I've gone from drinking 6+ cans of diet coke, down to 2-3 a day, and right now am pretty content with that. Eventually I'll totally eliminate it, but it's the only thing I drink besides plain water and I enjoy the flavor and caffeine boost. But my teeth have suffered from it so that's why I weaning myself off of it. Slowly cutting back over several months has worked really well though-no headaches or other issues, even cutting back my intake by half, if not more! I usually drink the kind with splenda-don't know if that makes a difference or not, I like the taste better than regular diet coke.

Buy bottles, not cans. Measure out your servings and pour them over ice. Decrease the serving size by 1/2 ounce per serving per day. Switch to smaller glasses as the serving size gets smaller.
