If, like me, you know you drink too much coffee, why not give it a rest for a while and see how it floats.
I drink 4 - 5 mugs in the morning. And feel the need to check how my blood pressure will react should I cut it out.
If you think nothing of warming up a nice bottle of sake in the morning, or lighting up a succession of cigarettes the moment daylight pricks your eyes, then the first method is called:
1. the Dr Stop!
That's it then. No more coffee. Ever.
2. the Half 'n half
Mix half your usual blend of coffee, with decaf for a while, to ease yourself gently into it.
3. the Switch to decaf
4. the Half arsed - I can't be arsed, approach
Resign yourself to giving up tomorrow/ next Monday/ some other time.
Me? I'm going for the Dr Stop! today.
Say hello wave goodbye, to my last cup of coffee (black, no sugar).
