I will simply state that I haven't been able to drink soft drinks since I was 19 years old. They started giving me frequent, severe bladder infections, ultimately requiring the assistance of a urologist.

Fevers, throwing up, nausea, bleeding, and catheters just are not good prices to pay for a Coke or a Mountain Dew.

Oddly enough, I was never a massive soft drink drinker, even back then. I consider it (again) a blessing, as the health issue forced me to make healthier choices early in life, which I probably wouldn't have, much like any normal person.

Also not saying I make the best choices all the time, either, but one off the list helps, yes?

Default Totally opposite

I was raised in a heavy soft drink house. My mother would keep a full shelf in the fridge of nothing other than canned pepsi, diet pepsi, and pepsi free products. I guess because I was raised on the stuff, I have become "used" to it? Any time I try to wean myself off soft drinks and drink more water, I feel the urge to go a lot even to the point it hurts. Maybe that is my body getting used to the water and flushing years of carbonated beverages out.

One day I will get away from soft drinks entirely.

I have given up soft drinks for several years now! I even recently cut way back on drinking any fruit juices because of the sugar content! I try to drink mostly water!

Even though the phrase "soft drink" is used to differntiate soda from alcohol, a more appropriate term would be "hard drinks" or "sweet acid."

Although I indulge from time to time, mostly during the holidays, there is really no upside to the beverage when it comes to the health of your body.

Awesome drop, OP!

Default No High Fructose Corn Syrop

Alison here, and I will tell you that I am always reading label it is not just soda it is everything. I went to buy some "Hill Shire Farm's" Italian sausage and it had High fructose corn syrup in it. I looked at their kielbasa that same, hot links the same. This stuff is poison and they keep putting it in our food. I only shop at Whole Foods now.

I recently gave up soft drinks too and never looked back .

It's amazing how much better I feel. I sleep better. I wake up more refreshed. All from kicking my Diet Coke habbit.

Not to mention I lost 3lbs too
