I can take or leave pop/soda, to be honest. I tend to drink water, milk, or tea. Mainly various types of tea.

I don't think you have to in the UK, you have to renew your licence at 70, but not a retake. I don't know how I feel about mandatory retakes...but I don't drive and have no need/want to as yet (couldn't afford it even if I wanted to), and so have never thought about it.

Flat lemonade, or lucozade is what I normally get told. Basically, try to get some fluids and replace some of the salts you've lost (assuming you've actually been puking). Maybe try some dry toast or something similar?
