The physical urge will decrease over weeks of fasting and around 21 days the body will without physical addiction. During this time the urge to smoke will increase and decrease. The psychological urges will remain for years and you will need to follow Joe’s advice to make it.

I recommend one cup of coffee for day one and two then quit. It stops the headaches that can last for 3 days. Quitting from one cup of coffee will not cause headaches.

By: Joe Markus Wed, 15 Oct 2008 10:35:18 +0000 I’d concentrate on the cigarettes before the coffee….


As a matter of fact, forget about the coffee for now and just quit smoking.

The only way to quit is cold turkey. Seriously. After smoking for 15 years, I tried the “weaning-off” approach, and it never worked. Stop smoking, altogether ASAP, and you need to find new smokeless places to hang out that you didn’t go before. Get yourself a box of nicotine gum and chew.

Everyone’s different, but after about a month…only a single month, you begin to lose the urges, somewhat, and you fill that time with other more useful activities.

You’ll wonder how you ever found time for puffing in the first place.

Cold turkey is rough. For a heavy coffee drinker I recommend drinking 2 cups on the first day and 1 cup for the next two days before quitting. The headaches can be very intense. The same for cigarettes. I recommend the patch rather than smoking and cutting down the dose over 2 weeks. Make sure it is a juice fast. Water fasting will be hell.

By: margysd Sat, 27 Sep 2008 00:40:37 +0000 I am currently doing a 30 water fast to break caffeine and nicotine addiction, heal some aches in my body and to loose weight. I was wondering how long it will take to break the caffeine addiction and how I should go about it. Should I just stop drinking the coffee completely, or will the desire subside as I get further into the fast? Similarly, what should my approach be with smoking? Does the desire for cigarettes subside after around day 20? Thanks.
