View Full Version : No More Soft Drinks for Me

Apparently acid reflux cannot be cured and can only be controlled with diet and avoiding certain things.

The 2 worst things you can do that affect acid reflux are smoking and...

Carbonated beverages.

I gave up smoking earlier this year, but I've been naughty about stopping the soda thang. I've been stocking up at Yum for my wife as well as the occasional item for myself.

So I guess while you guys get to explore the soda universe unfettered, I have to watch from the sidelines.

Oh well...

Let it go flat, then drink up.

Even if it were uncarbonated, most of these soft drinks are still loaded down with citric acid...

So sorry to hear about your problem assclown. Keep your head up smile.gif

The board will be a bit less entertaining. Though this is the BevNET and not SodaNET...so I assume that you will still "rate" all the other non-carbonated beverages. Hopefully!

AssClown, may I recommend getting some kind of medication to control it, then drinking soda in moderation? Maybe extreme moderation, but anything is better than "never again." Maybe one a week or something.

How about Rafe Chibot? Will he be here making wise ass comments?

The problem with the medicines for acid reflux is that while they save your esophagus, they do long-term damage to your stomach.

I absolutely love Dr. Pepper, but everytime I have one it totally macks me up.

I still drink non-carb stuff, though...
