I like a little bit of coffee with my cream and sugar. Even half and half with sweetener isn't drinkable. I'm glad you're sticking it out though! Keep up the good work.

I'm trying the coffee without stuff ! I either use just 1 splenda, or 1 tbls heavy cream, but not both... it's not great, but I'm going to have to acquire a taste for black coffee...

Hi Buffy - I understand your feelings. also experienced that we can get used to almost anything. Instead of cutting out the sweetener completely, why don't you go with a hint of it. If I am out and have to buy coffee at DD or so they always look kind of strange at me when I tell them to ad 1/2 Splenda to the medium coffee *haha*. That is almost too much for me. I just gave my use of sugar and sweetener a thought. I can't remember when I bought the last sugar, I guess sometimes last year since I use it only when I bake or cook something for others. Artificial sweetener, both packages, the packed Splenda and the granulated are sitting in the pantry for at least a year as well. You can do it, I just don't know if it is right to go the hard way or better to reduce it slowly but surely.
