First and foremost thing is to control yourself and try to resist the urge to pick up the bottle of soft drinks and take a gulp. Self-control is the best way to avoid the problem at hand is what my opinion.
Controlling oneself from the urge of junk food and that ship of soft drinks is a challenging task. I have seen in money videos when the soft drinks are boiled, it leaves a lot of carbon you can imagine that carbon going into your stomach whenever you see the bottle of the soft drink that way you will know what happens if you drink it and that will help you stop right there and put that body back in the fridge.
I have seen in videos and experience that soft drinks can be used to clean toilets do it once or twice. And after that whenever you want to drink that soft drinks the image of cleaning toilet should come to your mind and that should make you disgusting and not want to drink it. This has helped me earlier when I used to drink soft drinks like coke.
If any of these doesn't work the best ideas to not to buy them and find alternatives to offer to your guests like lemon juice or other fruit juice made at home immediately as and when required
Hope this will be of some help to you.

Whenever you feel like drinking a cool drink, make fresh lemon juice and add water and salt to that juice and drink. This is not dangerous and it will be good for your health also.
If you have a real will, you can stop drinking soft drinks from fridge.
Do not buy soft drinks at all. Keep lemons and if needed soda too. Make lemon juice or lemon soda (either sweet or salty) when you feel to drink cool drink. Warm water boiled with cumin(jeera) and Tulsi leaves etc, is the best to quench thirst in warm weather also. If you willingly follow this for some days, you will lose the yearning for soft drinks . You can give lemon juice or Jeera water to guests also.
In our home we keep warm water (with jeera) in at thermos flask always.I drink that only as far as possible.

My wife has tried to find a solution. She has prepared two-three big bottles of lemon-water and has kept it the refrigerator. Whenever my daughter or myself have an urge to have cold drinks, she gives us the lemon-water. We immensely enjoy it and don't crave cold drinks.
Although I don't know whether cold lemon-water is as bad as cold-drinks, our habit of taking cold drinks has changed. You may also try this method.
