I have a serious addiction to Mt Dew, i dont know if i could give it up. I like to tell myself that it's at least not as bad because i only drink one glass of it a day and I can usually make it last for a long time. I know that's grasping at straws here, but it makes me feel better.
That's like a bath tub of soda per day.
With my lifestyle and intake of crap into my boday, no one would mistake me for a saint, but it really may be time to start cutting down a little.
How do you feel all day? Can you sleep at night? Sounds expensive also.
Soda? Pop?! My husband is from Ohio and I've told him over and over that everything is called 'coke' down here in the Bluegrass state. haha. Anyway, I'm not much of a carbonated beverage drinker, but I've had my share of 'Big Red' and 'A&W Root Beer'. My drink of choice is sweet iced tea though. Funny how in other parts of the country, they look at you weird if you order sweet iced tea. I guess they either drink it unsweetened or hot. What's up with that?
Pop? I like a good Barley pop. Does that count?
I don't drink it much any more, but when I used to have a hankering for something cold, Vernor's Ginger Ale, cream soda, a good root beer, and Classic Coke hit the spot.
But that's all fat pop and even when I drink pop, I don't drink fat pop any more. My wife stocks Diet Rite white grape and raspberry which isn't too bad. I'll have one on the weekend.
I just drink water mostly nowadays.
Pay attention to the open sky
You're the type that really has to watch for dental ramifications. Too many carbonated beverages is murder on teeth. These drinks are fizzed with carbonic acid and the low PH dissolves teeth.
I know the type. These folks need a pop in the morning to wake up. They also need one when driving a car. Another one while in the cubicle or while studying (if a student). Another one on the drive home. Another one when they get home as a treat. Another one with dinner and before long they've had 6 or 7 for the day. Their mouth never has a chance to buffer that acid. It stays in an acidic state all day long.
My suggestion: You're an adult. Drink an adult beverage. Drink coffee, tea during the day, beer at night! Drink pop only on weekends or on occasion with a meal. Much easier on your teeth.
My dentist once told me that if I was going to drink a Coke (soda...pop...whatever) that I should always drink it with a straw. That way the stuff hits the roof of your mouth & not your teeth.
