Less Soda...More Water

Jeffery over at Personal Finance Advice has post today entitled "How Water Saved Me $1000 A Year" about his quest to stop drinking so much soda and replace it with (presumably) free water. This post really hit home with me, as anyone that knows me will tell you that I am probably addicted to soda. I love the taste, the carbonation, and the fact that it is fairly cheap compared to many other drinks (milk, juice, and beer are all more expensive).

I probably won't stop drinking soda all together, but I would like to cut down on the amount that I am currently drinking. I won't stop just because of money, that is just a bonus...I would like to stop because it is not good for me to drink. It rots my teeth and makes my stomach very acidic, that seems like a better reason to stop than just the cost.

I was in the same boat years ago. I had no intention of switching to water, but I went instead for iced tea made from those big jugs of powdered mixes. Much cheaper than soda, and it mentally and physically prepared me for the jump to mostly water that I eventually decided to make.

I started doing the same thing as Nick this year. I buy my Fit&Active iced tea at Aldi for a few pennies a glass. That's a lot better than the $0.16/can for pop. And, it doesn't have caffeine or calories!

And another reason.. My wife just told one of our good friends that he looked like he lost some weight. He responded, "Yeah, 10lbs... all I did was switch from soda to water."

I always stayed away from iced tea because I thought that it had caffeine. Maybe I will start drinking that.
