    If I have a choice I will aim for individually packaged drinks so that I avoid the disappointment of reduced carbonation. But sometimes there is no choice, and then I aim to consume within a few days.

    I can tolerate significantly reduced carbonation in sprite or fanta-type drinks, but not colas. It would still be kinda gross but I might drink it instead of throwing it down the drain, as long as it's cold.

    I get a choice of free egg roll or can of soda at the Chinese take out when I spend a certain amount and they didn't have egg rolls last time so I'm stuck with a can of diet Pepsi. I don't like anything carbonated. If I drink it I'll go through my de-fizzing routine - shake, let settle, shake, let settle, etc.

    People who don't like fizzy drinks - does this apply to beer as well? @BarIII @Faust

    No, I love beer. Categorically I don't think it's a fizzy drink.

    Yes. I don't like anything that burns. Fizzy drinks and alcohol burn. And I avoid things that aren't healthy. If I'm going to drink something that's not healthy I'll buy a malted, if they still sell them these days, or maybe I'll buy a Yoohoo. I haven't had either for over a year.
