Very much in favor of soda taxes. Cigarette taxes (in New York, at least) are sky-high, but no one that lives here really balks at them anymore because the health risks are so well established.
I’m just glad I broke my soda addiction early on. I drank probably 2 or 3 cans a day, but gave it up for Lent sometime in high school (lol Catholicism). I not only lost four pounds after only A WEEK, but came out the other side without the cravings. I still have a Dr. Pepper or a fancy artisanal soda every now and then, but I never keep the stuff in the house.
