    Default stick with vs stick to

    "Come to think of it, I'll stick to the original plan."

    Would there be a difference, If we change it to "stick with the original plan"?

    "I'm not going to be drinking alcohol. I'll stick to orange juice."

    Can we say "stick with orange juice" in this context?
