I love unsweet tea...the only problem with it is that almost all iced tea at restaurants, gas stations, etc. is caffeinated...moreso than soda.

There's this little old lady that I deliver to...she orders a lunch special (sandwich, salad and a drink) every Friday around 2pm. During Lent, she only ordered the fish sandwich and gave up soda for Lent...she's too cute!

well, of course tea is caffeinated. (scratches head).

if you're going to establish a new habit, drink water!

What I should have said is...I didn't realize that tea had as much caffeine as it does.

12oz Dr Pepper: 41 mg
12oz Iced Tea: 71 mg
12oz coffee: 150 mg

I actually drink about 4-8 glasses a water a day...sometimes more.

Jesus H. Christ...this shit drives me nuts!
I took a behavior modification class one summer. It seemed like half the class tried to break the soda habit. Soda is a real health threat man, good luck on that habit.

Syc - try fizzy water.
It will still be like going cold turkey, but the fizz helps, especially if you have it ice-cold.

If you're not really tasing your soda anyway, the mouth-feel is similar enough to fool you.

You will need a couple of weeks (I suggest a month) with NO soda though. Otherwise it will taste like what it is - a flavourless substitute. After a month, if you go back to soda it will taste like what it is, sugary crap.

I don't have a boss, but I can understand your sentiments mate. Sometimes bosses take you for granted and treat you like shit, just because they can...till you quit. Then you just get someone else to take you for granted and treat you like shit.

I suggest a lotto ticket. Maybe you can give them all the big A.

besides posters overcompensating for their with small-title complex? TV shows that start just before the top of the hour, so you miss the first, crucial minute.

DVR software compensates for this by allowing you to begin recording a specified amount before the scheduled start time. Or, after the sheduled end time. For instance, I kept getting the last gag in Futurama cut off, so I set it to record until 5 minutes after the end time. Then, I started getting five minutes of Southpark. So...then I set it to record for 30 minutes after. Now, I get Southpark recorded without taking up a slot in the queue! So, you see, when life hands you lemons, get a Tivo and you can kill two mockingbirds with one lemonade.
