Coffee is a big part of our lives. From ubiquitous cafes to aisles of coffee offerings in stores, coffee is a very accepted part of our modern lives. But while it’s accepted, that doesn’t mean that people don’t want to kick it. Getting rid of your coffee addiction might sound like a great idea, but it can be an unpleasant experience.
Coffee offers us a ritual for the morning. The preparation, the rich smell, and the warm cup in our hands is a trigger for many of us that the day is about to start. Beyond giving up the ritual, the physical symptoms of quitting coffee are also quite unkind. Withdrawing from coffee can cause things like headaches, fatigue from the loss of the external stimulant, anxiety, trouble concentrating, depressed mood, irritability, tremors, and low energy. That’s a lot of misery for one little cup of coffee!
Withdrawal symptoms are what actually cause most people to give up and go back to drinking coffee. However, if you were to replace your coffee intake with another ritual, then you will be less likely to relapse.
So, what should you replace your coffee addiction with? Some people suggest tea, but it can be a hard shift for people used to the rich taste of coffee. This is why many people are turning to kratom coffee to bridge the gap. Kratom can produce a similar energy boost to coffee, which can limit the withdrawal symptoms you might experience.
The easiest way to prepare a hot cup of kratom coffee if to purchase high-quality kratom powder that you can mix directly into decaf coffee. Why use the decaf? Kratom may give the stimulation the coffee lacks, but it certainly doesn’t taste that great! A dollop of milk or milk substitute will also help cover the taste. You can also brew a tea from dried kratom leaves. Let it steep for about 20 minutes, and then add the tea to your decaf, and enjoy!
