  1. Hey! I'm new to the forum and just beginning the journey from being a meat-eater to eating a plant-based diet. I have been a coffee drinker all of my life and have always used half & half to hide the bitter taste of coffee. I understand the detrimental effects of consuming dairy products (e.g., my coffee creamer) and decided that instead of trying to adjust to drinking black coffee, I would give up coffee altogether. Well, that didn't go so well, the withdrawal effects are nasty and debilitating. So I have a few questions: 1. Is it common for people who embrace a plant-based diet to also quit drinking caffeine? 2. If you did quit, what recommendations would you give to minimalize the withdrawal effects? 3. Do you drink coffee, but use a non-dairy option such as Coffee Mate (excluding soy)? I’m not looking for excuses to continue drinking coffee, but rather wanting to hear other people’s stories around this topic as I learn the dos and don’ts of eating plant-based. Thanks, Josh
