So Nikki has inspired me. As of now I am giving up diet softdrinks :!: (and non diet of course).

Anyone else want to quit too?

Not me!

*clings tightly to her bottle of pepsi max*

However, I will do it once I reach my goal weight. It will become an 'occasional drink' but I think I rely on it too much at the moment as a treat so I'll hang onto it for a bit longer. I have one can a day - moderation, eh?

Good luck to the rest of you!

I feel a bit guilty joining this challenge, because I drink very little diet soft drink any more anyway. I usually only drink it with vodka now. So this is really a personal challenge to give up vodka, which I find way harder than giving up soft drink! :lol:

I would love to kick the 'diet' drink habbit desperately. I think I have a real problem with it :roll:. I drink zero coke, diet coke or pepsi max everyday and a friend of mine told me the phenylalanine used in diet drinks is really bad :?. It doesn't sound good :lol:.

So count me in (as of tomorrow) and lets see how we go! John, I love mineral water, but what are the flavoured waters you drink?

Good luck, Lanexo

I only drink the stuff when I'm mixing it with alcohol. I dunno.. I just prefer water. I used to drink a lot of juices but yeah, drinking nothing but water when I'm not drinking alcohol is just a habit that has stuck since I started weight-loss a couple of years ago.

However! I eat dill pickles pretty much every day >_< I cannot get enough of the things. So the challenge for me will be to try and kick those water-retaining little censored.

(Yes I also crave the expensive strawberry icecream that comes in those black tubs.. what is it called, conissuer?.. but I'm not pregnant :oops: )

at woolies they have home brand orange and mango... 1.5 litre bottles I think for .85c .... must admit they are my favourite..

also over chrissie stocked up with loads of $1 a bottle of diet rips (various flavours - all good) from The Warehouse... 1.25 litre bottle... my favs are the grape and cranberry/boysenberry... totally weaned off diet pepsi now which is good..

got the kids drinking them instead of coke and stuff. theres minimum calories in them.

Thanks for that John. I will have a look at the shops. I must get the kids off diet drinks too, I 'm sure that's where it all starts. God knows, they'll blame me for their pepsi addiction one day :lol:.

yep we are responsible for our kids diets... have always kept them away from the bad stuff *even eaten it myself to save it from them in the past lols :wink: but now I'm more and more strict on them... Maccas is a once a week treat (no in betweenies) and we dont stock a lot of stuff in the house anymore... (out of sight out of mind)... hopefully educating them now will save grief down the track... I know I was never educated on any of this and could basically have what i wanted.. was a different life back then tho in the 60s and 70s

Rgds.. john

This is harder than I thought. Why didn't I say I'd quit on Tuesday. How can one give up caffeine on a Monday? At least I have 3 hours of meetings this afternoon to avoid the temptation.

In the meantime, am going to the foodcourt in search of a replacement drink...
