With me it could be that I was raised on soda my Dad drinks Mt Dew and My Mom drinks Dr. Pepper so from the time I was little I was drinking soda.

As an aside I hate water it literally makes me gag when I have to drink just plain water.

Maybe not if you have severe type 1 diabetes, but most diabetics have less severe forms. I have mild type 2 diabetes, and I still have stuff with sugar in it (such as, ahem, ice cream). I just have to watch how much of that stuff I eat, and make sure to get regular exercise. I did have to switch from regular soda (I used to drink close to a 12-pack per day of regular Coke) to diet soda, and lately I've had to start taking medication (Metformin) to control blood sugar, but I can still eat some sugar. In the summer, I ride between 100-200 miles per week on my bike (most of it in hilly terrain), so I can get away with more sugary stuff (and more stuff in general).

Funny Quis, I have the same problem....but with beer  ;D

I do agree that coke is tasty, but in this order:

1. Glass bottle
2. Can
3. Fountain
4. Plastic bottle
