Dear Gary,

It has been months since I released my forty year addiction to coffee.  I had tried to stop drinking coffee many times before and wanted to wait to see whether it really worked this time before posting this letter... and yes, about nine months later, I can safely say it did.

I have been drinking coffee for most of my life, not realizing how addictive it was.  For the past 8 years I have tried to break the habit several times.  I do not believe that 1 or 2 cups of coffee a day are bad for you.  However, I was unable to function without my morning "kick".  In the evening, I needed coffee to make sure I could sleep through the night.  If I did not drink a cup of coffee before going to sleep, I would wake up with the worst coffee withdrawal headache which would prevent me from going back to sleep, unless I got up to make myself coffee at 2 am.

My situation was starting to get ridiculous.  Here I was, working as a Natural Health Consultant, needing coffee fix to sleep through the night.  I knew of many EFT successes with regard to addictions, but a part of me was afraid to apply it.  Every time I tried stopping coffee before the pain was unbearable and nothing helped.  And what if EFT does not work on me? I would be so disappointed on top of it.

However I had scheduled a workshop on addictions and anxiety and how could I honestly teach that being addicted myself?  I started tapping.

Even though I am afraid it won't work for me…

Even though I would be so disappointed if the tapping does not work, so I’d rather not start…

It made me feel better, but I still needed some time.  A few days later I conveniently forgot to have my nighttime coffee.  As usual, I woke up at 2 AM with a severe headache so I started tapping:  Even though I have this huge coffee headache…  The next thing I knew I was awakened by my alarm clock.  The tapping had allowed me to go back to sleep and I woke up in the morning pain free.  In the kitchen the habit of making my morning coffee took over, however I caught myself in time and started tapping:

Even though I crave my coffee fix…

Even though I need my coffee in the morning…

Even though I cannot wake up without coffee in the morning…

Even though I am afraid I will get a headache if I do not have coffee now

Even though I am a slave to coffee…

After a few rounds of that I finished with:

I choose to release this coffee addiction … I am fully awake and full of energy … I am totally relaxed about drinking no coffee.  

I felt great after the tapping.  During the next 48 hours I occasionally tapped on some neck tension, which usually indicated a severe coffee headache coming on:

Even though I have this tension in my neck, and I know what that means …

Even though I am afraid the headache is coming now …

The tension never turned into a headache, and besides that I never experienced any withdrawal symptoms.  I am grateful I can now enjoy drinking a cup of coffee occasionally and that I have the freedom to choose.

Best wishes

Claudia Schecter, NHC
