Ever since I started drinking water I dont have the craving for sodas or juices anymore  LOL

I drink one cup of coffee in the morning and the rest of the day its lemon water. Or if I need some energy while Im at work ill drink those V8 natural energy drinks

My new favorite concoction is the Dasani strawberry flavored water and add a lemon to it. Ugh omg... its so good. Tastes like juice!

I have a sweet tea addiction too. I was doing good with drinking just water for about 2 months. And then I went out to eat and ordered a shirley temple and it all went downhill from there. Now I am trying to get back. I had gestational diabetes while I was pregnant and my doc forbid me to drink sweet tea. I thought that I would just die without it but it wasn't so bad. So I know that I can stop.

I've tried everything and nothing has helped me kick the habit.

Maybe I just need to accept it as my vice? And let go of thinking that it's a bad thing.

I'm not suffering because of it but I don't like the feeling of not being able to conquer it either.

*contemplates as I drink my sweet tea*

Artificial sugars make me sick and they taste nasty. Honey, agave, brown rice syrup, and all those alternatives are just other forms of sugar that don't taste as good as the real thing.

Now I drink coffee with milk, no sugar, and occasionally red wine (which has a lot of sugar). Once you get your body used to no having so much sugar the sweet drinks you like now will become to sweet and you most likely won't want them

I feel this way about soda.  I have to crave a soda to drink one and i normally cannot take more than a couple sips.  Between water and coffee I don't really drink anything else
