I like Coca-Cola. I find it more refreshing than any other beverage.
But it isn't healthy and I think it's best to stop.
Juice really isn't any healthier. Club Soda is too plain.
Anyone else given up soda?
i was a heavy Pepsi user. i weaned myself off from that to Sprite for about six years. then for about 4 years or so i was completely clean. I relapsed last month and drank bottle after bottle of sprite. but now i think i'm off soda for good.
now if you'll excuse me, it's 9pm and i have to go get dressed to get shit-faced drunk...
Tea is meh.
Water is best.
How many cokes do you drink a day?
A pint glass with half a lime's worth of juice, a half teaspoon of sugar and then fill it up with club soda. Tasty refreshing, and not bad for you.
soda water mixed with some Pom also works well.
loose tea is a few magnitude better over bagged tea.
also, quitting cold turkey is best but if you have to a nice way to modify it is to only ever have soda when you're out and about. promise to never keep it in the house...
Fresh Lime Soda! I got addicted when I was in India... it's a bit odd at first, but I came to really love it....
I went from coca cola and my dew code red hourly until I was waking up in the middle of the night needing my caffeine fix. I stopped cold turkey with orange juice and water. To subside the headaches, I ate more fish whose omega 3s & fatty acids are a big help during that caffeine weaning. The OJ helped me have the sweet while in the back of my mind I knew it wouldn't last due to the high acid levels. I was drinking a large simply orange bottle a day for the first couple weeks as I drank water on a schedule to properly hydrate myself. A year + later I'm caffeine free, even chocolate, drinking mostly water with the occasional Jarritos because they are caffeine free made with real sugar. I wish you luck and offer that each day it gets easier. You'll feel much better very soon.
water + lime + cucumber slices
I personally add some fresh basilic leaves to it,
If you find coke is too saccharine, just add pinch or two of salt.
i've been there... i used to be a heavy soda drinker. i never buy soda anymore. I drink it occasionally.
i switched to drinking flavored seltzers. it was fun, though realized they never quenched my thirst! they recommend mixing water with lemons, limes. people also recommend buying a water bottle as scientifically its been found to increase water consumption. but cutting up fruit slices is tedious. Whats been working for me is mixing fruit juices like the cranberry/ strawberry, peach, etc... with water. If you enjoy vitamin water, then this will truly work for you. Vitamins, anti-oxidents mixed with pure hydration! That truly works. Get a Brita, or boil your water with a boiler helps me increase water consumption.
Club mate.. but i think you will find it difficult to track down if you are outside of Germany/Berlin
lots of water and beer is all I ever worry about. don't know how people can keep throwing money at soft drinks
Water or club soda with lemon. The lemon helps to detox your body and it's actually tasty.
I agree with fourth ^^^^
juice not healthy? that shit cray.. get a juicer yo!
Soda water + bitters.
