Up until 5 years ago, I was essentially a functioning drunk. Today, I rarely drink and don’t much miss it. Along the way, I replaced my drinking lifestyle with a fitness addiction bordering on obsession at different times. Now as far as numbers, it doesn’t appear I’m obsessed but that’s due to some program hopping early on, an injury, and a traveling job for a year. My point/question is more in regards to how you break habits/addictions. I tend to replace addictions with another, trying to pick one that is “better” for me/my goals.
My current addictions, that I would like to see go are smokeless tobacco (snuff) and caffeine (mainly sodas).
What techniques have some of you used for either of these, or other habits? I.e. Cold turkey, replacement, tapering, etc.
