caffeine
    #4047625 - 04/12/05 10:09 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I've made it through day two with out it and I am seriously addicted to it, I've been getting headaches, having difficulty concentrating and even feeling a little light almost dizzy at points.
I am trying to kick my petty addictions. Most of it has been handled fine, it's a little tough in the mornings but the worst part is what is doing to my bowels, I guess I was so used to drinking strong coffee they forgot how to act when they weren't stimulated, I feel like a double shot of expresso just so I can unload.
They say this crap can go on nine days, that's pretty shitty, but hey it's not heroin withdrawal.
I just hope I don't accidentally eat something with caffeine since it's everywhere.

I drink coffee in the morning, to wake up and drink some soda..I don't drink many drinks though...I don't think I need it...but my advice is to slowly cut down on your caffiene drinks...everyday...That is the way I started cutting down on smoking tobacco..slowly cutting down..but that was just from personal experience...oh wait just go buy a soda and sip it...for the withdrawal..is what I mean...

Nope I won't do it that way, I'm just sticking it out, I didn't really need it a year ago and now I am starting to feel like I really need it. So out with it.

I tryed cutting down on my tobacco and I just cut down on my tobacco I wasn't very good at the stopping part. I still smoke now just not very much, I skip days all the time on most days I only have one or two unless I'm partying then I might smoke a dozen or so at the most. I plan to just stop that madness next... but for now one at a time.

Sorry, I don't know much about that one..I have had more problems with alcohol and weed (if you call that a bad addiction)..something different. I am no expert at either one..

Yeah caffeine is something I partake in very rarely, so it's not a concern for me. But I can see how your bowels aren't doin alright. Coffee makes me shit like a horse.

I was drinking coffee again for awhile but now I'm weening myself off benzos so I can't afford the stimulant effect. I'm even smoking less cigarettes.

Caffeine withdrawl is a bitch. Lots and lots of water, like trying to pass a piss test for THC, but it's 10x more efficient for getting over caffeine withdrawls.

I've been drinking alot of water in the last two days, alot of herbal teas also.

I just made the stuff so strong, I would seroiusly get a high off of it, I could feel the caffeine rush through my body on the first drink, this continued untill I was buzzing everywhere by the time my mug was finished. And that was my first cup of the day.
I don't think I need to replace it with anything, I'll just stick it out, it's not a big deal really, more like an annoyance.

Yea, I used to drink a couple soda's a day. I felt very unhealthy and gross all the time. Took about a week and a half to stop craving, and those headaches were a bitch. Now its just milk and water for me.

Wooot. Still off it. No coffee, no energy drinks, nadda. Only caved once and that was because of a hangover and I only had a few drinks out of a Rock Star.
Oh yeah, everything started working properly again also.

Good job. If you must go back to caffeine try green tea. I swaer that stuff makes me feel healthier. It's got WAY LESS caffeine than coffee, it isn't acidic and it's got antioxidants.

I'm not going that over board.  I'm just stopping my addiction to coffee mainly.  I have been way overboard for to long and needed to stop.  I have an extensive tea collection and there is no way it's going to waste  :laugh:
It just won't be used constantly and I have caffeine free teas also.

I just hope I can keep this up.
