I drink diet soda. Pepsi, Coke, Dr. Pepper, Sprite, whatever. After noon I drink only caffeine-free so I can get a few hours of sleep at night. Soda has never bothered me, and when I tried not drinking it I couldn't tell any difference.
I've never been much of a drinker - one or two now and then. Now I might have two drinks a year, usually sangria or something else light.
