Quitting Caffeine in Early Recovery
If you do decidedly want to give up caffeine, it is certainly better to do so slowly, over time than in one fell swoop. Quitting caffeine cold turkey (especially if you drink a fair amount on a daily basis), can actually result in a range of mild or moderate – but excessively annoying – withdrawal symptoms. Striving for complete abstinence is always a good idea, but if you can’t make it through the morning without a hot cup of joe, try not to sweat the small stuff and commit to laying off the caffeine once your sobriety is stable and has been intact for at least a full year.
If you feel you are ready to give up caffeine altogether, or you have been instructed to do so by a healthcare professional, we have compiled a list of 8 beneficial tips that will help you quit caffeine long-term.
