luvmycat1 - You smoke too, don't you?
There is a little flap at the top of your stomach, both nicotine and caffeine numb this. When that happens it cannot keep the contents of your stomach in your stomach as well as it's supposed to.
Anyone ever lean over after drinking a pop and had it come back up? Not fun...
So for those that have heartburn problems, just cutting out caffeine may not help. If you smoke you may have to give that up too. Fatty foods also keep food in your stomach for longer, which could irritate things.
I still drink a little pop now and then (when eating at a restaurant since other towns tap water tastes weird). But pretty much gave it up cold turkey. No withdrawal or caffeine headaches. I thought the caffeine might have been adding to my tachycardia problem but it wasn't, so giving it up for that didn't help me any.

That's about a 4 day supply for me.
Bottled water can get expensive, have you considered getting a good filter?
