    Hey - former Coke addict here! I couldn’t stand any diet soda, it tasted like medicine to me. When I was diagnosed with diabetes, I moved to diet, and I got used to it. I tried normal coke again, and it was way too sweet for me. Now I try to only drink water and sometimes diet sodas. My advice to you is to try the diet Dr Pepper, and if you don’t like the taste, add a bit of sugar to it. Every time you drink have it with a little less sugar, until you don’t add anymore.

    @tiki nailed it. Dr. Pepper Zero Sugar is my go to now. Coke No Sugar is my backup. I have totally left the diet soda aftertaste. Also, q lot of water.
