After way too many years being addicted to Diet Coke, I finally decided I just couldn't go on feeling sluggish and irritable, so I kicked my habit to the curb. (It's cold turkey or nothing with me, as I've discovered when I tried to "wean" myself off of it and just ended up drinking more than ever!)
My question is for anyone who has quit aspartame - did you have any withdrawal symptoms?
It's currently Day 7. I haven't quit caffeine - still drink unsweetened tea and coffee on a regular basis - so the only thing I'm ridding myself of at the moment is that damn aspartame.
While I have noticed a SIGNIFICANT improvement in my energy level, I have also started having bad headaches, body aches, and an increase in mood swings and anxiety.
That's why I'm looking to see if anyone else has had similar experiences? Please share, so I don't feel like I'm alone in this unpleasant battle. LOL
