I've never been addicted to sodas but I have cut them out before. Right now I have one diet coke in the morning on weekdays with my breakfast. I probably won't buy another pack next week. Carbonated water is great. I drink it plain.
"Things are as they are. Looking out into it the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations." - Alan Watts
