I understand your dilemma as I've been hooked on coffee as much as you have, albeit in lesser amounts (I think). But the action is the same, and for me, 1 cup a day was becoming seriously phsychologically/physically addictive and depleting. In fact, I didn't feel good at all drinking it, and could not understand why I still wanted to and 'needed' to.
Then it somehow dawned on me that when I wanted coffee, it was either because I was hypoglycemic, needed energy or was low on minerals. Miss H has been talking about juicing and getting enough minerals to fulfill your needs- caloric and otherwise (i.e healing and cleansing) and I know she is correct. And I know that about a year ago, when I became increasingly dependant on coffee, I was really needing greens. And minerals. And nutrition. I was just too overwhelmed, toxic and tired to make a glass of juice. :S
So that being said, every morning this week, I've done the Liver Flush drink in the morning. My first insinct is to go towards coffee- but I resist. I make my drink, I wait the 20 min, then I have a ginger tea- and I tell myself that if I want coffee, I can have it after that. And you know what? About an hour later, I want food. I realize I need fuel, not coffee. So I make a juice or a smoothie. And that's been my routine. And I haven't had coffee yet:)
Am I saying this is why you crave it/drink it? I don't know. But I can't help wondering if our addictions are really just our bodies way or crying out (in any way they can) for nutrition.
