How do I cure my soda addiction?

I have been dieting and cut down to diet soda... But I fell off the wagon yesterday with a regular Coke. I can't stop myself.. I love Coke!!! Any suggestions on how to get back on the wagon and stop the Coke Addiction??? Should I just not eat and drink Coke, because I think that would be easier.

  • I wish it was as easy for me to give up my diet coke as some people have suggested. I've tried drinking water and even had iced tea at times to slowly wean off the caffeine, but nothing has worked. Sometimes I get down to one can a day, but then one bad day will start me drinking a lot more again. If you find something that works let me know...I swear there's something besides the caffeine that's addictive about it.

  • I say the best way to quit anything is cold turkey. It worked for me and cigarettes. You just have to be strong. And don't let set backs get you down. You fall off the wagon, you get up, brush yourself off, and get back on! Good luck!

  • Diet Coke isn't any good either. You have to stop them both and drink plenty of water. I quit all at once and have been drinking water since.

  • You are talking about a caffeine addiction.  The only way to kick it is to just stop drinking it.

  • the only way is COLD TURKEY. drink only water, and if you still crave a sweet drink, try crystal light on the go packets- i love the lemonade and tea with lemon flavors.

  • Yea I am addicted to Dr pepper. I have just been drinking a ton of water and it is ok to have a soda every once and a while. It is hard but I have been doing this for a couple of months now and it is way easier to walk past a dr pepper and not give in.
