Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Trigger your mind. Always have a coffee, tea or water present conveniently instead of energy drink. That way, you will find it easier choose one over the other.
✓ Let the app help. The reminder can ring you up every morning, remind you it’s energy-drink-free day. You may also track your progress in the calendar by marking out the days you couldn’t resist the temptation.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone through a month of serious and successful energy drink reduction, reward yourself by going to a fancier coffee house and ordering a nice, nuanced black coffee. Sit down and enjoy it. See what you’ve been missing and get back to it.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Ingredients. Most energy drinks contain more than 12 different ingredients. Amongst most present are caffeine, vitamins B12, B6 and B3, Taurine, sugars, etc. Although caffeine has been well-studied, other ingredients that go in have been looked into far less so and their reactions against each other can be unpredictable. Remember that whenever you’re taking an energy drink, you may have a negative reaction and chances increase with every can.
✓ Observe yourself. What makes you choose energy drinks over anything else? Do you get shivers and feel like you can hardly move without it? If you’ve already started reducing, this might be the caffeine and sugar withdrawal showing itself. If you find it hard to concentrate without energy drinks, feel like you absolutely have to have them and nothing else, you might already be addicted.
