    Caffeine headaches only lasted 2-3 days for me. They were vision blurring painful but it stopped.

    I quit drinking Diet Coke 4 or 5 years ago because I was drinking 5 of them a day and the internet told me cutting them out would make my life better. The only thing that’s different is that my meals cost $2-$3 less. I see no other effects.

    I also quit nicotine two years ago. I read so many great things about quitting. The only way it has improved my life is that I don’t have to go outside and smoke during the work day. That’s nice and I’ll never go back. But the immediate effects are negligible

    It took me until the end of my college years to develop a taste for diet soda, but I eventually did thanks to Coke Zero (which was way better than Coke Zero Sugar). Once I did I thought that it was an easy solution to drinking regular soda, but I have had to almost completely give up diet soda. I have found that consuming sucralose or aspartame in large amounts blurs my vision, and consuming even small quantities of either makes me extremely irritable.

    For awhile I drank Zevia, but even when it was on sale I had to pay anywhere from $3.15 to $3.99 for a 6-pack.

    One of my managers at work recently introduced me to flavored seltzer water. I had only ever had LaCroix, which is gross, but he told me to try the Polar, and it is actually really good. I think that it could be a good alternative for someone who wants to give up soda while avoiding sugar and artificial sweeteners.

    Soda Stream has been a pretty good bet on our house. You can get the soda mixes that don’t have any sugars or artificial sweeteners.

    I have a soda stream knock off and love it. I’ve never been much of a soda drinker but I have a serious seltzer addiction. I buy decent quality baking extracts (orange, raspberry, coconut, mango, grapefruit, etc) and poke a tiny hole in the seal so adding a few drops is easier. Otherwise I tend to overdo it.

    +1 for Eagle Rare. It's the best taste to value, I think.

    To be honest, not drinking soda is a goal. I have been working through the soda I have at home, which was Coke Zero and Fresca. Now I’m drinking water and packing lunches for work. I come home feeling like I’m starving.

    I think we talked about this in a WDT back in the Fall - somebody posted a narrated video on YouTube? But, did we talk about that there's a whole documentary now, coming to Netflix this weekend?

    Damn. Adrenaline and being young. It looks like he bounced off the corner of the SUV and rolled on the grass, not concrete. I bet he was hurting later. I bet the SUV also wasn't going very fast considering the sidewalk situation.

    I just watched that trainwreck again. Ow my back. That truck was easily going 30mph on the freaking sidewalk.

    He was probably so jacked up at staring death right in the eye that he didn’t even feel it. Adrenaline will make you run on a broken leg.

    Do you know the story to that? Who just tries to kill three people like that in broad daylight?

    And, the other dude goes groin-face into the park bench, too! Ooof.

    I don't - I saw it on a couple different news sites, but used the YouTube to be able to share it here. Both reports I saw stated that neither the truck driver (duh) nor the teens had come forward or reported the incident to police. Yet. The only interview was with the guy who had the cameras on his house, and he didn't know anything, either.
