Last week I gave up coffee for exactly five days. Let me tell you, it was not easy. I felt like a true addict. All the symptoms of a withdraw were there. I had terrible headaches, felt nauseous and I was sluggish and tired. However, after the 3rd-day things started to shape up. After the full five days, it felt so easy to simply say no to coffee.
I don’t know about you but I love the smell and taste of coffee, so I began to incorporate decaf coffee from my favorite coffee shop, Dr. Smood, into my diet. Although decaf still has a bit of caffeine (2-12 mg), it’s not as much as regular coffee (almost 95 mgs…yikes!). So if you’re having a hard time quitting coffee, the best advice I can give you is to just do it. Try it for five days, don’t even try decaf just quit it completely, I promise after the 2nd or 3rd day you’ll feel fine.
