I, too, gave up soda cold-turkey after drinking Diet Coke on a large scale
daily.  After not drinking any for a couple of weeks, I bought one since I
was incredibly thirsty and there wasn't anything but a soda machine around.
I felt miserable all evening after drinking the Diet Coke.

Now I drink iced tea, water, and beer.
