Once again I am taking a week off of coffee. I am still drinking tea, but that has somewhat less caffeine than the standard coffee. Day three is usually the crux. The day when my body thinks, 'but coffee tastes good too, and you know it will make you feel better!' However, I fear the dependent feeling on any substance. So two or three times a year I go a week without coffee. It keeps my caffeine tolerance low, saves me a little money, and give coffee that much more of a kick when I do drink it again.
