Been a soda drinker all my life. Mt. Dew and Pepsi mainly. I don't do coffee. I can do tea, and do, and also will get that instead of soda a lot of places, and just get unsweet with a little added sweet tea (it is the South!). But tea can be so variable so many places and some of it just isn't that good. I can do water OK, but you know, where's the fun in that. I was just reading where people who are trying to stop drinking actually use things like La Croix because of all the sensations they're used to - the can, the crack of the can, the carbonation, the cold can in your hand - all that is covered, without the alcohol. So it's not going "cold turkey" so to speak, but getting rid of the bad stuff without sacrificing a lot of the other things that aren't so harmful. So I'm thinking, rather than trying to go off the soda, and just make the drastic change to plain unsweetened, unflavored water, these carbonated waters (or something similar) might be a better middle ground with the health benefits of water, but keeping the psychological aspects of "cracking open a soda". I've tried "cold turkey" before and been somewhat successful - made it 6 months or so. But it's hard not to come back. I've been on 1 a day, 1 every other day, and things like that, but I think I need something else to substitute for it, rather than water or tea. Anyone had any similar experiences and willing to offer advice?
