It started out innocently enough when I first met the weird 2 tailed lady.

Lattes and a sweet little cookie. I loved the idea of it and the popularity of it, made me feel a part of something very big and very cool. But then as good as the drinks were, I have never been able to tolerate coffee and well coffee is coffee even if it is smothered with milk and flavors. The 2 tailed lady lured me back in with cool music, and something new… CHAI TEA…which later I perfected my order to be “a tall non fat hot 6 PUMP Chai Tea” as the normal 3 pump just tasted like hot milk to me. Little did I know I was increasing the caffeine from 75mg to 150mg.  Well long story short, it all hit me the day I walked into my office and the secretary said, You always have a Starbucks in your hand every time I see you”  DUN DUN DUN!  I was shocked because I knew then…I WAS AN ADDICT!

I thought I could just say enough is enough, but I was hooked. The minute I got into my car I was like “Pavlovs salivating dogs” and thought I needed a Starbucks. It was crazy.  I could make it through the caffeine withdrawal headache ok, but the minute I had a stressful day, I would give in and reward myself. Until I started using this one simple technique called TRACKING! I started tracking every dime I spent and every bite I took.  When I realized just how much I was spending on my addiction, and how much I was depriving myself from what I truly value,  it was a no brainer and I was able to kick it and haven’t fallen off yet. Granted Starbucks is a great meeting place that I have to say has one of the craziest marketing plans that make it almost impossible to say no to, which I actually admire about them.  Now if I do meet up with someone there I just enjoy the aromas the ambience and have an ice water. I fill up a seat and look cool for a short time.  You might be saying there has to be more to it than that…well there is a bit. I have created an entire course to help others beat this and other life sucking habits. Fill out the form below to get the inside scoop on how to KICK STARBUCKS BUTT!
