What Can My Dad Use To Replace Coca-cola And End His Addiction by DaySpringer: 7:45pm On May 28, 2020
My Dad is a coca-cola addict.
He loves drinking the stuff. He can take two 35cl plastic bottles in a day.

I have been nagging him about it since he has High-Blood Pressure because of the high Sugar and Sodium Content of the drink.
He has reduced but it is still not enough. I want him to completely stop it and let us see the effects on the HBP condition.

I know that in order to get rid of a habit, it is good to replace the habit with something else.

I am asking the knowledgeable experts on this forum, what chilled drink that doesn't contain sugar, can he use to stop his coca-cola addiction.

I personally only drink Chivita 100% Pineapple, which is supposed to be absent of sugar. I don't take carbonated soft drinks. (Sometimes I cheat with Guinness Malt if I get hungry outside the house)
Can I use the drink to replace his coca-cola addiction?

Grate some raw ginger, extract d juice in hot water&sieve, add some lime juice, squeeze some raw pineapple juice. You can then make it as watery and add honey to taste. Always keep this refrigerated in bottles for him.
It will help his cardiac health too.

I don't know how I overcome that addiction to be sincere, maybe because of my excess consumption of pineapples and watermelons.

@ Op,

Water remains the only alternative for your father.

He needs to know the dangers of consuming carbonated drinks and resolve to break the addiction.


I used to be addicted to Coca-Cola soft drink but now, I can go on for 2 weeks without taking a sip.

Zobo drink (made with natural sweeteners like pineapple) is also a good alternative and this will help to lower his BP.
Re: What Can My Dad Use To Replace Coca-cola And End His Addiction by Peachy14(f): 5:28am On May 29, 2020
Ice tea or Zobo drinks without sugar

The most important thing you can do is to make sure your dad takes his BP drugs regularly.
Coke intake does not cause high BP and is thus not going to have any effect on his BP.
I am sure he is not regular on his BP drugs and if so you are leaving the substance and chasing the shadow.
It maynot also be what the average Nigerian wants to hear,after most have been hearing numerous conspiracy theories and utterly nonsensical information of how soft drinks cause a lot of diseases;but 2 bottles of coke per day should not cause your father any problems.
Work on fact not hearsay,lies and fiction.
Don't link soft drinks intake to BP,definitely not 2 bottles a day.
Go do a sugar level test for him.

How can someone be addicted to cocacola sef. I can nearly finish 35cl.

Diabetes is real.

Carbonated drinks can infact raise your father's blood pressure. Coke contains caffeine which triggers a spike in blood pressure. Your father is infact living dangerously.

Water is the best drink for your father at this point in time.
Hibiscus drink(zobo) without any additive or sugar is another good alternative.
