Raised on caffiene
    #2475066 - 03/26/04 12:20 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hi. I posted about this topic several months ago, and now I have come to a possible solution as to why I lack energy all the time.

The theory came to me when I sipping some caffinated drink, and suddenly did not feel tired anymore. Although my statement sounds blatantly obvious and almost ridiculous, it also triggered some childhood memories. When I was a child, I used to drink Coca-Cola all the time. As I grew up I continued to drink coffee, tea, and other caffinated sodas. Then, about a year ago, I stopped drinking caffinated products because I wanted to break the bad habit. Now I realize why I am so fatigued all the time... because my body has become accustomed to caffiene.

How am I to break this horrid cycle? I am exercising, but I really dislike aerobic exercise. Therefore I normally do anaerobic exercises (such as lifting weights). This has gotten pretty bad, because when I drink caffinated products I get energy but it is misdirected and refuses to let me concentrate. If I do not drink caffinated products then I am very tired. Anyone have any suggestions?

I dont know man ??
maybe do some reading on herbal alternatives
maybe there is something about this in chinese medicine
??

I have just the opposite
I drank 0 caffiene as a child
and very little as a teen
so know I feel over energized and tense all the time
I really need to relax
I have no girlfriend to message me anymore
and I dont meditate enough
its starting to affect my life pretty hard

The only reason I consume so much caffiene and sugar is because I quit smoking cigarettes
hopefully when I start smoking weed again I will cut the caffiene out.

there are herbal stimulants that do not contain caffeine (or any other methylated xanthines)

maca
celastrus
ephedra
coca
& quite afew others as well, i am sure...

as well as nootropics...

& even amino acids & hormones can help some folks...

quit drinking it. While you do so, have a small cup of coffee when you wake up so you don't get a headache. I haven't drank caffiene all week, and it was pretty bad the first two days.

Try Ginsing instead and taking multiviamins, ginsing works with your body instaed of against it, try drinking 'sobe' with ginsing or try ginsing, it is so great, caffiene drains you...
