How do I overcome an addiction to soda?
Ok this sounds ridiculous I know, but I am addicted to soda. Seriously, I don't care what type it is, as long as I have it at all times, I'll be good. If I don't have it, I get really moody and get bad head aches. I think the reason why I'm so addicted to it is because its just what I grew up with it. My parents never really was like "You shouldn't drink a lot of soda, its bad for you." We just always had it around, and in the fridge at all times. Plus, because its not alcohol or cigarettes, I just sort of was never worried about it. I had it in my mind that since its not like any of those things, then its ok to drink it. I never thought "Oh this is really bad for me, I shouldn't be drinking so much." I've just never liked drinking water (and honestly, I still don't like drinking water, even though I know its vital for good health), its always been soda. I've never had weight problems (which I think is another reason that I've never been worried about it), but I am worried about future health problems, especially involving my kidneys. How do I ween my self off from it? I feel like a drug addict when I'm drinking soda now! I
