Quitting coffee

I have decided to end my relationship with coffee, but I didn't realize how addicted I was to caffeine. Any tips for giving up the habit?

    Every one of the points on this shitty corporate slop you posted is either a positive, a blatant lie, or the side effect of mixing caffeine with prescription medicine.

    Every time you desire coffee, go get a different drink that you enjoy. Do this consistently every single day over the course of a month or two and you can rewire your brain to change your desire. I quit pop by making a cup of green tea every time I thought about drinking pop, before long I was only thinking about drinking green tea, and now I mainly just drink water.

    The thing that nobody seems to want to think about is that coffee is like sugar in the sense that it provides a lot of energy for it's volume but even worse because it functions throughtout the day. If you're trying to wean off it you'll feel like shit even if you get enough sleep and exercise and sunlight and all that because you've conditioned your body to a quick energy boost and if you take that away matching the energy intake will require that you eat a lot more food than you usually do until your body gets used to it.

      Caffeine provides no energy. It shuts down the reception of tiredeness.

      just switch it up and only drink coffee a couple of days a week and only one cup. i switch between coffee, herbal teas, green tea and black tea and purposefully manage my caffeine intake to avoid addiction. I'm a particularly big fan of cardamom coffee because it negates the bad breath effect, I also steep a coarse grind in a tea diffuser, or do coldbrew.

      There has been no study ever that has shown coffee is bad for you. I know 3 centenarians and all of them are daily coffee drinkers. One is 104 and drinks 4 cups of trucker sludge tier black coffee per day.

      coffee isn't like sugar moron. it provides no metabolic energy unless you add sugar or milk/creamer. caffeine is a stimulant. it only makes you *feel* like you have more energy.

    I quit briefly in college. Cold turkey. Felt like I was dying for a week. Once the week was over I felt fine. One week isn't so bad anon, just make sure you don't have much going on.

      The actual physical withdrawal of caffeine lasts like 8 hours to 48 hours.
      The rest of it must have been psychological or the endocrine system readjusting or something

    only valid thing here is the sleep thing, and you can just drink early in the day, everything else is basically unsubstantiated

        I think that can only be true if you drinking coffee means you love starbucks milk drinks, caffeine is an appetite suppresant

    1. coffee is actually good for you unless you abuse it
    2. start drinking tea or mate, then quit those
    3. alternatively just quit gradually, you shouldn't have problems doing that for coffee. you don't need to quit cold turkey like you would with cocaine, tobacco and alcohol

    Reason #9: It's just a waste of money. It can taste good, and that's part of what you pay for, but the main reason you're consuming it instead of a cheaper beverage you also enjoy is simply because it's physically addictive.

    The entire conception that it gives you energy is completely BS if you consume it every day, instead you a forced to spend money on something you don't need in order to have the same amount of energy as a non-addict.

    And here's another reason: If you have completely, 100% given up caffeine for 2-3 weeks straight and you have a strong hit of it... holy shit, you feel absolutely amazing for the next few hours. It's easy to see how people become addicts based on their first experience with it. But even the second day in a row, this effect is severely weakened, and by the third day there's nothing, it's just part of your mandatory daily spending if you don't want to feel bad. Having the option to have 18-24 of those authentic 'caffeine-high' days a year is WAY better than having 365 days of being being held hostage by a drug that's effect you literally don't even notice until you try to quit.

      Coffee is quite literally the only drug I enjoy anymore.
      tobacco has always been kinda gross, I can't smoke weed without getting severe panic attacks. and any time I drink alcohol it's out of compulsion, not out of true enjoyment.
      but that true enjoyment? Washes over me when I'm relaxing in the morning having my cuppa. and that's all I have is the one in the morning.

      >Spend money [...] to have the same amount of energy as a non-addict
      This principle is true for nicotine, which addicts are forced to consume constantly throughout the day, but not for caffeine which users usually only take in the morning. A caffeine user will have more energy in the morning, and less energy in the evening, than a non-user. This is practical for people who prefer more energy for work from 9-5 and prefer less energy for relaxation from 6-12, even though it balances out overall.

      The difference is that caffeine is habit-forming but not addictive. There's an important distinction.

    I recently quit coffee cold turkey. I was drinking a pot a day, it was just too much. The physical withdrawal was over in a couple days, but my body had lost its ability to regulate energy without relying on coffee to instruct it to be energetic. It took almost a month before I started feeling 'normal' again, just sleeping all the time constantly because I had no energy. I still haven't gotten 100% over it, my mornings are real sluggish still three months later.

    Still super happy I quit. Coffee makes me an angrier person.

    Try weaning off by taking caffeine pills while decrementally reducing the dose until and drink decaffeinated coffee until you no longer feel automatic cravings

    I'd wake up every day and drink a pot of coffee, I ended up buying caffiene pills and taking one a day in the morning for a couple weeks to wean myself off.
