Diet Pepsi Addiction

By August 19, 2010 - 10:35pm

I believe I am addicted to Diet Pepsi. I drink one right after another all day. I am taking medication that keeps my mouth dry and I am very thirsty. I don't like water unless it's icey cold, flavoured, and has seltzer added. Am I addicted to the seltzer or to Diet Pepsi or both? Thank you, Sunnie Murphy

Hi sunniemurf,
Thanks for your post!
I have heard of Diet Soda addictions. Is there anything else you can drink? I think flavored seltzer water may be a little healthier than Diet Pepsi. Have you tried any other non-bubbly refreshments that you could start small with and cut a soda or two and work toward eliminating all or most of the sodas eventually? Have you discussed your soda addiction with your doctor? They also may have some ideas to help get you moving in the right direction. I found this article on the EmpowHER website that may help:
Good luck and let us know how you're doing, or if you need to "talk" more about this.
