Finally cured of wanting diet soda

Sunday, February 05, 2012

I have been reading so many articles on diet soda being so unhealthy. All the chemicals. Yet, I could not give it up. Slowed down a lot, but could not give it up. Still got my 8 plus cups of water in daily, but still wanted my diet soda. Some days, I or 2 glasses. Other days, I would drink 4 or more glasses of diet soda.
Well…. After reading this article 3 days ago, I think I am cured of wanting diet soda. Only had 2 sodas since I read the article, and could not enjoy drinking it cause I kept thinking about this article on how diet soda could boost risk for stroke or heart attack.

    I like a diet coke now and then. But most of the time I just ask for ice water with extra lemon. Spark On! T

    I haven't read the article, but most excellent for you to have dropped the habit of soda! I gave it up this past November and I have to tell you how much better I feel. Funny I didn't realize how long it's been since I have had a diet pepsi with lime - my go to choice. You have encouraged me to go and count the days! Keep up the good habit!! Best wishes to you in 2012!

    I do drink mostly tea now, but still drink a diet soda during the night. The carbonation is still refreshing - I used to drink six or seven a day, though. Now: water and tea; some coffee. Maybe someday I'll be strong enough to give it up...

    Glad to hear that you gave up diet soda. I too, have given it up. I was only drinking about 1-2 per day. I'm so glad that I did. I had one glass last weekend at a party and then I switched to water. I didn't miss drinking it. Good luck :)
