Would it be harder for you to live without soda or coffee?

Well for me, this is easy! I don't care for the taste of coffee, thus I rarely drink it. I think about all sodas (not diet) taste better than coffee. So, I wouldn't have a problem living without coffee.

It would be easy for me for both because I hardly drink either of them. I drink water,tea and juice mostly.

Coffee for me...hands down. I'm not much of a soda drinker, but can't survive without my coffee. When the weather is hot then iced tea is my choice, but iced coffee or latte is still better than that.

To tell you the truth I cut off coffee altogether a while back. And I recently decided not to drink as muck soda either. I get an occasional craving for a Coke but other than that all I pretty much drink now is water.

I think either one would be a problem for me. I just get into moods where I have to have coffee, and others where I have to have a Dr. Pepper. I like both but try to stay away from alot of either or I can't sleep/.

I couldnt live without either ! My body would go into shock and shut down if I had to give one up...lol If I had to choose though it would have to be coffee since I would still be gettin my caffeine from my pepsi the rest of the day.

Not at all.I drink Coffee nowadays every morning.But I don't quite prefer it.Maybe because the Coffee Powder that is available at our place isn't upto the mark.Nevertheless I would have no problems stopping drinking Coffee.Ditto with Soda.In fact I don't quite like it as well.

For me coffee. It is how I start my day. I only have soda in the afternoon or at dinner. And not everyday. Plus the coffee helps me manage migraines.

I would definitely miss the coffee more than the soda. I just recently cut way back on the soda consumption. I am down to maybe a couple a week. That is pretty good because I was drinking about 2 or more per day. Most of the time I drink coffee in the morning but will sometimes drink coffee in the afternoon and evening. Like you I prefer regular sodas to the diet ones. I don't care for the taste or the artificial sweetners in them.

Two a week is pretty good. I don't know if I could or would want to do that.

I would not be a problem for me. I rarely drink coffee and soda. I prefer drinking plain water even on restaurants.

When I was younger, I used to drink sodas almost in every meal but didn't care much for coffee. Eventually, I was able to cut soda in my diet and embraced coffee. Though I read that coffee has some healthy benefits and I don't feel bad having it every morning. I only drink a cup though. I think I can live without soda. I'm not sure about coffee anymore because if I missed drinking it, I always get a headache.

I could live without both to be truthful. But I think I like a few of my sodas too much to let them go. And my partner has gotten me hooked on Sheetz's frozen mocha's. lol So I don't think I could get rid of those.

Between the two of us, we have the problem licked. You can take care of the soda while I take care of the coffee. I drink a lot of coffee and I do mean a lot. I can't say the same for soda although I do enjoy a glass once in a while. Coffee on the other hand is my other passion, the first one being green tea.

I can due without soda and coffee but i would prefer not too. I drink coffee everyday and that is like a boost that is needed in the morning to get started and to keep going during the course of the day. Soda i can drink or not drink but water is much more needed than soda or coffee. Have a nice one.

Yeah, I'd prefer not to go without soda for an extended period of time.

I agree with you, i rarely drink coffee because i dislike the taste most of the time. I really enjoy soda's(not diet) but i don't drink it often. I usually drink fruit drinks or fruit-flavored fizzy drinks. If your talking about only soda brands(pepsi, coke, etc.) then i could live without it. If your referring all fizzy drinks, i could not live without it because i really enjoy drinking certain drinks with the food i eat(i cannot eat food without a drink). If your also talking about water, obviously everyone would die without water.

Any kind of soda: Mountain Dew, Vault, Sunkist, Ruby Red Squirt, etc. Well, I know I'd hate to live in a world without Coke and Pepsi!

I don't drink that much soda but I drink coffee like it water... When my girl-friend & I first met, she could believe how much coffee I drank... Do you ever smell like the food you eat? People even told me I smell like coffee... I drink coffee with my meals... People actually look at me funny when we go out to eat...

It would definitely be harder for me to live without coffee. I already live without soda (I don't like the stuff to begin with) so for me that is no problem. I love my coffee way too much to live without it. I'm not addicted to caffeine, I just love he taste of coee.
