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.

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.

(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.

You will not take in phosphoric acid that will tend to upset your mineral balance and cause you to pee out your bones. And you may save money and lose weight.See 2 more doctor answers
