Neither - I quit drinking soda altogether a few weeks ago. Previous to that I was drinking diet. I feel like my junk food cravings have tapered off a lot since quitting soda, so I think there might be something to the theory that it leads to these cravings...

they are both full of sugar but I don't like the after taste of zero, it's regular for me but only on a very rare occasion.

I choose water or my juices (I make them so no added stuff). There are much healthier ways to get caffeine in the morning.

I try not to drink any at all, because it's addicting to me. Sometimes I drink Coke Zero or Regular (on very special occasions) as a special treat.

Diet Coke

regular coke is a sugar explosion
coke zero tastes flat.

And remember what Dirty Harry said "opinions are like ***holes, everyone has one..."

I gave up Coke in Sept 2012. I may drink one diet pepsi a day. Usually it is water or coffee.

Neither. I used to pound Diet Dr. Peppers all day at work but I have totally given them up since September. I drink decaf iced tea and water now and I feel better.

There are just so many empty calories in a regular coke I cannot imagine drinking them while trying to lose weight or be healthy.

Between diet and regular, definitely regular, but I have not had soda since January, because it gave me massive headaches. Just bear in mind that ONE can of soda, has the equivalent of 10 tsp of sugar.
I highly suggest drinking mostly water and severely limiting soft drinks. The best way to get all your water for the day is to start your day with one liter of water before you do ANYTHING else, and then spread the rest through out the day.

I don't do diet anything because when I have I drank or ate somemthing with fake sugar I go off of my healthy lifestyle big time and get all screwed up from the false hunger and cravings that fake sugars give me. I have soda rarely as a treat and it is always regular and only about 8 oz.

no Coke...I can't figure out what benefit it would be to drink soda, so I'm still sticking with water and tea

I drink mostly Coke Zero. It is made with Splenda and comes in different flavors which is great for me. For Lent, I gave up caffeine, so I have been drinking caffeine free diet Coke. I have had a lot of cravings like crazy. I used the drink as a reward for every 4 glasses of water I drink, but now I do not enjoy it as much. I can only have small amounts of sugar per serving and my doctor was the one that suggested Coke Zero when it first came out. In excess it can be bad for your teeth, but diet wise I think it is okay. I have lost weight with no issues related to drinking Coke Zero. In fact, I have gained three pounds since Lent began. I think it is what you make it.

I have been drinking coke zero because of the no calories, but have heard that it is actually better for you to just drink regular coke than the diet drinks with the fake sweeteners in them. Read that the fake sweeteners make you want to eat more often, and make you crave carbs more.... If that is the case am I better off just having a coke? I only have 1 soda in the morning to wake up then the rest of the day I drink water. And I know someone is liable to bring it up, I can't drink coffee, it messes with my stomach really bad and makes me sick... not sure what is in coffee that does that, but I can't touch the stuff.
