I quit Sweet 'n Low cold turkey by switching to Truvía and find it tastes a lot better in my numerous cups of coffee. I've also increased my intake of fruits.

I quit sweet N' Low as well. I am using sugar in the raw in my coffee. I tried trivia and did not like the taste. They make Stevia in the raw too. This is my 3rd day W/O sweet N low. I was using this for over 20 years.

Is it hard to break the habit? I've never found one I liked the taste of to use more than once.

It was for me, not so much with diet soda, I quit that cold turkey in 2012 but loved my sweet n low in my coffee. Now I use raw sugar.

It didn't take long for me to get used to Stevia. The only problem with it is that it doesn't dissolve as well as sugar.
