    People don't drink soda, diet or full sugar, for it's health benfits lol. I simply choose diet because if I'm gonna drink calories, it better be alcoholic.

    I hear that. I seldom drink alcohol (unless we're talking a quarter-shot glass of wine for religious reasons, and even then I'd prefer grape juice). But when I'm out with friends, I will sometimes get a mulled cider at Timothy's, which is worth every one of its scrumptious 230 calories.

    I'ma big fan of diet Dr. Pepper and Southern Comfort. Diet Canada Dry and some whiskey is also very nice. Diet tonic and gin is always a crowd pleaser. And who could forget Diet Coke and rum?!?!

    Hmmm, I have been drinking diet pop since I was a teenager.
    Wonder why it is that I am still here (67 in 3 months) and still drinking diet pop every day.

    You've obviously been preserved. :wink:

    Soda is terrible. Simple.

    What makes you say that?!?

    Sipping on my Diet Dr Pepper with my lunch right now. Tastes pretty delicious, actually.

    I love Fanta zero it helps me to keep my cravings for sweet stuff and/or alcoholic drinks at bay . At moment I am just counting the kcal not yet eating healthy all the time , 1 step for time! I have 20 kg to loose i.e. 7 stones

    Same. Love me some DDP with my lunch. I'm also another one who has been drinking diet soda since she was a teen. Still going strong at 32, and I lost all my weight while drinking diet sodas too. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
