I had a major coffee addiction too. My caffeine/coffee withdrawals was way worse than the "carb flu". But I am thankful that I quit cold turkey. Every now and then I may have some good quality organic decaf coffee but I use it as a reason to get in more heavy cream lol.

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.
