I'm 25 now and for the past 3 years or so I can't bring myself to drink a 12oz can of soda.  I can only drink at most 1/2 and then I get sick of it.  Same with Powerade or Gatorade, I have to water it down.  I guess that's just me getting old, I remember I used to eat candy a lot too, but it just doesn't do it for me.  Anyone else experience the same thing?

If I'm craving a sweet drink I'll make some Crystal Light here and there, but just skim milk, soy milk, and water really.  A cup of juice here and there as well.

I easily could and still do on occasion. Been trying hard to limit my liquids to water, fruit juices, gatorade, etc. Trying to stay away from drinks with high fructose corn syrup and a lot of sugar.

i cant. i have to resort to getting iced tea when im "fast fooding" and i dont even really like that. once in a while i'll take some sprite like a shot just clear the taste of my mouth when im at a potluck or somehting and theres nothing else. the only time i drink coke nowadays is in a jack and coke lol.

and yea the fizz/carbonation if is weird when you havent had it for so long

I haven't had soda for years now, and I haven't looked back since. I gave it up for Lent one season when I was younger and never looked back.

Water (dominant), Orange Juice, and Milk is all I need (not including alcohol).

I rarely drink soda now. I only drink iced tea, water and juice.

Occasionally I'll get a coke but only if I don't see anything else I want.

i stopped drinking soda in the 10th grade i dont really know why but i think its cause the rest of my fam were heavy soda drinkers and i would drink but being in sports and trying to stay in shape i could notice how nasty it made me feel internally ...yes it taste good, nice good rush from the sugar, but i could get that from juice or i normally stick to water and milk ... =]

I never drink soda. Never drank it growing up, so now whenever I go out to eat I always get water. I can't stand the sweetness and carbonation of soda.

I like gatorade though, same with powerade, I don't drink it that often but I like it a lot.

I hate sweet drinks so I barely drink sodas or juices (by themselves). All I drink is water and coffee on a daily basis basis.

I'll have the occasional vodka + soda or juice though (but since I hate sweet drinks, its usually with ginger ale, tonic, or apple juice).

Never had a problem with sodas/sugary drinks. Just have to stay away from alcohol.
