How many are you drinking per day, do they contain caffeine or any sort of "energy blend"? If so, that could be the reason why you have developed a compulsion to drink them or it could just be that your body has gotten used to the high quantities of sugar, so your body needs it to feel normal.

Salam, I have the same problem. I started drinking diet soda, and then slowly I started with fresh juice, ofc drinking water while eating helped me stop soda. This Ramadan I didn’t have any soda, which was shocking to me xD try sparkling water they r better.

I am almost always drinking water but in the mornings and occasionally afternoons I have some iced coffee or iced tea. I also like juice, particularly orange juice. I cannot drink grapefruit juice anymore because it interferes with one of my prescriptions and that's a bummer because grapefruit juice used to be my favorite. I am not a fan of milk.

I thought about getting a Bang when I went to the store a little while ago but then I remembered this thread and decided that I really didn't need one.

How do you afford all those soda drinks? I buy two diet sodas a week. That is my limit. If I need to save money, I won't drink those two.

I actually used to drink soda quite often, I would even say almost every day. However I obviously knew that was unhealthy and decided eventually to reduce soda consumption. I rarely drink now, or only whenever I go and eat in a restaurant.

But I won't lie, there are times where I crave for soda and don't think about anything except for a good cold bottle of Guaraná. At those moments I just go to the kitchen and drink a cup of water, then return to where I was, and continue thinking about that Guaraná. Aaaagh :furious:!

I know the feeling, I get that way over peach iced tea but I haven't made any in forever because my mom got rid of the pitcher I used to use to make it.

Don't keep any at home. That's the first step. You might probably still end up going to the store and drinking it right there (stopping that will be the next step). 

Make sure you drink 1.5 to 2 liters of water a day, that's very important. Avoid drinking anything else as much as possible.

When you crave sugar, have a fruit (apple, orange etc) instead of something packed with artificial sugar. Try not to exceed two fruits a day.

This is a recipe I tried over the weekend.

Boil some water and add some tablespoons of sugar.

Let it cool

Squeeze out some lemons (you'll work out the right quantity to taste over time).

Mix the two

Add carbonated/sparking water if you like fizzy.

Add kala namak (translates as Himalayan black salt). This is the secret ingredient, it's very potent, only a tiny amount needed, it kills the acidity of the lemons.

You can add mint if you like.

It's fully natural, you can control the quantity of sugar.
