I stopped drinking coffee for a week — and it made me physically ill

I love coffee—black coffee, specifically. Cream or sugar only interfere with the flavor of my beloved drink.

Before this experiment, I usually had three or four cups a day. This usually consisted of two before I left the house, another one or two at work, and then maybe one later in the afternoon if I needed a pick-me-up. My office is right above a coffee shop, so you could say I wasn’t exactly set up for success.

I’ve always wanted to break my caffeine habit but dreaded the withdraw I’ve read so much about. Aside from coffee, I don’t drink very much caffeine, so I knew this was going to be the epitome of “going cold turkey.” Here’s what happened when I tried to go without it for a whole week.
