Default One day coke free

Well, I've made it one day without any coke. As I'm from the South, any carbonated beverage or soda is called coke. I used to drink 3 or more cokes a day so today has been a big milestone for me. I'm just hoping I can keep it up.

Way to go TatorTator. Being from Florida I know what you mean about it all being called Coke. I gave up carbonated drinks along time ago and aside from an occasional Barqs if I'm in a restaurant I can't stand the taste anymore. I only drink water at home. I do have my 2 cups of coffee every morning and an 8 oz. O.J. Keep up the good work, soon you won't miss it at all.

That is great! I am also from Alabama, so the Southern slang is familiar around here as well.

I also gave up Coke on Nov 30. I was seriously addicted to Coke Zero and the problem with that is that it would be all that I drank, no water. I knew it was a problem for me so I have not had one since. The only carbonated beverage I allow myself is flavored (sparkling) water. I feel so much better. My stomach and my kidneys thank me.

I had to laugh when I read this post because I too am from Alabama, just transplanted to Canada, and I was having the conversation with a neighbor the other day about all soda/pop being called a coke. Too funny...But I do understand the addiction to the beverages. You have one day under your belt. Make it the first day of the rest of your life.

Good job! Eliminating calories you drink is a REALLY great way to lose weight. I've been trying to give up on coffee - or at least, huge cups of 2/3 coffee and 1/3 cream and sugar...

Congrats on your soda-free day!! I hope today goes just as well!!

Hypra - as for coffee, a year ago I cut back to using whole milk instead of half & half. I really can't taste the difference at all and it saves a lot of calories. I use 4oz whole milk in my 16oz of coffee and it's 73 calories, vs 157 calories if I used the half & half.

Also from Alabama, and yes it's all Coke to me too. I gave up sugar/caffeine-carbonated beverages (my personal fave was Mt. Dew) in 1999, gave up all diet soft drinks in 2008, and honestly I do not miss them at all. You will feel so much better once you get it all out of your system! I don't miss sweet tea either!

congrats!! I stopped drinking it a while ago and feel so much better.

I am from colorado/florida and grew up calling them all coke as well lol. When I moved up here to New York with my DH & everyone calls it pop. It was so weird to me lol. And now I ended up calling it pop too and my sister teases me lol

I didn't know about the use of the word "coke" in the south until I got to college and had some Texan classmates. That's also around the time that I realized most of the country (heck, most of the English-speaking world) says "soda," so I stopped saying "pop" like I grew up with.

I'm still trying to shake some of my Western NY accent, but I'm getting there slowly, lol.
