My Experience Switching from Coffee to Tea
After drinking coffee every morning for 30 years, I never thought I would be able to give it up, a reader writes to Simple English News.
I tried going cold turkey before, but I was never able to kick the habit. The urge to have a cup of coffee was too great.
During a brief sickness earlier this year, however, I would wake up each morning without having the urge for a cup of coffee.
It has now been six weeks since I had my last taste of coffee and I feel much better and much less tense.
cold turkey: an sudden stop of usage, such as from a drug.
to kick the habit: to stop using something, ie, a drug.
urge: need, desire.
