We all know soda isn't good for us, but it's just so hard to give up.

Some ways to kick the habit: Wean yourself off slowly.  Try cutting back to one a day for a few weeks, then try three a week.

Another suggestion: Try adding water to your soda.  That will cut calories and your taste buds won't be expecting as much sweetness.

Speaking of water, before drinking a soda, have some H2O.  Chances are, it will quench your thirst, and you will fill up on the water, rather than a carbonated beverage.

If you crave those bubbles, try a seltzer water and add fruit juice for a little sweetness.
