Any advice would really help :)

I have decided after reading a spark friends page to cut soda and eventually caffeine out of my diet. I know I am sabotaging my weight by drinking the amount that I do. About 2 years ago I drank probably a good 2 litres of it a day if not more. When I was pregnant with my son I cut it out completely because my taste buds went nuts and every time I'd try to drink it, it would leave a real bad taste in my mouth.. like I had just swished my mouth with water and pennies lol. I never suffered from caffeine headaches or anything like that. But stupid me, I started drinking it again once my pregnancy was done and now I'm desperate to be off it for good. I would like to quit cold turkey but I'm not sure I can handle the insane caffeine headaches I get just from going almost a full day without any soda. So first of all I need to know if it would be better to ease off it or to just drop it completely. Second, I have one cup of coffee in the morning (half the time I don't even finish it). Is it okay to drink this one cup of coffee? Will it help keep the headache away until soda is gone out of my diet and then I can work on cutting caffeine as well? If anybody has any tips or advice I would really really appreciate it.
