Made it!

I don't have any urge to drink it again either. I've tried a few brands of decaf, some are pretty bad. Lavazza is still my favourite.

Even more than high-maintenance I think I'd have to get over the fear of the barista questioning the presence of testicles in my trousers ordering that one....


That's hysterical...

Btw, my coffee maker broke a couple of days ago and I'm having a hard time...as soon as some of this damn snow melts I'm going out to get a new one though...

Congrats Nicola...don't know how you can do it...

Giving up coffee was a must for me, because I was diagnosed with IBS and had a small ulcer. I used to drink it like it was water, had to stop when I noticed something was wrong. I'm two years strong without it, and I drink it only on occasion.

Wow...I must say that I have been so inspired by these stories that after this morning I intend to give up coffee for the rest of the year...

Not sure if I will actually make it...but, I'll give it a shot...

Yes, for health reasons.

Try and take my red wine away, and that's a whole different story! angry9

Ahhh...I almost made it the whole afternoon, but guess I'm just not that strong...

Coffee is part of my writing process, and I'm starting to write again...
If I were to give up coffee, I'd have to give up about ten other things...

I'm not a big coffee drinker, so I decided to try one of these green tea lattes. I just get the regular one because I like fat, love foam, and hate sugar-free sweeteners. Anyway, I'm completely addicted to these. It's kind of ironic that a thread about giving up an addiction led to my own. I'll be sending you the bill, Doll.

They are better than coffee though, I agree!

I was given a full strength coffee this morning by mistake. I am now shaky and feel awful.

It's amazing what your body gets used to.

Heavy heavy fuel...sounds like you could use some cigarettes. I can spare a few. You'll be right, in no time!

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

Thanks, but I've never smoked in my life (other than a few spliffs, a long long time ago).

Hey Nicola
Just across your coffee thread. Congrats by the way :) Sorry though to hear you had coffee. Hope you are feeling better.

I myself drink a latte maybe five times a week. Just one I promise lol.

There are some things in life too good to give up and I am afraid coffee is one of them! Having spent a good deal of time In France, Italy and Spain - where coffee is a way of life. Something that Starbucks will never understand

I get sick from having coffee so I've taken it out of my diet.

Very rarely, I'll crave some but will remind myself what it physically does to me.

Well I hope I never figure out

Damn it!! I brewed a pot when I arrived home, sat down, and thoroughly enjoyed it on my patio!

If only I had known .....

I like having vices! They would have to pry that cup of caffeinated from my cold dead fingers! I also plan to drink cold beer and smoke cigars until I die. And ride motorcycles very fast!!!! My tombstone might read "His vices killed him, but he loved them so!" Also, I'd like one of those 'nudie silhouettes' engraved on my tombstone!!! Though I still want to be cremated and scattered over Sanford Stadium 'tween the Hedges."

I don't miss it at all actually. The physical problems it was causing, by far outweigh the positives.

It was easy for me to do, I am rather strong willed. Giving up wine on the other hand, that's an impossibility.
