in hopes of lowering my blood sugar level and getting my teeth healthier I have given up soda and replaced the need for it with vitamin water, which gives you the same boost that some soda does and it's much healthier

Soda is a yucky thing...bad for your teeth and your waistline.  I enjoy the occasional pop but prefer water.

I made a big switch from diet soda to Vitamin Water Zero a few months ago.  I still drink diet soda occasionally, but mostly I try to avoid it.

About 70% of my fluid intake is Dr. Pepper . . . is that a problem?

Ahh Dr. Pepper. I used to drink about 3 big bottles a day, and I even took a bath in it once because I loved it so much. Couldn't bear to drink it now even though it is still head and shoulders above coca cola.

I've been trying to stop drinking soda. I think my mild caffine addiction is putting that off, but this topic will provide inspiration!

I haven't completely given it up but for the most part I have. One thing that helps I find is buying seltzer water and putting some juice or flavored syrup in it to make my own sodas. It tastes good and depending on what you use will be way healthier for you than regular soda.

I gave up regular consumption of soda years ago. I do enjoy one once or twice a month, however. And it's nice because it's a treat due to the infrequency of it. My fluid intake, in order of volume, tends to follow:

1) Water
2) Coffee
3) Adult beverages
                            > About a tie
4) Juices

Good job Bob, like AHD said, "Soda is poison."  I switched from soda to Vitamin Water when I was diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago. Vitamin Water is usually flavored with crystalline fructose, which is just another form of sugar. VM isn't as bad as soda, but it's not really a healthy drink either. I used to check my blood sugar after drinkiing it, and while it didn't spike my blood sugar the way soda did, it still boosted it up there pretty good.  I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer , or act like a know-it-all, or tell you not to drink it, but if you're really interested in controlling your blood sugar then I figured you might want to know. Nowadays I drink it only on occassion.

  But seriously, good job on dropping soda. It's one of the best health decisions a person can make.
