    When I find I'm sick of water I add a bit of make up cordial. I've got an apple and raspberry one. It's sweet so don't need a lot.

    It's the aspartame that puts me off. Maybe you could invest in a soda****** if you really don't want water.
    In any case, I'm sure the odd can here and there will be fine.

    After I gave up soft drink and I was getting sick of water, I added some fresh lemon juice to the water.

    The article you posted says there is no evidence that aspartame is harmful though??

    I'm never going to eat perfectly, I'm not THAT bothered by putting fat and sugar in my body... but when my option is "full of fake ingredients," or "full of fat/sugar," I will take the latter, because it just feels more right for me.

    There's no scientific evidence to support how I feel exactly, though I've heard plenty of anti-diet ingredient claims... I haven't done the research to know how truthful all of that is... but in all honesty... I figure if I'm going to drink it/eat it, I'm going to eat the one with REAL SUGAR rather than FAKE SUGAR because it FEELS less risky and it TASTES about 1000x better.

    When I am trying to lose weight I will have a diet soft drink in the afternoon or after dinner instead of snacking on sugary desserts. It's a great way to satisfy a sweet craving without having any extra calories.

    In this way, I think diet soft drinks can be useful in keeping weight down.

    Yes sorry, my comment is very confusing. Shouldn't have said anything. To be honest I'm a bit of a worry wort when it comes to anything artificial in food and drink, to the point where I was on a raw food diet. But I've learnt to tone it down and be realistic. My main objective was to let starlight know that drinking a few cans of diet softdrink is in fact ok and not to feel bad about it.
    I wasn't going to add my 2cents worth at the start but I felt like I was promoting diet soft drinks, so I ended up contradicting myself instead
    Maybe I'll delete it to save confusion.

    No no, I wasn't saying delete! Just was trying to understand your position

    Totally agree with Atropos. Soft drink should only be an 'occasional' drink anyway. I get sick of all the hoax info on diet drinks etc. It is the most thoroughly tested food additive on the market. The studies that showed it as having a cancer link gave rats over 3 times the rdi. The sun will give you cancer in high does, that doesn't make it bad overall.

    The funny thing is that artificial sweeteners are hidden in lots of foods that people consume and don't think about. In medicines especially.
