Giving up coffee is much easier than I expected. When I was a student, I worked in a dementia ward of a local hospital. The patients were nice enough (some of them). But they did mot know how to dress, how to go to the toilet, and whether they have had a meal or not.
But they sure knew if they had had coffee. There was a coffee break every three hours, and if the coffee was not on time, you could hear the level of noise rise in the wards. Their bodies required coffee.
I was afraid that my body would be the same, but I do not have any withdrawal symptoms. Perhaps because I do not make the coffee the same way (boiling it in a pot). So I will continue without coffee for a while - my blood pressure is lower, which is what I wanted to achieve.
