Do You Drink Regular Coke Or The Diet Coke?

I was just wondering if you are still drinking regular Coke or have you switched to the Diet Coke? I have never been a big fan of Coke, I used to have a few bottles here and there until they came up with the Diet Coke. Then I started to drink a little more. But now, I would like to quit the whole thing and find it difficult to do. I guess the only way is to quit cold turkey. Not to bring it into the house at all.

I don't drink either, but if I had to choose, it would be the regular coke.

When I was younger I used to enjoy regular coke, but the past 10 years or so, not at all. I find that the taste is unappealing and leaves a heavy feeling after I consume it. I'd prefer ice cold water.

I do not drink coke at all, I do not like the taste, I only drink water, no soda at all. Diet coke contains aspartame that is surely not a healthy ingredients. Try to get rid of the habit of diet coke.

@marlina Really, on both statements. I never touch them due to them being evil. Standard ones are so full of sugar I can feel my waistline expanding and my teeth rotting as I'm drinking them. The diet ones tend to be full of aspartame, a substance that splits scientific opinion as to whether or not it's a massive carcinogen. I'm not taking the risk. Any carbonated drink, including sparkling water, isn't good for your teeth! All in all not worth the bother!

Good idea. However, what are you going to fall back on when you go into caffeine withdrawal? I don't drink coke, and very little Pepsi.

We used to drink coke with our pizzas, but now we have completely stopped and have lemon juice instead. I prefer fruit juices to coke. We were getting addicted to it too much. So I took a stand and completely stopped it from coming into our house and out too....

I like regular coke, but I'm trying to drink less pop. Too much sugar and calories.

Yes, too much sugar in Coke for sure.

Too much sugar is never good, but I still drink regular Coke. It's safer than drinking diet because diet soda has artificial sweeteners, and Aspartame is linked to Alzheimer's disease. Artificial sweeteners are helpful to diabetics, but they are harmful in the long run. Far more so than sugar.

@marlina probably not, to some degree we need caffiene in our bodies. About 300MG's a day is okay for you and not unhealthy and that is about two 12oz cans. Yeah I'm the crazy facts about that. Regular soda is a lot better for then diet soda. Some diet soda have less caffeine or none but has more sugar to or some other junk your body doesn't need. A soda streamer is 50 times better to us then both regular or diet because it has less calories and less sugar to your drinks. It also can do tea's and waters instead of soda. We bought one this past Christmas and it has saved us money for sure.

I like the regular Coke and prefer the bottled one which tastes better than those in cans.
