Fighting with caffeine addiction. My replacement beverage is Matcha Green Tea with Homemade Almondmilk and a bit of 70% cocoa chocolate..
Caffeine is a drug, and like any drug, in order to free yourself from addiction, you have to be committed to your plan of action, and be ready for the withdrawal symptoms and a serious dip in your energy levels.
Some of the reasons to quit caffeine are:
* Increasing hypertension risks * keeps the liver busy from filtering other toxins * tooth decay * weakened bones * addiction/dependence * causes anxiety * a cycle of hyperactivity and/or inability to focus, followed by a subsequent "crash" * disrupted sleep habits * may interfere with weight loss and has been linked to hypoglycemia * financial costs to support caffeine purchases * caffeine dehydrates your body and can make you gain weight * a desire for a healthier pregnancy * decreased libido or sexual performance
