Stop drinking soda. It will be the best decision you’ve made in a long time, guaranteed. Here’s how you can do it.
When you drink soda, you are, more often than not, a soda drinker.That’s because both the sugar and the caffeine in soda are addictive substances, and caffeine is actually a drug.

Recent results of a study of patients at four different health centers prove how drinking soda linked to other lifestyle factors.
And quitting anything like that (smoking, soda, alcohol) is an uphill battle. But you can do it. Many people recommend quitting cold turkey: making the this-moment-right-here-right-now-as-we-speak-immediately-and-forevermore choice to never take a sip of soda again. If you can do that, do.
It’s likely also beneficial to speak with your doctor about the process. If he or she doesn’t ask, you can bring it up at your next appointment.
No matter how you choose to stop drinking soda, these tips should help.
