    Thumbs up

    TFC fully supports this thread. And this one.

    Raised eyebrow at the lady who experienced extreme withdrawal symptoms after 48 hours of no caffeine and still wants to drink coffee... How on earth isn't that biofeedback to avoid an addictive poison?

    Give it a month (or two weeks even) I promise by then you will be sleeping better and be more naturally energetic without the requirement of an outside drug. The way people describe the comfort morning coffee gives them each morning is akin to a functional alcoholic or smoker describing their drug of choice. Do what you want I just think you'd be in better shape as a physical entity without the dependency and negative side effects of caffeine and I'm pretty sure you'd feel better as well. I double dog dare you to give it a shot! What do you have to lose? Probably some light headaches and discomfort. Is that worth potentially better sleep and lower cortisol for a couple of weeks? It could be! Try it out!

    I broke the coffee habit years ago. I know you are going cold turkey, but you might want to try an alternative. Whole Foods sells a chicory based coffee subsitute. I think it's brand name is Teccino. I drank that for about a year while withdrawing. You can almost fool yourself that you're drinking coffee, and the chicory and other herbs are nutrient rich.

    I still drink coffee, but I'm no longer addicted. I drink it about once a month, strictly for the drug i.e. if I've lost some sleep or have to make a long drive.

    By the way, all you folks who love coffee. Of course you do. It's a drug!!!

    I drink it for the taste nothing more nothing less. I feel the same whether or not I've had any.

    I've cut back on coffee -- just one cup daily now, and I feel fine. I do like sipping Raja's Cup instead, for that "hot and bitter liquid" pleasure.

    don't tell anyone but I'm Moltisanti :b
    this marks daily apple has been a great discovery for me, so much better than the men's health forum, the diet and lifestyle makes so much sense to me, i'm pretty new to it but its already done a serious number on my depression, it's pretty much gone now, can't wait for all the other benefits to kick in, my skin is a bit clearer though i am still really tired
    so you don't eat grains? i mentioned it in a thread there once and they all had a go at me for being dumb haha

    I've given up a lot of things, but I will never give up coffee. I drink coffee with organic pastured heavy cream and a pinch of truvia (it tends to bring out the flavor), and it is absolutely delicious. I usually drink it with some dark chocolate. I love the bitterness
    There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
    There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
    There is society, where none intrudes,
    By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
    I love not man the less, but Nature more...

    I gave up coffee for a full month about a year ago. Didn't feel any different except the lack of caffeine kick (which I can use some afternoons)..
