    Thoughts on this to replace Diet Coke habit?

    Shop Now
    Hi Everyone-

    I'm preparing to clear the house out of diet coke tomorrow- having my last one today. This may be the hardest part for me.... but my question is- do you think replacing it with Pelligrino sparkling water is ok at first until I'm happy with plain water or should I just got rid of all the bubbly drinks for good?

    Thanks!

    Michelle

    Yes, I have had a good success on breaking diet soda and chewing gum habit with first drinking club soda with lemon or lime, and then just water. I also started shopping for a huge variety of various herbal teas (just browse shelves in the store a few times a week), and tried a new variety every day or so to keep my mind off sodas & gum. Hope that helps!

    Thanks Leida! My orange creme dessert sugarfree gum is going to be painful but the diet coke part beats that by a mile! :-)

    No problems, glad to help. A word of hope: it turned out a relatively easy habit to break. I was half a pack of gum a day, and a half liter bottle of diet soda (normally Dr. pepper or Cranberry pop). But, yeah, I dropped both relatively easy, and did not return. In fact a couple of times I did have soda since January 1st when i officially dropped it, I thought it tasted like crap. Hard things to drop for me are fruits, i keep failing back again and again....

    Totally agree. We get through 8-10 x 1.25l bottles per week.

    If you feel a relapse coming go for this instead The Original Stevia Sweetened, Zero Calorie Soda | Zevia

    Really though once you simply stop drinking it the craving will go away so hang in there.

    That stuff is amazing. LOVEEEE It, but I can't find it in Alabama, sadly. Nonetheless, it's great for a treat or an occasional cheat.

    Not sure where you're at in AL, but I know there's an Earth Fare in both Montgomery and Huntsville, maybe even Birmingham, and they stock Zevia.
