    Mountain dew has more sugar than coke.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle
    At the expense of the American dream, American dream

    I think one reason I never got hooked on soda was that before aspartame, 0 calorie soda was disgusting. Also, back in my really strict calorie counting days, I once noticed that a can (12 oz) of soda had 150 calories. Since I knew that there weren't any nutrients, and I knew that a teaspoon of sugar had about 16 calories, it wasn't hard to see what soda really was - carbonated sugar water - and 9+ teaspoons of sugar to boot. It just seemed like a waste of my money.

    I was CONVINCED sugar was almost everything the human body needed to run well. Sugar, a flintstone vitamin, and noodles. Thought I was covered.

    Almost none. Didn't grow up with it. Never developed a taste for it once I was exposed to it. Soda burns my throat. Ick.

    Might be a generational thing. I grew up in the three squares, "don't ruin your appetite with candy," era.

    No, my parents were just abjectly clueless - bottom of the barrel poverty, believe in ghosts, etc.

    Never had the habit. When I was a kid, i'd occasionally drink Diet coke because it wasn't as sweet as the others, but then I just stopped liking the taste whatsoever.

    Sometimes as a kid, a 12 pack of pepsi a day sometimes...sometimes room temp. No 24 packs back then. As an adult, not as much, but often had a coke at hand, but usually diet.

    2 liters/day? Weak. I was easily downing a cube (24pk) a day of dew.

    Gone since 1984 when I developed symptoms of a brain tumor... all clear, and caused by Aspartame (1-2 cans/day). I find the taste of soda so unappealing; real sugar, HFCS or other.

    Congratulations to all of you that have quit, and "keep trying" to all of you that are still working on quitting.
