I've discovered that those flavored (but unsweetened) carbonated water drinks are not too bad. I think a considerable part of what I've been craving is the bubbles. Not all--I still miss the sweetness of soda--but these help.

I haven't tried stevia-sweetened soda yet but I might at some point. I feel like I ought to try to push through the sweet craving so that I just stop wanting soda at all, but that could just be puritanism.

It's interesting how much more expensive the water things are than mainstream sodas, which here in the US are often on sale extremely cheap (like, $12 for three twelve-packs) in supermarkets. Apparently soda sales are falling in the US, and the manufacturers desperately want their market share back.

Like you I want bubbles without the sugar. I ended up buying a Soda Stream (TM) and make my own water with bubbles in it for around the same price as buying from the supermarket, but with less landfill. You can also add your choice of flavour by the glass (I like lime cordial and Angostura bitters).

The locker room in my gym has a cooler of ice water with lemon slices--just lemon slices, no sugar. It's quite refreshing. I keep meaning to experiment at home with cucumber slices or herbs deployed similarly--I bet tarragon would be really good.
