I suggest to people to use Crystal Light type stuff as a stepping stone. Most of them have artificial sweeteners, which is gross, but some have splenda I think, which is a hair less gross. But it's way better than soda. Or you can do tea with a smidgen of honey or no sweetener at all. A lot of herbal teas have fruit flavors that don't really need sweetening.

I agree. Out of sight out of mind. I know its easier said than done, but definitely helps to not buy it
