    Most wont remember but a couple of days ago I decided tostop drinking diet coke couse its bad for you, and I thought I would say how I'm gettting on...

    This might help: diet coke (and all fizzy drinks) have an ingredient in common with car paint stripper

    I was the same. I have stopped drinking all fizzy drinks. But i now only drink water. Even though you may not want to hear that it is the best drink to drink. I didnt like it when i started but you do get use to it. I not have been drinking water all the time for about a year now .

    I do want to, I dont think I'll have any today couase I'm not going out until my concert, I get really tired in them though because I have to play for three hours to 11:00pm. I think I'll try to buy something else, I do go through phases though, befrore I drank loads of apple tango! I think its cause when I was younger I wasn't allowed any fizzy drinks. I might try the flavoured water as that could bring me back to drinking water.
    flavoured water is horrible though!.......why not drink coffee instead

    Unless, of course, you fail to dilute it with water.

    I did that for a while, but put on weight cause I had two sugars and a lot of milk, I think water is the safest option!

    I think tea has more caffeine in than coffee.
    (And coffee is so much cooler :-))

    Might I suggest herbal tea.

    I used to be a coke/anything-fizzy/coffee addict madman too before I stopped with the coffee (6 months ago) and the fizzy drinks 3/4 weeks ago. Its so much healthier to have just water..stuff like Ribena/Vimto etc.

    Since giving up fizzy drinks I've become completely spotless..I mean, I was pretty spotless anyway but now its like..uber spotless, no marks, no scars, no nothing. Admittedly, when I'm out with m8s, I will drink a can of Pepsi with a meal or what have you, if no bottled water is available, buts rarely.

    You should drink diet decaf coke... it tastes like poo, but it's healthier to drink than either diet or regular coke, i suppose. Else, if it's the fizz you like, buy some carbonated water and mix it with fruit juices, that's nice.
