    I can't. Or so I thought 2 months ago when I was drinking soda like water. (at least once a day). But I changed my diet and started eating healthier, (nomore fast foods, junk foods, NO SODA, etc). I haven't touched soda since then until this date. Most of the time I just drink water, sometimes coffee withskim milk and a splenda if I have to study, and redbull like once in a blue moon when I don't have coffee to study.

    I mean it's not too hard, I never thought I could do it, but seeing how bad it is for you and stuff it really isn't too bad once you actually quit. Ihaven't cheated with diet soda or anything like that either cause I heard that stuff is still bad for you anyway. So guys stop drinking junk and make theswitch, you can lose 15 pounds a year by avoiding soda. [​IMG]

    Haven't drank soda in over two years [​IMG][​IMG]. Soda is worthless, just a bunch of sugar and calories.....

    i actually could. the only time i get a pop is when i go out to dinner.
    and even then, i'd be able to do without it.

    I gave up soda almost 5 years ago. It's not too hard to do.

    I'm not sure. I'm just so used to it. And if I did, the alternative I'd drink would probably be just as bad....

    Soda can take paint off a car and is sometimes used to flush transmissions, just imagine what it is doing to the lining of your stomach.

    With ease.

    I gave up soda for Lent last year, and after Lent season, I just never drank it again. I've had it on occasion, but when I do have it, it's honestly byaccident (as ludicrous as that sounds).

    Water all day [​IMG]
