    One cup in the morning with coconut oil, clarified grass fed butter and cocoa powder.

    3-4 Cafe Americanos daily. Some black others with half/half. Love it!

    Just quit a month ago. Before that, I had one 12oz. cup daily, brewed with freshly-ground single origin beans that I roasted at home every week. Loved drinking it, but not good for my sleep/energy.

    Yes I do, but not daily.

    My daily caffeine of choice has become yerba mate. Blast me all you want for it, but that stuff is magical.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

    I am trying hard to quit. I have been making a cold brew concentrate for a few months that I love especially as the weather gets warmer. It is probably 2-3x stronger than a typical cup of coffee but I dilute it a little with ice. I normally drink it with 2 tablespoons of organic heavy cream. The problem is I started with an 8 ounce serving and now it has turned into a 16-20 oz. serving per day. I find that I am craving the coffee more than breakfast or lunch. When I try to go a day without it the headaches and withdrawal symptoms hit me hard. Not to mention I feel a lot more bloated with coffee. I don't think its the coffee per se that is causing the bloat but most likely the cream. Either way, I find it hard to consume coffee without some cream. I especially don't like the fact that I can't go a day without drinking it. Because of these reasons I am trying to quit but I know it will be very difficult as I have done it a few times in the past and always came back to it

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

    One morning mug espresso with a teaspoon of coconut oil blended in daily. A second one more often than not. Very rarely a third one. When I have very fresh butter in the house, I use that instead of the coconut oil.

    I'd recommend looking into DLPA and/or L-Tyrosine. Check out this article: How to Quit Coffee

    I've taken breaks from coffee several times over the past four years, and DLPA has been a HUGE help. This, however, has been the only time I've quit where I don't intend on drinking it again. I weaned myself off over a week and then took 1,000mg of DLPA 2x per day for about a week after. I had a headache for half a day and felt kinda tired for two, but it was nowhere near the debilitating withdrawals I've read about.
