Is soda considered a drug?!

Question: Is soda considered a drug!?
I know most of us drink it as much as we breath!. Is it considered a drug!? Because, i know in fact that people can be addicted to the caffeine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I'm not trying to be condescending or anything like that (I only say this because it's hard to tell how a person is saying something through text instead of voice), but I think what you were mean to ask is if soda is addictive!.
Because, drugs are drugs!.
Everyone knows what drugs are!.
And something that's addictive does NOT automatically make it a drug!.
People just associate it with that word because addiction reminds people of drugs!.
However, ANYTHING can be ADDICTIVE!.
Not just drugs!.
Addiction is a disease!.
Some are considered worse addictions to have, so that's why no one ever goes to rehab on a "soda addiction"!.
That would be weird lol!.
P!.S!. all of these people were saying "oh yeah anything that alters bodily functions is a drug", well in that case wouldn't EVERYTHING be a drug!?
Because, when you look at the reality, anything (when you become addicted to it) can alter bodily functions!.
So, no!.
The answer is ADDICTION, people may become addicted to soda, just like anything else!.

Soda itself is not a drug and neither are any of the ingredients!.

Caffeine is claimed by many to be a drug but it acutlay is not!. Drugs are either plants or plant compounds that have been altered in some form or man made chemicals!. There are many plants or plant compounds that have drug like effects and caffeine is one of them!.

Not all sodas even have caffeine!. Colas, Dr!. Pepper, Cream Soda, and Mountain Dew have it!. But Root Beer, Ginger Ale, and all fruit flavored sodas, including citris ones with the sole exception of Mt!. Dew, do not!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


I agree with Robapel!.!.!. However, you have to watch Root Beer and Cream Soda!. Some brands have caffeine and some don't!. Read the labels!. Remember Barqs has Bite!? They added caffeine then!. Since then many other brands have added caffeine!. The only way to be sure with any soda is to read the label!. Even one bottled water brand added caffeine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

well the caffeine in soda is addictive, but i don't consider it a drug because drugs have many other defects and negatives for your future!. caffeine!.!.!.i don't know of any!. ^_^' that's my personal opinion!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

yes acutaly soda itself is a drug
everything is a drug
a drug is anything that alters body function/chemistryWww@FoodAQ@Com

yes soda is a drug, anything that alters body function is a drug!.

btw people drink so much soda, & their addicted to it!!!!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Partly, I'm thinking of the caffeine in it!.

Caffeine is a stimulant which goes into the category of drugs!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

soda, no, but caffeine is!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
