I appreciate your comment and I'm sorry about your stress. In my case, it's my nails that take a beating when stressed out.
As for fluid intake, reading all the other comments, it seems drinking soda pop is almost a hard addiction for many. So much damage for so little reward. I feel sorry for that guy who drinks a can of pop in the bus ride to work every morning. Not 8am yet, and already victim to an artificial craving.
I'm nobody to tell you that, but all the power to you for trying to mind your intake of water. And even more power to you if you try to mind your intake of soda pop.
