On 1 Jan I completely quit soda and went from 2-3 classes of caffeinated tea a day to one. It's amazing how much that has improved my state of mind throughout the day. Everything is so much clearer and focus isn't a lost goal.
Those who know me know how long it took me to quit soda too. It really has been a physical addition for years. Really glad I'm finally making progress with that one.
@mur2501 Yep. Grew up on cola. There were times when I went through a 24-can-case in a day. No matter how much I've tried I've just never been able to shake it. Was down to 1 20oz bottle most days over the last 3-4 years and seem to finally be past that
Ohh coca cola, I thought you meant plain carbonated water by soda.
We don't even get coca cola in my town
@mur2501 Oh, gotcha. Yeah, I'm in the US and, especially when I was younger, Coke and Pepsi were everywhere. It's taken a very long time to break that habit.
Yup I know, your lives are based upon coke, pepsi, McDonald's, dominos and stuffs 🙃
In terms of soda, I like (as well as others here) Sprite.
@mur2501 It's always amazing to me how, as a kid, Coke and Pepsi were common, fast food was gourmet and everthing at home, as a middle class white kid, was re-heated frozen food. Somewhere around 2000 many here "discovered" more natural foods and acted like they invented nature. I will say I'm fortunate to eat much better today but so many are still stuck with very poor diets and no chance of changing that.
@mur2501 Until I started traveling outside of the US I didn't understand that. Now I just shake my head at so much of it.
America is a wonderful weird and upside-down world living just in itself without ever knowing about outside world.
