"You'll get headaches at first, but after a while you just feel so much better!"
How I did it: In order to stop drinking so much coffee, and caffeine in general, I made a New Year's resolution to do just that. Normally I don't stick to them, but I made an additional one along with that. I had been trying to give blood for the past year, and part of the reason why I couldn't was because my blood is too thin. The person testing my blood asked me if I drank coffee a lot, and of course I said yes. He told me that caffeine thins the blood, and if I ever hoped to give blood, I would cut out the coffee. So, for the sake of a higher purpose, I did!
Lessons & tips:
- Be strong! You are stronger than your addiction!
- You don't need coffee to wake up; it actually makes you feel worse after time.
- The headaches don't last very long.
- Will power
- Water bottles
- A strong support system
It took me 7 years.
It made me so happy!
