The best way to quit coffee is by replacing it with something else.
The easiest way to quit the addiction of coffee is to replace it with another addiction.
See.. we humans are programmed to act upon things that make us feel good and run away from things that make us feel bad. Everything in your life is an addiction and they’ve become an addiction because they make you feel a certain way (reward). Eating is an addiction, working out is an addiction, drinking water, sex, etc. Coffee is just one of them.
Why is coffee an addiction?
Because it gives you energy! It makes you feel good!

Another foolproof way to quit the addiction to coffee is by fooling your brain.
Your brain right now is addicted to coffee and does everything it can to make you sip another cup. The good news is that you don’t have to quit it cold turkey and suffer all the withdrawal symptoms. Instead, you can still give your brain what it wants and decrease the amount gradually. This way the brain gets used to having less and less without noticing the intent of vanishing coffee out of your life!
How to do it…
This process might last a week or two but its results are almost guaranteed.
- The first day you start with your normal cup of coffee.
- The second day you have 3/4 of that same of coffee and dilute it with water.
- The third day you have 2/4 and add even more water.
And so on…. Until you end end up drinking JUST WATER.
Pretty easy huh? Now go try it if you really want to make coffee your bitch!
