    Why not drink coffee then, as it's healthier than the sugary drinks, if it's just for the caffeine?
    I can't stand the taste of coffee
    Plus if you're out and about coffee on the high street is far from healthy
    And I drink the diet versions of Coke & Pepsi - no sugar!!

    The diet versions have even more artificial sweeteners and additives in, which are just as bad as sugar, if not pretty much sugar anyway. I'm sure there is actual sugar in diet versions or they just wouldn't be able to be made; maybe it's not called sugar, doesn't mean it's not in there anyway.

    I have them every once in a few months. They trigger my migraines. Which is such a pity since I have a bottle of Club Orange rock shandy in the fridge from home and I really want it. :cry2:

    If you drink a 500ml bottle (not a can) you've had about 54g sugar - some of the Starbucks Grande drinks ~450 ml contain 60g+! This was actually blew up in the news before xmas, and *so* many people were shocked by it..

    Of course, depends what you order & if you go for coke/diet/zero/life, etc., as to which is worse for you. And Pepsi at least contains aspartame, etc.

    But it's definitely worth noting
    Yeah my bad. I should have looked it up.

    Those numbers are ****ing insane! Never going Costa either.

    Apologies

    twice a week I think. And why? Maybe the reason is that I like them, their taste

    Very infrequently, every few months or so. Small bottle of coke, if I fancy a brandy, and I'm on the booze at the time (usually teetotal). Dr.Pepper or Irn Bru with the occasional once monthly take away. Otherwise I stear clear. 30 teaspoons of sugar per can, not recommended on a regular basis!

    Of course I've drank fizzy drinks before, but I haven't for years now. The studies about weight gain, tooth decay and addiction just stop me ever thinking about drinking them. Every day I see people drinking one, two, three or more fizzy drinks, and I don't understand why, after the evidence has been so clearly presented, that so many people still drink them and so frequently.

    Why do you drink them and how often? I see them as a health pollutant that's just not worth consuming and honestly, I don't like the taste of them anyway.
    One could argue that drinking alcohol as regularly as you do is far more harmful than drinking fizzy drinks. Liver Cirrhosis. Increase in blood pressure --> Increase in risk of suffering from heart disease/stroke. The list goes on.

    One could argue that I exaggerated how regularly I drink alcohol because I was incredibly drunk and upset when I made that thread. I don't actually drink that much but being drunk I was feeling sorry for myself and wanted a response; I didn't want the thread to be ignored at the time. I know all about the harm alcohol can do, thank you for your concern.
