Yes, occasionally. Mountain Dew in all derivations is an evil vice.

I can't remember the last time I had a soda. I wouldn't drink it even if it's offered to me for free.

No one can afford it. Sometimes Pepsi and Coke are on sale for $1 for a 2-liter bottle but when it is over that it stays on the shelf when I'm shopping.
Also, Pepsi and Coke are seeing that the consumer wants healthier alternatives to soda pop and have come out with their own healthful beverages.

I had to stop drinking tea, coffee, soda because I'm having real bad GERD problems now.

Good, I'm glad to hear it. Soda is nothing but empty calories (even the diet or calorie free sodas are no good with there acidic nature). I think the only way soda companies will survive in the future is if they switch to healthy drinks. But there is already a large market for that, so I would expect to see a decrease in sales for them and an increase for the smaller healthy drink companies. Things like coconut water, spring water, perrier/san pelligrino, etc will all see increases I believe.

Not just empty calories.

How nice of coke/pepsi to remove flame retardant ingredient from its products (ie, Gatorade / Powerade, Mountain Dew + others).

If they wanted to get ALL of the fire retardant out of the product, they would have to remove ALL of the dihydrogen oxide.
