I used to have a 4 or 5 Coke a day habit. I switched from Coke to Ginger Ale a long time ago because there is less caffiene and sugar in them, so you can step down a bit. Then I backed off the Ginger Ale slowly. I still get my caffiene from coffee, and if I go too late in the morning I'll get massive headaches from withdrawal. But I kicked the soft drink habit and in the process lost 15 lbs. If you want to shock yourself try adding up all the empty calories in those 5 daily Cokes. I might drink one soft drink a month now.
Oh, and if that doesn't do it, ask you dentist how quickly all that acid in the Coke is destroying the enamel in your teeth - not cavities, but the enamel. The only remedy for that is dentures or dental implants.
