Is this healthy, and if not, how can I make it healthier?

Fruit juice is confusing. How do I figure out what's healthy versus what's not, and what about natural sugar? Even though the juices I'm using don't have sugar added, there's natural sugar, right? Are 3 pints of fruit juice and carbonated water each night, spread out between 7pm and midnight, bad for me?

This is a follow-up to my previous question
about carbonated drinks. A few months ago, I started drinking fruit juice mixed with seltzer instead of drinking wine or beer at night. I must say, I haven't missed the alcohol at all, but I want to make sure I'm not trading one bad habit for another. What I want is 100% frickin' natural juice with nothing added or taken away, but the labels seem to make it more confusing. On a typical night, I may drink what amounts to 3 pints of carbonated water and fruit juice (usually a combo of something citrus mixed with cranberry or grape). It's funny, really. It was never my intention to give up alcohol, and I haven't... but ever since I bought a Purefizz
carbonator doodad, I rarely drink alcohol at home anymore.
Hopefully this isn't all a ridiculous question.
