I quit drinking soda seriously about three years ago.

Once I stopped, I found that every time I drank it again, I hated it.

Mostly I drink water, with iced tea in restaurants and at home now and
then. A lot of times I just get water with meals, because the drinks are
grossly overpriced anyway.

Now I get sodas once in awhile and enjoy them, as long as I never have
more than one a day, and not every day.

Also, I generally get specialty stuff from small companies, that have
less carbonation and more flavor than the mainstream stuff like Coke and

I love Stewarts Key Lime.

Also, I find all soft drinks are far too sweet. I wish they'd make most
of them with about half the sugar or sweetner they currently use.

I still like real fountain sodas, but I've always liked that better than
canned and bottled soda.
