TRYING to give up coffee

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

I love coffee I have loved coffee since I was about 6 years old. I drink over a pot a day, I love flavored creamer but stopped using that bc of the empty calories so I drink it black. Cutting out coffee will give me at the min. 24 calories a day to use on something healthy emoticon
I am hoping I caN DO IT. But already feeling sluggish. I have made a pot of green tea that has no calories in it. Even that warm liqid it is still hard bc I have loved coffee so much.
I think tomorrow I will make 4 cups of coffee for am and then a pot of tea so I am not so sluggish. does that sound good or should I TRY to give it up cold turkey like I was thinking I was going to do. Please give me strength to give a love up. emoticon emoticon

    About three weeks ago I decided to give up my Diet Mountain Dew that I have drank for every. I drank around 6-7 cans a day. I did start gradual, then went off complete. I was very, very difficult and I had alot of withdrawals from it. The headaches have finally gone away. I still get tired in the afternoon. I am hoping that will eventually go way too. I am so glad I did it. I miss the taste but will not go back. Keep trying! emoticon

    Only once have I given up coffee (and since relapsed with no current plans to go on the wagon again). I gave it up cold turkey and dealt with headaches, sluggishness, crankiness (well, maybe the people AROUND me dealt with the crankiness!). I wondered afterward if cutting back slowly would have reduced my symptoms.

Regardless, I wish you luck!
