I'm pre-op and will occasionally have a pop here and there (maybe once a week), but I definitely don't buy it anymore. I stopped buying it when it just got to be so ridiculous to carry all of these twelve packs of pop up the stairs only to do it again in a week. My laziness made me stop completely. My parents are addicted to diet pop and that is pretty much all they drink, so I still technically have to buy it for them since I'm living with them until the end of the month. About 5 years ago, I was drinking 100oz of Diet Dr. Pepper a day and my blood pressure was dangerously high, so I decided to give up caffeine to see if that would help lower it. Now I only drink water.
