Regular soda has tons of sugar.... Diet soda has Aspartane....
Are you addicted though, like I am?
What do you drink....tea, water, juice, milk..or lots of soda??

I must confess I drink TOO much coffee and really like iced tea and lemonade....preferably homemade.

Trying to like water

Prefer coke over pepsi when I drink it and I have to have ice to enjoy it! (I know I'm strange)

Karen..have you ever tried HARRISBURG DAIRIES ICED TEA.....SOUTHREN BREWED... it is in the words of our kiddos...."Da' Bomb"

No I haven't that is not in our area, the only choices we have for Iced Tea is of course Turkey Hill, than PennDairies, and at certain stores I can still find Pennsupreme tea.

I am allowed one 20 oz. coke per day and I make sure that I get it!!

Other than that, I do drink some juice. (not abig fan of juice)

I drink LOTS of water!! Most days, I drink in excess of a gallon!!

Don't care for Pepsi...too sweet.

Even though DH is a diabetic, he can't have diet soda due to the Aspartame. He was being poisoned by it. He can only drink "diet" stuff if it is sweetened with Splenda. Diet Rite uses Splenda as does a new bottled, flavored water. DH drinks unsweet tea more than anything else when he is home.

Gotta have my coffee in the morning or you DO NOT want to be around me until I do!!!

During the day I drink homemade iced tea sweetened with sugar twin.

Rarely drink soda, but when I do I drink caffeine free Pepsi. If I can get them I will only drink Coke out of the small 6oz bottles (the old fashioned ones), which I prefer over all soda.

For me it's coffee in the morning and diet coke in the afternoon. I like both the lemon and the lime diet coke.

I make green sun tea or regular iced tea. I don't add sugar to it, though.

Sometimes I buy Turkey Hil's Green Tea. It's abit sweet, but sometimes I need it!

I am strictly a tea drinker. I love the Red Rose brand of tea bags. I sweeten it with a mixture of 1/2 cup sugar, 5 packets of Splenda, 5 packets of Equal and 5 packets of Sweet N Low (for 1 gallon of tea). I know it sounds strange, but it is really, really good. No one can tell it's not just sugar. The artificial sweetners work better together instead of just 1 alone. You should try it.

Yes, I am addicted to caffeine free regular PEPSI. I sometimes drink wild cherry coke. I have just decided to limit my intake anddrink water otherwise.

Morning is always coffee and orange juice, and during the day I'm afraid I'm addicted to Caffeine-free Diet Coke, plus a lot of other soft drinks like root beer, orange, Sierra Mist and Dr. Pepper--all diet.

Water is my choice with meals and I usually drink more than one glass. Before bed I have a small glass of soy milk, either plain or chocolate.
