I didn’t realize this until I ran out of it. I haven’t had a diet coke in over 24 hours and I have a massive headache and I am really tired. I have tried coffee to perk me up but that just gets me too jittery. This sucks. I could run to the store to buy some but frankly I want to know how long I can go before the monkey starts screaming. I can also use this as the excuse for why I am so cranky. It’s really hard to find anything even mildly amusing to say when you are going through withdrawal.
* an hour after I posted this I was out of the game. I felt like Kramer.
The only time I go without a Diet Coke is when I am sleeping…then I dream about it.
Have you tried chocolate covered espresso beans?
They say it’s a gateway bean to harder caffeine addictions but I say…BITE ME!
I had a similar issue a few years back… I can feel your pain!
MA, Dreaming about Diet Coke is interesting. Usually around five I switch to Cabernet so I don’t dream a whole lot.
Christa, Just pass me the chocolate covered crack, at least I might lose some weight. Right now I am forced to drink real Coke, the kind with sugar, and I am jumpy and twitchy and I know I won’t be able to eat my little Christmas Reese’s Cups because I had one Coke. And it’s not even noon here yet.
Joanna, So how did you get the monkey off your back or did you just run out for a bit like me never really planning on quitting cold turkey?
When it comes to caffeine, I am most certainly NOT master of my domain.
I gots to have it.
(I love Christa’s suggestions; just be sure you don’t fall into the hard stuff.)

Good ol’ caffeine addiction! My friend had to get meds from the doctor because her withdrawl headaches got so bad. She’s never touching anything with caffeine again.
I haven’t even THOUGHT about going without a Diet Coke until I read this. Then I started shaking, so I don’t think I want to try it.
Awesome Seinfeld reference by the way. I could see you slapping down the $100 – “Well I’m out!”
My hubby is seriously addicted to Diet Coke. I won’t confess the number of 2 liters we go through in a week. Like MA Fat Woman said earlier, the only time without is when she’s sleeping – very true for hubby!
Diet Pepsi is my drug of choice. It hurts if I go too long without one.
I used to be addicted to diet coke… until I discovered liquid crack. 😉
I don’t like Diet Coke. Try Coke Zero.
