Still Winning Against Diet Dew


A month ago, 13 Dec 2013, I decided to get off Diet Dew, I’ve been drinking on average 12 cans of Diet Dew a day for nearly 10 years.  And straight up Pepsi before that.  To make matters worse, I was raised drinking soda and have never been into drinking water.

All along I knew it could not be good for me, but in the last 6 months it really started to worry me about the damage I may be doing to my body.  I felt reasonable certain that I was affecting my health, so I quit nearly cold turkey.  See the original post here.

Although I’ve given it up, for the most part, I still have one Diet Dew in the morning to get my blood moving (I just don’t like coffee) and one on the drive home from work.  But other then that and an occasional soda while we dine out….I’m Diet Dew and soda free.

And it has not been that hard.  I’m drinking a lot more water, I’ve lost 3 to 4 pounds and feel very good.

Diet Dew, you do not have a hold on me no more!


  • Nice job, Brian! It can be hard cutting out those things we loved, even if we knew they were bad for a.

    Great to hear. I try to cut mine back, because I know it’s not great, but not as good as you’re doing. Part of the problem is I need more sleep, the other part is I enjoy the flavor.
