Us Swedes tend to drink a lot of coffee. We even have a word for the act of gathering to have coffee and a bite to eat, fika. So I used to be quite a coffee drinker, but I recently decided that I don’t want to be dependent on anything. I want to choose what I consume, not be unconsciously programmed to need something.
The morning cup and the ones I had in social gatherings were the toughest ones for me to give up, but these tips are what helped me quit coffee – for good.
