I know its not a good thing but I'm addicted to soda. I've learned to drink less soda so its not so bad anymore. Lets talk about soda.

Pretty sure a blood chemistry analysis would turn up a significant measurement of Diet Mountain Dew.  Love the stuff.

Not so big on the colas.

I love pop.  I drink Squirt, Sun Drop, and Mountain Dew the most.  If I drink a cola, I prefer Coke.

I'm also a root beer aficionado.

I used to drink a ton of pop, but now I drink unsweetened ice tea and I try and limit myself to 1 or 2 cans a day.

I don't drink soda. It's bad for you, so I try not to drink it. I haven't had one in months.

The only soda I drink is Diet Coke (or Diet Pepsi). I mostly drink it just for the taste but I also try to avoid sodas with sugar. When I go to restaurants I drink 2-3 glasses but at home I try to avoid drinking it as much as possible.

The only soda I will occasionally drink (VERY occasionally) is ginger ale, and only when it's diluted with Captain Morgan. smile.gif

Otherwise, I don't drink soda.

I knew "Pop vs Soda" would come up eventually.  smile.gif

I'm glad to see it's not just us New Englanders that call it "Soda".

Pepsi is generally my soda of choice.  I really like Cherry Pepsi and Cherry Coke, but they're usually expensive enough that I just stick with regular Pepsi.

I've tried to cut down over the years, but quitting soda has been harder for me than quitting cigarettes.  Usually the best I can manage is to leave a case in my cubicle at work and drink 2-4 during the workday.  If I keep any at home, I'll drink another 2-4 more after work, plus have 1 during the long commute the next morning.

Everyone can call it what ever they want, in the end we are all still refering to the same thing.
