While in San Francisco, I found myself in a situation where having coffee was easier than finding tea, so I had half a cup. Weirdly, it didn’t create a whole atta control craving to have more. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, and it hasn’t. 2 years ago

As a final note on this goal, it’s been almost 30 days with black tea & no coffee, and it turns out this month I had almost no physical PMS symptoms. A day or two of feeling cranky, and that’s it. Pretty awesome! 2 years ago
How I did it: I'd been mulling it over for a week or two, and then ran out of coffee at home, so on a whim, I didn't buy more.
I replaced the coffee with English breakfast tea to stave off headaches -- probably overdid it, with 2-3 cups, compared to my one coffee.
I planned ahead to have tea available, like buying the kind I like and packing it for vacation.
This process is ongoing, and I'm not sure what my next goal is -- stop drinking caffeine altogether? Allow coffee occasionally? I think if I sometimes drink coffee, I'll easily drift back to drinking it daily. Also if I get into a situation at work where I have to come in early or work longer hours, I'll need to make sure good tea is available so I don't grab coffee on a whim.

Still coffee free. I’ve had some mild urges, not too bad.
The last 2 days I’ve had a lot of tea and then wasn’t able to sleep through the night. I think I need to pare it down. I definitely am feeling groggy in the mornings as a result.
A big inspiration for cutting down was that I felt i couldn’t feel what was going on in my body/breath; I feel a bit better, but also want to be more active. The yoga is helping, but so much of the day is sedentary… 2 years ago
Still drinking 2-3 cups of black tea a day and feeling oddly normal. I haven’t had a huge coffee urge yet, but it’s possible that’ll come barreling round the corner when I’m not expecting.
Also bought a bunch of liver-cleanse herbs in the East Village that I’m planning to incorporate into some type of new years ritual.
Overall, feeling not as zoned out as I was expecting. 2 years ago
I ran out of coffee and opted not to buy more.
This is day 2 of drinking English Bfast tea instead. I need 3 cups to stave off the headache, but it feels better than I expected. 2 years ago
I think this will need to involve a lot more aesthetic and ritual, like cool kettle, mug, etc., since tea is just NOT as interesting as coffee is to me. 2 years ago
this week had one coffee [which was half decaf];
and usually 1 black tea and one herbal tea.
it probably won’t get any better than this. if i can maintain this regimen, i’ll mark this as done. 3 years ago
i limited myself to 1 coffee per day, and drank one cup of tea per day at least [tried to stick to herbal, but if tired i had caffeinated] 3 years ago
I wish that coffee was good for me, are there at least some benefits to coffee? 5 years ago
I still make a lot of cups of tea that I don’t drink, but it’s soothing. And sometimes I drink coffee, but it’s rare. Woo tea boost! 6 years ago
I had been drinking tea in the evenings, but coffee was required in the mornings. And the stuff at work is just horrid. One morning I woke up and decided I wanted chai instead of coffee, so I took the tea in with me. I’ve had a few relapses (days where chai just doesn’t have the oomph to get me going), but for the most part I’ve stopped drinking coffee.
I seriously doubt I’ll ever completely decaffeinate, but I’ve certainly cut my level in half. And I’m much less jittery now. ::grins:: 6 years ago
Ok…I’ve got the tea – I even special ordered the tea leaves (not in bags) and have a special pot. Now it’s a matter of making it a habit. I do love coffee so. I just know the tea is so much better for you. But I love coffee. The smell, the taste. I can’t wait to go go Seattle..they have good coffee in Seattle. Maybe I should change my goal to drink more coffee. I mean I’m the type of person that get’s a warm, happy feeling inside when I see a Starbucks. Ok..focus on the tea. Tea is good. There are so many flavors to try. 7 years ago
I’m not cutting it out completely. “Everything in moderation” is what my mother always said, and I believe she was/is right. My more specific goal is to limit my coffee intake to 1 cup/day. That is so totally doable. 7 years ago
i never thought i’d see the day i’d brew myself a cup of lemon lift.

as my love of coffee is strong but it’s time to make the shift and give my central nervous system the break that it deserves. i have noticed much as i might like to deny that when i keep it to one or two cups of joe a day i’m less edgy and things seem to flow a little smoother sniff. 7 years ago
