Bottle to a Sippy Cup Issues!!!

Hello mommies out there!!
I am in need of advice" really bad". I have a 18 months old son that just will not give into any type of Sippy cups. I've tried the nubby that has the handle, take and toss, 360 cup. I have tried going through the day time without giving him a bottle and he cried all day resisting the Sippy. I've also tried giving in a little, to just minimize his bottle through out the day and give it to him at night. And last but not least giving him juice or milk in the sippy and plain water in the bottle trick! Nothing will get pass my lil guy. He is refusing everything. I would like to hear all of the mommy's input!

Does he always need liquid in it or is it just the thought of it? I know for Pacifier problems if you snip the tip of them like I did with my daughter, they usually put it down on their own, but I don't know if that will work with a bottle, maybe telling him it's time for a new big bottle and having him throw it in the trash himself? Something that makes him feel like he has some type of control over the situation, and don't keep any in the home? I think Eventually he will get thirsty enough to try it...I know that sounds bad but just make a few sippy cups available around the house and don't press the issue, especially if he picks one up! lol
