How to Reduce your Addiction to Coffee

Coffee is actually a very healthy drink, if you consume it with moderation. It contains a lot of antioxidants, which are good for your body.  For someone that doesn't have any health issues, like high blood pressure, one or two cups of coffee every day shouldn't cause any problems. However, if you use to drink a lot of coffee cups every day, the caffeine from that drink will have a lot of unwanted effects on you. The excess of caffeine makes you hyperactive and dehydrated. You're unable to function during the day without more and more coffee, and the caffeine also affects your sleep. You're unable to rest properly during the night, so the next day you'll drink even more coffee. If you reached that point, you're addicted to coffee and you need to do something to reduce that addiction.

 

The first rule is to drink plenty of water. Drinking coffee dehydrates you, and the symptoms of dehydration are headaches, tiredness and irritability. You should start the day with one cup of coffee. A moderate amount of coffee is okay to drink. However, during the day, you shouldn't have another one. Every time you feel like having coffee, you should switch it to water. This way, your body will hydrate and in time, you'll get rid of many of caffeine addiction symptoms.  Even if you feel lethargic and tired, avoid the coffee. Trading coffee for energy drinks is not a solution either – you're simply changing the subject of your addiction.

 

Plant and dried fruits infusions are extremely efficient in helping you reduce addiction to coffee. Certain combinations, like dried eglantine, apple or pineapple infusions with some green tea leaves added, are great for fighting coffee addiction. Those delicious, hot drinks are very rich in antioxidants and vitamin C and help you keep high energy levels in a gentle, natural way, without making you hyperactive.

 

Sometimes, you lack energy and you are tired. You fight those symptoms with yet another cup of coffee. Well, that's not the best strategy. A lot of times, tiredness comes from the fact you're not eating enough or you're not eating the right foods. You wake up in the morning and you drink a cup of coffee, without anything to eat. Then, you go to work and expect your body to function well. It's only natural to have a low energy level during the entire day if you don't eat in the morning. You should start your day with a healthy breakfast, composed of whole cereals, light proteins and vegetables. This way, your body will have enough energy until lunch time and you'll reduce your appetite for coffee.

 

Addiction for coffee is often associated with addiction for sugar. This happens if you have your coffee with two or three teaspoons of sugar every time. Once the sugar and caffeine rush is over, the tiredness and lack of energy will come back even worst. So, cutting your coffee intake is not enough. If you associate coffee with lots of sugar, you also have to reduce sugar. You can replace your regular cup of extra sweet coffee with a fresh fruit, a glass of water or an unsweetened cup of green tea.
