Thanks for posting that, I try to avoid making any impact on the world around me in any way so this is embarrassing (lol).

Yep, still "clean". Not even drinking a lot of lemonade any more. Generally drink water all day, and at work a coffee in the morning and one in the afternoon. There is some sugar / creamer in both. And then my treat in the evening is a glass of chocolate milk. I don't crave soda at all now and no headaches on caffeine-free days. I also am very aware if I am consuming too much sugar which of course soda has a lot of.

Neat to hear about people being able to quit soda!  I have been drinking club soda and root beer stevia drops (from amazon) for a long time now and am soooo happy about this. Sometimes, I also use vanilla cream steavia, which tastes like a cream soda.

I have to wonder if the soda addiction is a sugar addiction? I recently watched this movie and it really opened my eyes to how much sugar is in my diet! I did the 10 day challenge at the end of the video and I can't CAN'T believe how much better I feel! I'm also down 2 lb.

I didn't read through the thread, but I can tell you what worked awesome for me. Seltzer. Sugar free, calorie free, flavored, carbonated water.  I'm totally hooked on it now and there are no negatives to drinking it. And it is dirt cheap.

STOP IT! Just stop it. Stop it.
 Reminded me of the SNL skit with Bob Newhart (haven't read the whole thread - so someone may have brought this up already).
