For teeth: Soda pop contains corrosive acids such as citric, malic, tartaric carbonic or phosphoric which, can remove calcium from tooth enamel. Without protection from the dental enamel, the tissue underneath is susceptible to cavities, root canals & even extractions. Sugar is an additional cavity causing issue, so consider rinsing your mouth after drinking soda, both diet & soda containing sugar.

How would you stop me from drinking so much diet coke?

Wean yourself: Wean yourself slowly. You don't want to go through caffeine withdrawal. Start by cutting your normal amount in half, in a few days to a week, cut the amount you take in half again. I recommend replacing it with water, since water is the healthiest. There are alternatives such as green tea or coffee which also contain caffeine and antioxidants.

What would be healthier to drink - diet coke or gatorade?

What would be healthier to drink - diet coke or gatorade?

Diet soda: My vote would be gatorade if done in moderation. There are studies that have shown that people who drink alot of soda are obese even if it is diet. The absolute right answer would be water. I usually tell my patients that if they eliminate liquid calories from their diet, that alone will help them drop significant pounds. Liquids pass through your stomach faster and do not keep you full.

Soda Addiction....: Use behavior modification techniques. Try keeping a journal or simply counting every time you drink soda instead of water or unsweetened tea. (avoid artificial sweeteners, too since they may raise your cravings for sweets).Coke also has caffeine which is an addictive substance.Hypnosis also can help. Good luck, let me know how it helps.
