Up until recently I've been dealing with a Coke addiction, Coca-Cola that is. I was drinking upwards of 96 oz. a day. On may days it was easily a gallon or more. After having all the cavities in my mouth fixed and the doctor telling me that this is likely the main reason my cholesterol is so high I stopped drinking it cold turkey. I've tried water, iced green tea, diet sodas, etc. I'm just not pulling it off. I still haven't had a Coke in over 2 weeks but I've found the past few days I've started replacing the Coke with Gatorade. I know, I know. Not an ideal trade off but it does have half the sugars, some of which is dextrose, and no HFCS. Again, I know I'm just trying to justify my choice. I'd like to drop the sugary drinks altogether.
I guess my question is, what do other's drink when you're craving something a little sweeter than tea or water?
