Anyone else quitting SODA???

This is a BIG, BIG thing for me! I last drank soda on Friday and am struggling BIG TIME! This is seriously harder than quitting smoking was for me... but the motivation I keep in mind is all the MONEY I will save!!!

I've found if I don't buy the 50 cent bottle of soda at the grocery store, I wind up running out for a $2 bottle of it. It's horrible, and I agree...it's even harder than quitting smoking. I don't drink a lot, but I do like to have it on hand for when I have a caffine craving.

I'm adicted to diet pepsi. I am also trying to "wean" myself off. Thankfully they are only $.35 a can here at work so I not buy and if I need one to get me through, it's not as bad. I'm down from 8 to 1 a day right now so hopefully by end of Sept, it will be none.

I don't drink as much as I used to, and my husband is an absolute addict, so we try and limit ourselves to one 2liter per week. I catch him sneaking extra all the time though.

Personally, I would rather drink iced tea

I started limiting myself to 1 soda a day back in July and I lost 10 pounds by doing that! I couldn't lose those 10 extra baby pounds for the life of me, and cutting soda really worked! So no, I didn't give it up completely, but I gave up 3-4 a day! Wow that's a lot

Diet coke addict here....I think if I was addicted to something else it wouldn't be so hard because perhaps I would lose weight when I stopped drinking it. I 've switched to caffeine free with this pg and have usually one with caffeine at work a day. There just isn't any pay off that I can see by quitting and YES it's MUCH MUCH HARDER THAN QUITTING SMOKING!! There was a HUGE pay off with smoking so it was easy peasy! I do wish I could be free of it, but it makes me crazy to even think about it.
