Does Sparkling Water Help You?

Does anyone else find sparkling water helpful? I’m finding that I was going for a beer or the like sometimes because I didn’t want tap water, and that was all that was in the fridge. I’m trying to keep sparkling waters in the fridge so I can grab one of those instead. I feel like it’s helping me break, or at least make a replacement in that part of my habit.

Yes when I first gave up drinking I guzzled ice cold sparkling water, and because its only water you can make it a healthy new habit! Enjoy :cup_with_straw:

My alcoholic gf absolutely loves them. I ended up picking up a Spindrift habit myself because of it. They’re nothing but carbonated water and squeezed fruit juice. Nothing else! :yum:

Yes sparkling water all he way.
Especially in restaurants. At first sparkling water in a wine glass. At home or in a restaurant. I drank a ton of LaCroix. For some reason I’ve eased off the sparkling until evening. Maybe because of the winter. I don’t know. But for the first few months. Tons of sparkling water. It helped me a lot.

I never tried sparkling water. I like different varieties of soda and assorted softdrinks instead. I like sugar and experimenting with new aoftdrinks. My genetics suggest that I will be diabetic soon. So, I am just enjoying it while it lasts.

ABSOLUTELY. I keep a stash of so many variants of bubbs at all times. The ritual of cracking a can, hearing the fizz and having a cold drink in my hand is still infinitely helpful to me.

It’s the same for me. When I was drinking, I usually drank liquor but it feels really good to have a cold drink and go through the act of opening the can and having something refreshing in your hand. I love how the taste reminds me of beer or seltzer with alcohol which I also really enjoyed. I find that one of the things that makes quitting hard is the routines that we create. Finding something like sparkling water can help you maintain your routine with a much better Substitute.

If you do wanna hop on the bubbs train they make bubble waters with caffeine! They also make cola flavored bubbles but, I do not recommend lol.
