One of my biggest weaknesses in the world is my Diet Pepsi. I know I really need to cut it out, but I that will be harder then anything else I have to overcome.

Years ago I was all about Dr Pepper, but I knew I had to get rid of it. As soon as I went back to diet and noticed a huge differance in my weight. Just that change alone made all the differance in the world, but its not enough.

If anyone knew how much Diet Pepsi I drank it would blow their mind, but I just cant let it go. I have tried to cut back, but that doenst last long either. I have tried the caffeine free and its not bad. I cant give up all my caffeine at once. I have even tried alternating between regular and caffeine free, but somehow I always end up back to all regular.

Does anyone else have soda or caffiene issues? More important does anyone have success stories without giving up soda

When I was diagnosed with diabetes I had to give up my Coke. I can't drink diet because it gives me a massive headache AND at the time I was trying some oxygen therapy and had to give up all carbonated beverages.

The best thing to do is don't buy it for home. Try some tasty substitutes like flavored teas, etc. But don't go cold turkey. Allow yourself a treat when you are away from home.

Me Me Me too! I have a serious problem, I am addicted to Pepsi. I know that my "thickness" is due to my Pepsi drinking, but I cant stop. I have tried the caffine free and its nasty, I have tried cutting back but it only works for a few weeks. I wish I could kick my nasty habit!

I Myself Prefer "coke", "pepsi" Is Much More Sweeter......i Don't Have Much Of A Problem With Drinking Soda But After A While Of Drinking It It Makes Me Sick To My Tummy. The Best Way For Me To Control It Is Not To Buy It Anymore, I Stock Up On Water, I Love Water, And Juices, My Juice Of Choice Would Be Any Juice Made From Dole. If I Go Out For Fast Food, I Will Either Replace It With Tea (nestea....brisk W/lemon, Thats Gooooooood!), Water Or Milk. Best Way To Do It Is Slowly, Take Your Time, Give Yourself An Incentive...good Luck!!!!!!!!
