No matter how hard I try to stick with plain water, I always seem to crave sugary fizzy drinks....they taste so thirst quenching to me. I have even tried increasing my intake of water to 10 glasses a day incase it was dehydration issues, but it doesnt seem to help stop cravings.
For a healthier option, pour some juice into a glass and top with soda water. Or you can brew your own water kefir, which would be healthier by far than any of the other options.

I crave fizz. Oh, how I crave it.
Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.
This is what works for me. Natural sparkling mineral water. The brand I buy is from Italy. It tastes very different than soda water such as Schweppes.
I expect the minerals help and the sparkling aspect makes it more guzzle-able and tasty than just plain water.
Good luck, it's a tough addiction to overcome, at least for me it was!
I don't drink caffeine, but I get a jolt from the HFCS and had gotten into a sugar pattern with them last spring.
Peace through homemaking.

I'll fourth the kombucha then, if you're not used to drinking it, it might take awhile, but once you are it's awsome stuff.
Wards off flu and colds too
2. Realize it's an addiction and treat it as such, if it matters to you.
3. Cut out ALL HFCS.
You need to sort of 'cleanse' yourself, and then your body should adjust to healthier drinks/food. That's how it is for me anyways.
Oh, I can do lemon water all day, but can't stand plain water. I realize it's bad for my tooth enamel...sigh. So I can do plain water if it's VERY cold. But I would the least 'processed' way of tolerating water.
