Just another addiction like coke and pepsi.

Just drink water. Or do a cleansing to help with the withdrawal symptoms of caffeine.

Maybe you did it wrong. You were supposed to gradually reduce the amount, maybe one less shot at a time, unless you have pressing heart related issues linked to caffeine overdose. 5 cups to zero just like that...that’s like people who think they could become vegan overnight. You’re demanding too much from your body if you didnt see the side effects coming..

I've never drank coffee in my life. Just the smell of it makes me queasy. But I suppose it's like any addiction. If you just quit one day your body is not going to take the change well. If you're on 5 cups per day, reduce it to 4 for a few days, then 3,then 2 and so on until you're off it completely.

I've actually been drinking a lot more water and also cut out fizzy drinks

I'm feeling healthier but some of the side affects are intense!

Why torture yourself? A cup of coffee a day isn't going to kill you. Sodas, teas, chocolate and even some pain relievers have caffeine in them. You're not totally caffeine free. Life is too fucking short to not enjoy your coffee.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Coffee is good for you, as long as you don't fill it up with sugar.

I don't drink coffee, but some time ago I was told to stop drinking tea (not because of caffeine but because of the tannin). I have to say I was/am totally unable to give it up no matter how hard I try - I'm completely addicted. I now just drink it even though I'm not supposed to. I figure I don't smoke, barely drink alcohol, am fit and healthy in every other way, so if tea kills me, so be it.

spit For real though, I can't drink coffee like I used to; I used to be able to drink it all day--now, it gives me headaches, nervous jitters, and an upset stomach if I do more than one cup Arabica bean only per day. I've cut the coffee down to two or three times a week and switched to herbal teas that have no caffeine and feel a lot better. Lemon Ginger is my favorite...

Yeah, it's a small vice to have compared to meth, heroin, cocaine, or being a drunk. I just have a big mug in the morning. On occasion we'll have a cup after dinner, but I'm not one to drink it all day. I do need it in the morning. I'm a fucking crank first thing. I don't want to talk or have the TV on. I just want coffee and an hour of quiet.

Why did you give up coffee? It's really not necessary if you can keep it to a limit (i.e. 1-2 per day) and go easy on the sugar and cream.

Wow. I have underactive thyroid, the only dietary advice I was given was to try and get some iodine in my diet (or take a supplement). I can understand bread and sugar, but the rest... eek

Tea and coffee are both addictive! If you can’t go cold turkey just have less!

I have underactive thyroid and it’s really crap because the weight gain was getting out of control - so I started to chang my diet about a month ago and can already see results / my energy levels have increased dramatically- so that’s a positive

Do your self a favour and goodle it - the list of what to avoid is extremely long - I was really surprised when I realised I was making it worse by eating things I thought were good for me!

LOL.... I just did. Honestly I wouldn't last five mins doing it. Hats off to you if you can. I'd be interested in the results long term. FWIW, I cut out most processed foods, bread and most dairy last year and have lost almost 50lb in weight. My thyroid tests haven't changed one bit - I did hope there would have been some improvement but there wasn't.

In 1 month I’ve noticed a big improvement in my energy levels and lost 2 kilos 😊
I just need to learn to control the mood swings and work out what I can do for the constant headaches 😕
