    I drink it all the time... I don't think it is bad at all aside from aspertame, but there is still no concrete evidence on that as a harmful substance... do not sub for water though.

    citric acid causes the pH of most bottled drinks to be around 3-2, which is pretty acidic and may cause some problems on your teeth overtime if you're sensitive to it.

    A good alternative is green tea, which is not as acidic, or drinking some H2O right after soda to help restore the pH.

    I too drink diet soda sometimes, but I think moderation is the key. They are really helpful when on a diet!
