    Drink tea and take tylenol for about a week for the headaches.

    I'm trying to stop smoking and losing weight as we speak. Now, I'm tackling coffee.

    the dreaded 3 way boots, good luck, drinking large amounts of ice water whenever I craved a cigarette helped me quit 4 months ago, maybe try the same when you crave coffee

    Going for the golden ring, eh boots? Good luck. It's a tough challenge but the positives are incredible, if you can succeed.

    My advice:
    * Drink tons of water
    * Find something like Gatorade or another fruit drink as a substitute
    * Find a sweet-tasting but healthy fruit of some kind. The taste is good, but if it's sullied with coffee, doesn't do much for your taste buds.

    I had someone tell me that it's easier to stop smoking crack than it is to stop smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee or losing weight. They might be right.

    What they're finding is that coffee's actually good for ya, bootsie.

    Helps with depression, metabolism, blood sugar regulation, weight....

    If you're drinking too much, slowly introduce some half-caf for awhile. You can scale it down and up as needed.

    You can also try this trick I learned from my bro, a doctor. Drink a full, cold glass of water with your morning coffee. It makes the caffeine "buzz" last longer. That will help you drink less....

    I haven't had a drink of coffee in four days. I actually feel calmer. If I can keep it up, my next task may be chocolate but that might be asking for too much too soon for my freaked out system to handle.

    Start slipping vodka into your coffee. Add a little more vodka and a little less coffee each week. By summer, you'll be completely free of the coffee habit.
