I prefer to drink soft drinks over water. Especially an iced cold coca-cola. But what happens is that my stomach gets bigger, it hurts my nose when I burp and it made me fat. So whenever I feel so hot, I now crave for iced cold water.

I only drink water. When I drink water I don't get thirsty. Water is the best drink we can drink. Soft drinks and coffee are unnatural and unhealthy, as far as I'm concerned. Drink water, drink life!

I like what you mentioned, "Drink water, drink life." Water is the only drink that can quench our thirst even just little of it than drinking lots of soft drinks. It's very healthy because our body needs it to cleans impurities and toxins. We need water in order to live longer and healthy. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I have limited money so I cant buy soft drinks all the time. I can drink a liter of coke in one day so I usually fast for more than three days before drinking coke again. I know water is healthier but I get my mind clear when I drink coke.

Well having limited money does good on you because it prevents you from drinking lots of soft drink that's not good for health. Water is always best to us, although soft drinks and other beverages taste real good. Water is pure and gift from God that's why its the only one who can satisfy our thirst. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Yeah, soft drink is high in calorie, its phosphoric and high in sugar, which can affect our health, especially if taken often. To drink a glass of soft drink needs to drink 2-3 glass of water in order to keep healthy, because water will cleans our body. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I only drink about one cup of coffee a day and not every day. i only have soda once in a while. I really prefer water with some lemon juice in it. Two or three sodas a day can really put the with on a person. If a person usually drinks two or more sodas a day and they stop they can lose up to 5 pounds in a years time just cutting back on the sodas. those diet sodas are higher in salt content and still can put the weight on you.

Yeah soft drink and diet soda were have the same effect. Those can make one gain weight and suffered other diseases. It's nice to hear that you prefer water because it will makes you more healthier and you need it each day. Soft drink,diet soda,coffee and tea can make one dehydrated. Water is the best and the solution to keep one hydrated. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

water is obviously way better for you but soft drinks taste so amazing that its hard to turn down one for the other. When im thirsty i try to drink water because i know the caffeine and sugar in soda dehydrate you more. I really like flavored water because then it tastes better and still decently healthy for you.

Yeah, soft drinks can be real addicted, especially when you learn to have it after every meal. Its hard for you tor resist, because it doesn't makes you feel full and satiated. I have known a friend who's addicted with soft drink and she become fat and earlier found that she's diabetic. That's too bad for her because she's still young and full of life.

Wow! you must be real healthy person because you often drink water and you make it as a habit to drink plenty of it each day. I love drinking water too, although there are times when I have to drink little because of too much work and need to avoid going to the comfort room to save time.

For me, drinking water is the best solution to thirsty. I feel ever thirsty when I drink the soft drink or coffee. Water is more natural and no other substances are added (soft drinks get some other chemicals) Besides, it is more heavier to drink water since it can refill your water loss. Water is the best!

Yeah, water is always the best solution for thirst. No other beverages can satisfy ones thirst no matter how many you glass you drink. Water is safe and no side effects compared to soft drinks. Drinking soft drink can sometimes makes us feel more thirsty because it has high level of sugar. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Water is always the best thing to hydrate your body. Soft drinks are only good for the taste but not really good to quench thirst. Sometimes juice is best because of the minerals that may be lacking in your body that can cause you to be dehydrated.

Yeah, water is the best thing to keep our body hydrated than any other beverages especially soft drink. As our body contains high percentage of water, so we need it in order to keep healthy and live longer. Fruit juices could be good than any kind of soft drink and soda. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Cut me and I bleed coke. I love drinking soft drinks and it now scares me because my cravings can sometimes be uncontrollable. I like to drink water when my thirst can't be quenched by soft drinks, especially when very thirsty. Soft drinks is good after a very good meal.

I don't think soft drink can be good for us. I've read a lot of research regarding this matter and always it says its bad, especially taking much or making it as a habit to drink after every meal. Soft drink has a strong ingredient that can weaken our bones thus lead to serious disease and illness in the long run. Aside from that it can make one gain weight and suffer dehydration. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I drink water for sure. Sometimes juices the last thing I will drink is soda. Water is good for us, we should drink a lot. I usually drink around 10-12 glasses a day. Try to drink more water it is good for you. If not drink Gatorade.

Yeah, water is always best and it keeps us healthy. It's nice to hear that you always drink 10-12 glasses everyday. Because not all people can do that,even me, although I tried my best to drink much water than any other beverages. That's why I make a habit of drinking water first thing in the morning with an empty stomach. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I like to drink water when I'm so thirsty, cold water... Soft drinks? not much but there's times wherein I crave only for softdrinks and not satisfied when I don't drink any softdrinks. Yeah, It's better to drink water after drinking coffee or softdrinks, it's like diluting it.
• Philippines

Yeah, in some research its known that soft drinks has an active ingredient of phosphoric acid that can be very unhealthy as it could dissolve a nail in about 4 days, so it can weaken our bones, so it's important to drink 3-3 glass of water after drinking a glass of soft drinks, to eliminate those substance and impurities. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!
