That figures, DH and I have been on a diet ginger ale thing lately. Five three liters a week. It's so crispy, I love it.

People are drinking less soda. I once drank it with every meal. Now I drink none.

As long as there are teenagers, there will be a market for pop.

Well I am a coffee drinker all day. When I get tired of it I drink lightly sweetened tea. When night time rolls around I drink bottled water.

When I am burned out on those I make fresh fruit drinks.. And when all else fails nothing beats a glass of wine or a wine spritzer. When the occasion calls after a long hard day slaving in the salt mines a frosty cold beer is just what quenches my thrist!

And as a side note gotta have a bubbly mineral water...

Stopped drinking soda some 3 years ago. Water is all I drink, now. I will occasionally mix water with orange juice or cranberry juice.

I buy a case of Fresca in summer and a six pack of diet coke when a friend visits one a year.

I've been slowly breaking myself from sugar products (including soda). I used to drink coke and sprite and energy drinks exclusively. Now I'm down to a few cans of Coke Zero a day and a regular Rockstar every few days. It doesn't help that I have a nearly insatiable sweet tooth, but baby steps are what it takes.

Totally believe it- used to rely on a drink daily up until my mid-20's. Started doing the math and realizing every $2-3 I was shelling out dining out added up really quick and that water really was just as satisfying. Cut it cold turkey when I became pregnant/had kids. Just seeing a visual chart of how much sugar was in it (in comparison to other drinks) made me realize I was consuming empty calories. Now, it just makes more economic sense not to have it in the house and I honestly don't miss it. I may crave a Coke now or then when I have pizza or a burger on occasion, and I may never turn down a root beer float if I went to a nostalgic ice cream place. But overall, it saves so much money not getting it, and I don't honestly miss it.

I once loved Fresca and it reminds me of a good time in my life.

However, artificial sweetners scare me now. If I were to drink any kind of soda pop, I'd drink a lightly sweetened foreign ginger ale. There are some carbonated Italian sodas that are not terribly sweet.

I didn't even know they still made Fresca...
