You are almost there, trust me. I cut out all soda cold turkey after I had my gallbladder surgery and it was hard for the first couple weeks.

Don't be tempted! Try lemon slices in your water, or fruit juices for a bit of variety.

You CAN do this. It is all psychological.

I also quit my Coke Zero addiction about 4 days ago. I actually have been doing better than I expected. I am drinking water and about half the time adding a little Mio to it. I don't want to add too much too often, because that has artificial sweetener in it, too. I was drinking probably 4 (sometimes more) diet colas a day. It just can't be good for me. I kept rationalizing it by saying, well, I don't drink, smoke or swear so I have to have something!

It has been around three years that I gave up diet soda. I can not stand it anymore. Now I do occasionally drink soda. Only ginger ale or sprite I can't even stand dark colas anymore. BUT I don't crave it like I did before. I stopped getting so many migraines. It was rough for a while but once I stopped craving I stopped liking it.

My drink was diet dr pepper. Nothing was better then opening up a bottle and that first really cold drinkI know I am not helping but now that thought grosses me out.

Oh, I love those freestyle machines! It is a Coke machine that allows you to specialize your drink by not only pop type (Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, etc) but you can also add a flavor to it, like Raspberry, Lemon, Orange, Lime, Vanilla or my favorite, Cherry Vanilla. I would always get Coke Zero with Cherry Vanilla...yum! Our Moe's and Noodles & Co. restaurants have these, and one of our local grocery stores.

Yup best(and worst!!) things ever!! We discovered them in universal studios on our last trip. Since then some local places to us have installed them. I think they say there are over 100 choices of drinks from them. I will miss them, not only did I love all the soda combos but it always made me think of our last Orlando vacation

I gave diet soda up for Lent, and besides having less indigestion, I really didn't notice any other differences in my overall health.

That's not very helpful, though, I guess...

I never liked diet soda, but I do drink regular soda at work just about daily. The problem is that I like a little bit of caffeine but i can't drink coffee or tea because they have too much caffeine and make me jittery.

I have found a good flavorful alternative for me though to cut out a lot of the soda. Propel Zero water. Their grape, peach and black cherry flavors are delicious!
