Cute socks, Rachel!
I too have quit Diet Coke, and all other sweetners, except for a couple packets of Splenda each day in my tea. After all the reading I've done on the bad effects, I decided to give it a month, then decide. It's been two months now, and it seems to be going well.
Today, I had four packets of Splenda, tomorrow I hope to get it cut down to three, and stay there for a couple of weeks. Three cups of tea or coffee a day, then maybe down to one or none.
Anyway, keep up the good work, going off this stuff is difficult.
