Now I can't drink soda first thing in the morning! But I have been known to attempt it when no coffee was availible. I'm trying to ditch it altogether (even tho I drink diet) cause I know how poisonous aspartame is to one's system, plus it ultimately dehydrates the shit out of me further. Tired of waffling between being bloated to the gills and dehydrated. Less sodas and more water has helped.
