How do you overcome a coffee addiction?

You should slowly start drinking de-caf coffee, and how you do that is by mixing "half-caf" (half-caffeinated) coffee grains/beans with regular coffee, and slowly increase the amount of half-calf you use over time, so that eventually, you're drinking ALL half-caf. At that point, you can decide to do the same thing with half-caf and de-caf. It will take a while, but it's better than going cold turkey (trust me, I've tried!) Otherwise you could TRY going cold turkey from coffee and switching to a caffeinated herbal tea, instead. It still has caffeine in it, but not quite as much as coffee. My problem (when I tried this) is that tea just didn't have the same effect on me as coffee did, which meant serious lethargy and lagging behind at work/school as a result. But if you do switch to tea, you have the benefits of getting antioxidants (found in herbal teas like Green Tea). Good luck!
