Cutting out Caffeine and Alcohol

Giving up caffeine and other vices while in the program can be challenging. Any tips that have worked for you, to make this transition easier?

I find I drink a lot more coffee at work because it is easily available. On vacation my consumption nosedives because it is hard to find in a lot of places - at least good coffee - even in Europe. But frankly I am not convinced that coffee is that bad for you from a calorie point-of-view (but then I drink it black - no sugar).
Alcohol is a whole nother story. I really enjoy a few glasses of wine or a few bottles of beer after a hard days work. Calories galore.

I was a hard-core caffeine addict. It was really hard at first - took about a month to adjust, but I substituted green tea. I find that for both alcohol and caffeine there is a huge social component: I was going for a latte a couple times a day with coworkers as a social/informal meeting type thing. I found that substituting tea allowed me to enjoy the social aspect without the caffeine. That sort of helped, although not entirely. It turns out a caffeine addiction is harder to kick than you would think.
