If I only drink milk and soda, is it possible to get kidney stones?

Not necessarily. Milk contains calcium, a component of stones. Dehydration is more of a factor in stone production.

Caffeine within sodas can dehydrate, however. Dehydration, as mentioned above, is more of a factor in stone production.
