I'm surprised by how many people have given it up here, tbh. I drink the stuff like crazy. Then again I'm an 18 year old bum. When I was at college (read: not living at home) I would drink around 12 liters a week, mostly diet (not for lack of sugar, I like the taste better), almost always caffinated. It'd be all I'd drink, except an energy drink or two just about every other day and occasionally some coffee.

Looks like I have the least healthy habits here  :lol

I used to drink soda like a mad woman. Probably a 6 pack a day or so. I decided that probably wasn't very healthy and now limit myself to one caffeinated drink a day with lunch. When I did that, I dropped 10-15lbs relatively fast.

I used to drink loads of sugary soda but I don't anymore, it plays hell with my bladder and gives me really bad pain. I'm a sucker for diet sodas though, I adore fizzy drinks and still drinks just don't quench my thirst at all. I'm happy with plain soda water or carbonated water, though, it just has to be cold and fizzy.

Besides the excess calories, my main problem with it is that it's worthless for actual hydration. If I'm drinking soda, I'm not drinking water. It doesn't take long for that to make my body feel terrible.

I think because of how much healthier I have been eating (especially eliminating a lot of carbs/all grains including corn), if I do drink a sweet soda of any kind, it makes my teeth feel brittle and very sensitive.

Around the end of high school I started drinking less of it. But since then I have pretty much abandoned it except maybe a diet soda every few days at most.

I drink a lot of Diet Coke/Diet Pepsi. Usually at a restaurant I'll have 2 or 3 glasses. For some reason fountain soda from restaurants tastes much better than cans and bottles that are sold in stores. At home I mostly drink Diet Raspberry Snapple and water. I'd be able to give up soda easily but I'm addicted to Diet Raspberry Snapple. I have to have at least 1 a day.

I used to drink a lot of Dr. Pepper and Ginger Ale, but two years ago I swore myself off of them and switched to the diet varieties.  I'll treat myself with a Blenheim Ginger Ale if I can find it (South Carolinian spicy Ginger Ale) but other than that I avoid nondiet sodas like the plague.

I'm fighting very hard to cut back on bad foods and drinks because I really need to lose the weight. I now drink only one or two Cokes a week (and that's on Saturdays) and a "treat" (chips/ junk food) and that is it. For the other six days, I only eat my meals, one glass of milk a day, sometimes a bottle of Coke Zero (albeit, not often), and nothing else in between meals unless it's a fruit or vegetable. I am feeling better already. And I find that when I do have my Coca-Cola on Saturdays--and other treats--I enjoy it more because I don't have them often.

I used to drink soda. I think my favorites were Dr. Pepper and Sprite. Never cared much for Coke, and I never liked Pepsi at all.

However when I was like 17, I just randomly decided to never drink soda again. And almost 10 years later, I still haven't. Easy as hell to give up for me, I haven't even had carbonated water.


But yea, Soda's pretty bad for you. But now a days, it seems most people are hooked on energy drinks or the like, never understood those either.

Same except now it's been 5 years for me.

I drink quite a bit, but only quite specific brands and flavours. I love Coke, Vanilla Coke and Schweppes Lime. Mountain Dew is okay occasionally. Would never drink anything else.

My favourite drink in the whole world is Lemon, Lime and Bitters, which, unfortunately, I've never encountered anywhere outside Australia and New Zealand - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemon,_Lime_and_Bitters

Plus, when it comes to alcohol, about half my drinks are Coke mixed with something.

I drink way too much diet soda.  Right now I drink about two cans during a week day (one with lunch, one with dinner) but I drink 32 oz drinks from 711 or wawa fairly regularly if I go to such a place.  Id like to cut back cause its so bad for you, but its also sooo tasty and gives me a bit of caffiene.  When Ive tried to stop in the past, I get bad head aches.  Im definitely addicted.

I drink too much soda; it's the main thing that keeps me going during the stressful academic year. I know I should stop but I keep putting it off. Soda is probably my main vice. Coke and Dr Pepper are my favorite sins.

I've pretty much cut all soda out of my diet, with one exception:

 If I'm really feeling fatigued or tired while in class or studying then I will have a can of Mountain Dew. But not all the time. I do drink a shit load of water though.

I used to drink it all the time...I loved grape soda, hard.  We had a bunch of glass bottled sodas at our wedding and we had like a case of coke left over from it.

But I'm more of a coffee drinker.  You get your caffeine more efficiently.

I used to drink a lot of "Fizzy drinks" used to go through 8-12 cans of Coke Cola in about a week sometimes. Used to love me some Dr Pepper and Energy Drinks.

But, I haven't touched any fizzy drinks or beverages since September 2011. No real health reason, bit of reflux so I wanted to cut it out. Has it helped me? No, not really. Do I miss fizzy drinks? Not really either. I would happily drink water and cordials and not care anyway.

Dr. Pepper is probably my favorite tasting soda, but I feel crappy afterward almost 100% of the time.

I recently lost a lot of weight, and a lot of that weight had come from drinking too much soda.  So while I absolutely adore soda (Sprite is my favorite, followed closely by most other kinds), I also sort of hate it.  Nowadays I drink Sprite when I go out to dinner.  Other than that, the only soda I drink is Coke Zero. 
Sincerely,
Jaffa

I love soda.  And I crave it.  All the time.

I successfully weened myself off it for awhile there and giving it up aided in my losing 30 pounds last year. 

And then I started working a second job, and I find myself without time to work out, and without time to prepare meals the way I would like to (or time to eat when I'm not on the run).  So I slowly fell out of the healthy habit and I'm now hooked on soda again.

I've already started to put the weight back on.  :|
