How to stop my coffee addiction?
I HAVE A COFFEE ADDICTION
When I was younger I was never really a hot drink drinker, my soft spot was always milk. I used to drink pints and pints of the stuff usually with a Jammie Dodger as I am always partial to one of those as well. 🙂 It wasn’t until the first part of my Army career when my drinking habits changed and I stopped drinking milk and become addicted to Dr Pepper. How that happened I’ve no idea but I used to go through 500ml bottles of it per day.
Later on in my Army career I noticed everyone else drank “hot brew’s”. I thought I would never be a brew drinker thanks to my lack of ability to drink something when it is steaming hot. However, slowly I became quite happy with drinking a nice cup of coffee with two sugars. I blame my coffee addiction of Dr Pepper for the amount of sugar I have in a coffee.
Once the initial shock was over of drinking a hot drink, I started to NEED a cup of coffee and regularly had one in my hand even if I wasn’t drinking it. I am stil un-aware of whether this was down to boredom or because I had a coffee addiction. In my head it tastes REALLY nice.
FIRST THING ON A MORNING
The first thing I have on a morning is a cup of coffee, I don’t drink tea unless something has seriously gone wrong or there’s a major catastrophe and there is no coffee in the house/office. I don’t do this because I need “perked up” or I think it will help me get my head straight. I drink it because it tastes nice. Could I drink water? or milk for that matter, yes I am sure I could but I cannot stop myself from drinking coffee which bring me on to my next point.
ANY HELP WELCOME
I need to find a sure way I can stop drinking coffee, preferably for good to stop my coffee addiction. I would think it is doing horrendous things to my body internals never mind my dentals. I have managed before to stop drinking bottles of coke, needless to say I went through a few days of headaches, the shakes and not being able to sleep properly but once I stopped I felt sooo much better.
So if anyone knows of a way to curb my coffee addiction or possibly reduce the amount that you are drinking, please please get in touch!
