If you HAVE to have Soda but hate Diet Coke/Pepsi, mix it with your favorite soda
I know some people that have to have soda when they go out. At most restaurants, they will usually just offer Diet Coke or Pepsi. Mix 3 ounces of your favorite dark soda (mine is Dr. Pepper) with your diet soda. You'll get the taste of Dr. Pepper, but a fraction of the calories.
This is something I have done when there isn't any diet soda options that I like at a restaurant :)
When I gave up soda, I did it by drinking water-- every time I went to grab a soda, THOUGHT about grabbing a soda, or even SAW soda, I drank a glass of water instead. After a few weeks, I was off soda for good, and onto a healthy water habit. My partner gave up soda by switching out his soda with seltzer water. You can buy it in a variety of flavors (usually in the soda aisle or water aisle) and it's a GREAT alternative if you still want the fizzy comfort.
You can usually find seltzer water in 12 packs or 2 liter bottles at your local grocer. You may also find tonic water, which is seltzer with added sodium.
