Fortunately, I had already weaned myself off much of the caffeine when I was pregnant. After I stopped nursing, I added the caffeinated cokes back a little at a time, but was mostly drinking caff-free Coke. By the time IBS hit full-force, I was probably having 6-7 cans per day on a normal day. When I decided to quit, my battle was more with intense cravings, rather than withdrawal headaches.

Even 2 years later, I still miss coke on occasion. I will never go back, though... Within less than a week of quitting cokes altogether, I went from constant nausea and D many times a day, to only 3-4 bad days a week... cut my symptoms in half!! Following the rest of the diet (and addressing underlying anxiety/depression) fixed the rest.

When I do have an intense craving now, I sometimes have one little sip, but the indigestion that lasts for the rest of the afternoon is enough to curb any more cravings for a while...
