From the age of 12 to the age of 40, I was a hardcore Mt. Dew addict. No kidding, no exaggeration, I put away several 20-oz bottles a day of the stuff. in 2009 I decided to quit cold turkey, picked a date, and did it. I am now 43 and have had maybe two indulgences of Mt. Dew since then. Some say it's all about willpower, I say it's all about being ready to make the change. Either you are or you aren't. If you are, then quitting is fairly easy. Good luck, if I did it then I know you can do it too. Commit and follow through.

What worked for me was to start cutting it with water. I drank way too much diet coke and was feeling shaky about cutting it out so I started by using 3/4 pop 1/4 water and increased the water by a 1/4 a week. I didn't feel the headaches or I'll effects I thought I would and it made quitting easy :)
