Coff(r)ee… March without coffee

Inspired with Leo Babauta and his book I decided to test his ZTD system and challenge it with drinking coffee habit which I would like stop just to check is my health will improve in some areas.
It’s not easy challenge for me because I love coffee to the bits…
I’m coffee drinker who like to start day with morning coffee and something sweet. I love coffee for the taste, smell even the colour. And it’s not easy to avoid coffee beverage in our house because my husband is heavy coffee drinker too and he doesn’t want to skip it for something else.
Unfortunately I noticed that coffee start to stress my body with IBS syndrome so I need to try and replace my favourite drink with something more healthy.
I bought plenty flavoured green teas (tropical, raspberry, apple & blackcurrant, mint, mango & passion fruit), herbal teas (mint, linden, nettle) and grain coffee which looks like coffee (so I will  cheat my mind with it in crisis moments).
Nine days past… my body is coffee free for one week and two days.
How I feel?  I definitely still miss taste of coffee. Yesterday I had little headache and tried to convinced myself that my organism need coffee but finally I didn’t break my monthly resolution “March Without Coffee”
I didn’t notice yet more positive aspects of not drinking coffee but probably it’s still too early.
22 days more to come let’s see what will change later.
