sick to the taste of it.
