Even i like coffee very much and it is difficult to give up once addicted. Earlier i used to take two cups in the morning and two cups in the evening but now just one cup in the morning and sometimes one cup in the evening . instead i will take ginger tea in the evening which is tasty and healthy too

@kayshope Yes. i add shadow dried Senna (cassia) auriculata flowers, black pepper corns, cumin, and dry ginger , powder all of them nicely, and store it in a bottle. daily i will add 1/4 spoon to the hot milk withsugar, stir it and sip. it is good for health. ginger helps in digestion, removes gas from the stomach, cumin is good for pitha, pepper takes care of the cold, fever , throat infection and cassia is a very good herb which cures so many health problems and u can find its its medicinal properties in the net

Instead of giving up coffee you could try flavoring your coffee with cinnamon. Cinnamon helps regulate high blood pressure. Vinegar also helps as well. Take 1 tablespoon of vinegar mix it into warm water with honey to sweeten it and drink it 30 minutes before you eat every morning and at night before going to bed.

@kayshope I am doing alright. I also have high blood pressure. Of course mine is not mild. It is quite serious. Even with the cinnamon and vinegar daily I still have problems.

I'm with you, I wouldn't give it up either! I love my coffee. Maybe you could just cut back a tiny bit for now?

That is how my ex feels about smoking. As long as he can afford it he will smoke.

I probably wouldn't give up coffee, but in the circumstances I would probably cut the number back to about three.

Haha... I like the conviction there. Maybe it's the same thing goes for me. I'm not diagnosed with anything yet. But I'm not sure I can ever give up coffee.

I enjoy coffee, but I would give it up if the doctor suggested it.

Eat more fish, take fish oil capsules. Do a little meditation, it helps as well and would not mean giving up coffee.
