Life Without Coffee

From an ex-coffee addict:

I used to feel dull and tired every morning, and I woke up with a strong craving for coffee. Then I stopped drinking coffee entirely. It was difficult for a few days, but then the feeling of tiredness in the morning and the desire for coffee just went away. Now I wake up feeling alert, and with no desire at all for coffee.

So my experience backs up this research. Fatigue in the morning is actually a result of coffee addiction. Coffee is counterproductive to alertness in the long run. It gives you a short boost, but then alertness falls lower than before.Fortunately, it's possible to break the addiction in a few days with a little will power.
