What I Learned From Quitting Coffee After 15 Years Of Daily Consumption

A Comfort Zone Challenge

What eventually sparked the idea to give up coffee for a while was something unexpected.

It was only after writing a story about stepping out of one’s comfort zone that I decided I could do that: I could make myself a little uncomfortable and stop drinking coffee. For the sake of a higher goal, one further down the path of my life, living healthy and avoiding consuming stuff that might not be good for me.

Thus, while writing about the idea in my diary on Monday morning (26th of March), I drank up the mug of coffee that stood beside my notebook on the table, knowing that this would be my last one. At least for a while.

No more coffee. Cold turkey. Just as I did it when I stopped smoking years ago. Whenever I thought about drinking a coffee, I simply drank a glass of water or made myself a cup of tea instead.
