    Drinks

    What do you drink? I used to drink Diet Pepsi almost 100% of the time. I never drank water and only had milk on my cereal. I then spent a week in the hospital. The pop machine in the commons room had just been taken out 2 days before I was admitted. My only option after that; water. I was in the psych ward, so I cried and cried and cried. I think I got over the headaches of caffeine withdrawal, because my head hurt from all the crying. lol Now I drink water 90% of the time, some sweet tea the other.

    How about you? What's your beverage of choice?

    I try to drink more water. my Sister drinks it like she's a fish! i tend to drink tea. either Sun tea or Snapple i buy at the store. also cranberry juice and a bit of orange juice.
    sodas are bad for us. and yes you had withdrawal from them. Once in awhile i may get a soda if i buy fast food somewhere. But i dont really miss them now. so don't get back on them. good for you in your change. keep it up!!!

    Oh I have a big time addiction to Diet Pepsi.. I have three can down before 9 AM... I have been trying to slowing reduce my consumption . Caffeine withdrawl is painfull the headaches are just brutal. Congradulations on kicking the habit... I really know what you must have gone through.

    Unfortunately I'm a coke fan(atic)....regular, NO diet, in a chilled glass, poured slowly down the side with one large piece of ice. I've gone on the wagon several times over this stuff, but it never seems to take! I drink less than 2 a day, though.
    I drink iced tea with lemon and LOTS of ice, sweetened or not, and water as often as I can make myself do so.
    Also beer or gin and tonic with lemon/lime occasionally.

    I used to drink tea all day every day... hot in the morning and iced in the afternoon in the hot weather. I recently heard/read that the caffeine when eating causes weight gain, so after my two morning cups of tea, I switch to cold water from the fridge.

    I am mainly a hot tea drinker. If it's too hot for tea, mainly water. I occasionally drink a soda but not often. I figure I'd rather eat my calories than drink them.

    I drink mostly iced tea, occasionally a Coke Zero. Water when I'm feeling I should be good. In the winter hot Chai tea. I love the spices.

    I drink mostly water and tea (hot or cold). Juice would be third, in line. Occasionally, I'll have a cup of coffee or a nutritional beverage. Haven't had soda/pop, in ages.

    Just read the post above mine, which reminded me of a yummy treat, I sometimes have! Hot chocolate, with a splash of coconut rum! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!

    Diet Coke is my guilty pleasure. Yes, I know it isn't good for me. I can barely tolerate most liquids including the water here which is really very good. I drink some coffee in the a.m. and some green tea in the pm. And milk on my cereal. I eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies and I think I must be getting hydration from them.

    mostly water with meals, no milk, no soda. I like unsweetened, flavored seltzer half and half with fruit juice. Soda is too darn sweet!! 10 teaspoons of sugar per can!! wow. Can't stand the taste of diet soda.

    We are blessed to have wonderful well water here on our land. Best I have ever tasted.

    My favorite drink is iced tea, drink it year round. If I do have a soda it is usually diet Dr. Pepper.
    Don't like to drink water. For breakfast I have to have milk (ice cold).

    Sparkling water (soda water) is my drink of choice. I buy the big bottles and have one by the bed, one in the sewing room, one in the car, one at my desk... my DH cant understand why I dont keep it in the fridge, but I like it at room temperature.
    In addition to that, I generally have a milky coffee with breakfast and, where I used to have a beer after work, I try to, most days, have a herbal tea instead. (and yes I notice it on my wasitline) At parties I love sparkling white wine :-)
    I never ever drink Coke or Fanta or similar things with heaps of sugar because I believe that an excess of refined sugar is very very unhealthy and that our bodies did not evolve to deal with that on an ongoing basis. I think that lots of the modern diseases we are seeing now will in time be shown to be caused at least in part by all the sugar we consume. Even juice is not something I would have undiluted- one class of apple juice has the sugar of six apples, and none of the fibre. Most of us could not even swallow six apples, yet we drink the juice and think it is great.....

    As someone else said, I have a feeling that diet versions of the popular drinks will be proven in time to have more bad stuff in them than we understand now. I have spent time being addicted to Coke Zero, but I am free of it now and don't even like the taste anymore, thankfully.

    Other than fabric, my one addiction (& yes, I do mean addiction)? Dr. Pepper. Not diet... the hard stuff... LOL! In a can... not ice cold but not room temp either (I used to have a friend who drank only room temp Pepsi... ugh!). I used to drink nothing but Pepsi but about 20 years ago I switched over to DP & now that's it. I try to force myself to drink some water everyday but my weaknees is my pop. I've tried to quit it but the headaches are just too brutal. Does my family give me static about my addiction? All the time. But I'm a grown-up woman & I'm fully aware of what I'm doing. Now, I see that my canis empty, so if you'll excuse me...

    3 mugs of cafe latte in the morning then countless cups of strong white tea (no sugar) the rest of the day....rarely drink plain water, and pepsi (diet) 1 every couple of days.

    Water and milk mostly and sometimes a non- caffeine drink which is similar to coffee in taste. Caffeine, fruit juice, soft drinks (even the diet variety) are not good for diabetes control.

    Hot tea with milk and Sweet n' Low if I'm having anything to eat or it's cold out. Unrefrigerated bottled water with a Snapple Lemon Tea 'Singles to go' in it when I want something cold or if I'm out in the car looking for yard sales. I hate water without any flavoring in it.

    I gave up soda and artificial sweeteners four years ago. Now, I drink two cups of latte (made with decaf coffee and whole, non-homogenized milk) almost ever day in the morning. I don't miss the caffeine, just like the flavor of coffee. Then I drink either water (a glass by the bed, the sewing machine, etc) or herbal teas made typically with herbs I've grown or gathered wild. I try not to use sugar, especially the overprocessed white sugar that is everywhere. If I need a sweetener (rarely), I'll use honey.

    I totally agree. I still miss mine and it's been since March. Manufacturers have certainly figured out how to keep people buying it.
