• How to Break a Coffee Addiction (Vlog)

    Posted on June 28, 2013 by Whitney Fretham in diet, food, healthy, healthy eating, philosophy, vlog.

     

    If you’re like most other Americans, you may enjoy a certain beverage every morning as a daily “pick-me-up.” The ol’ cuppa Joe. 

    I’m not exempt from the majority on this one. I LOVE my coffee, and enjoy it in many ways: just black, espresso, Americano, cappuccino, latte, sweetened, unsweetened, creamer, spices, and even iced.

    Yes, I enjoy coffee.

    But I don’t enjoy it every single day. And I’m not addicted anymore!

    At the early part of last year, I used to think I wasn’t addicted but just LIKED my coffee and could quit anytime. After going cold-turkey for a bit, subbing green tea even, I had the most brain-splitting headaches and was super tired and crabby. Ha! NOT addicted? I was totally kidding myself there.

    Since breaking the addiction, I still enjoy my coffee a few times per week, but don’t feel horrible without it. (I do feel like I can FLYYYYYY when I drink it, though! LOL.) Over the past year, I have found several things helpful in replacing this addiction with healthier and happier habits. 

    I hope you find this video helpful if you’re a coffee addict! 

    Here is a link to the brewed cocoa I mentioned: http://www.criobru.com

    I drink iced black decaf coffee so it the flavor I like…not the caffeine, but I could definately use suggestion on diet soda! I can not live without my diet soda

    Hey Whit! Great vlog. I’m currently working through my relationship with coffee. I’d love to hear you discuss how you and your husband create balance in a home where you both have different eating preferences. My partner and I have different perspectives when it comes to a vegan kitchen.
