So I gave up Diet Pepsi 99% and now drink only Diet 7-Up, Canada Dry Ginger Ale, A&W Creme Soda and Squirt. All very good, and no caffeine.
I am a coffee-holic too Sass. Not a whole lot, just 2 mugs a day in AM, but I must have it E V E R Y morning. I use Sweet'n'Low only in coffee and tea, and have totally lost that pre-rhythmic beat in my heart (again, not as serious as it sounds).
My cardioilogist showed me studies where it said Saccharin was found to be "probably the safest food additive ever created," which is where I got that quote.
I'm weird though...no sugar in my coffee...which is a good thing. Although, I do like a little half and half in it.
