It gives me a stomach ache anyways, so I should let it go. I really want to start this now especially since I’m starting school, and I don’t want to rely on coffee for energy. 16 months ago

How I did it: I took the "cold turkey" route, which was painful at first, but the discomfort only lasted about a week. I started right after I graduated college because I was drinking about 4 cups a day to keep up with my last crazy semester, and it was ironically exhausting--that wired but tired, jittery but fatigued feeling.
My goal is to abstain just for the month of January as a sort of fast. 23 months ago
Only 3 cups of green tea. I feel great. Not nervous, cognitive skills as strong, if not stronger, slept deeply last night. 2 years ago
Coffee, coffee, coffee. Been addicted to it for close to 30 years. I should just say caffeine, as Coke was my initial drug of choice. Stopped pop years ago and now am on a straight bean diet.
My reasons for wanting to stop:
- Anxiety (nuff said)
- Health. The stuff causes me to put on weight. That’s a fact.
- Money. Not too much of an issue if brewed at home, but way too expensive at the café.
- Concentration. I think I’m smarter when I’m high on caffeine, but I really think I’m just, well, high. Good for assembly line work maybe, but not for critical thinking. 2 years ago
