How to Quit Soda

The sugary rush, the pleasant burn of the bubbles, a cold soda can be the most wonderful thing – it’s addictive.
As good as soda tastes, research has shown that it’s terrible for your body. Full of sugar, soda is all empty calories. Soda consumption has been linked to tooth decay and diabetes, and bone thinning. That applies to diet sodas as well.

Here are some handy tips to help you break the soda addiction:

Give yourself a timeframe
The soda addiction is hard to ditch. It might seem too daunting to say “I’m going to give this up forever”. Give yourself a short-term goal. Try going soda-free for two weeks or a month; it’s easier to keep your resolve if you have a timeline. At the end of it, you might not even feel like going back to it.

Enlist a friend
Humans are social beings and it can make things a little easier if you and a fellow soda addict decide to quit together. You can encourage each other to stick with it.

Get your fizz fix elsewhere
Sometimes the call of the fizz is strong. Soda isn’t the only way to answer it though, try alternatives such as seltzer, soda water or sparkling mineral water.

Drink a glass of water
Whenever you’re craving soda, grab a big glass of ice cold water and fill up on that first. Chances are that your craving will go away.

Avoid triggers
Do you find yourself grabbing a bottle of soda whenever you’re next to that vending machine at work? Avoid it entirely if possible. Skirt the soda aisle at the supermarket, if you tend to crave soda with certain foods, go for alternatives when dining.

Bring your own bottle
Carry a reusable water bottle with you whenever you’re out. Fill it with plain water or spruced-up water with lemon, cucumber or fruits. This way you won’t have an excuse to buy soda since you’ve brought your drink with you.
