Diet Coke, Actually.

I have been drinking diet soda for as long as I can remember.  Tab (now thats going wayyy back) was my first.

When Diet Coke came out, it was all over....  I know I drink wayyy to much. But when I try and quit, I get a raging headache.  Plus, I'll have a soda most days in the morning, because while I love coffee, it's easier to grab a soda and head out the door.  Somedays I need my caffine fix faster than sipping a cup of Joe allows.

I have started to try and drink a glass of water in between every soda, so I can maybe wean myself off the stuff.  It's getting to be an expensive habit!  Have you noticed they don't seem to run the killer soda sales like they used to?

I may have gotten headaches, but I don't really remember. I tend to get headaches from time to time for seemingly no reason, so if I did, I wouldn't have thought much of it. <br />

It would be a "bad" thing to me. I'd be okay, because I don't drink much Dr. Pepper, but I'd be in trouble if it was Mountain Dew.

Degen- that's amazing....didn't you get a major headache quitting cold turkey? I get a rager everytime I go a day w/o. <br />

"my cheapness is far stronger than my dietary willpower" LOL!! I only wish in my case! I'd be a gazillionaire! Though I do have far less fast food than I used to...<br />
I did find a Dollar General store that sells 2 liter bottles of Dr Pepper for 70 cents. 45 cents when it's on sale. I'm not sure this is a good thing or not.<br />
And absolutely- a case of soda is rarely a good sale anymore.....

Yeah, now it costs around 5 bucks a case. I remember getting cokes two years ago for $2.75 a case on sale on a fairly regular basis, and never for more than $3.50. That was one of the reasons I quit my two case a week habit. I quit by simply not buying it; my cheapness is far stronger than my dietary willpower (The same thing worked for not buying junk food.). I'll still drink a coke if I go out to eat (or in the campus dining hall), but I don't drink anywhere near as much as I used to (2-3 cases on a bad week).
