Decaffeinate Me, Please



They say caffeine is the most widely abused drug in the United States. I rarely drink coffee but I have been consuming Red Bull and other similar energy drinks like they are going out of style. It wasn't until this past week though that I realized how much I depended on caffeine to get me through the day. I eliminated all the energy drinks from my life and have tried to even avoid caffeinated soda. Wow. I have been so tired. Even after 9 hours of sleep I find myself dozing off in class or coming home and taking a nap. This withdrawl should only last a short while but it is scary to see how vital caffeine had become to my body. Yikes!

Right! I think I have that addiction too... how long should it take to wean yourself off?

I totally understand caffeine. I wrote a post recently detailing my submission to coffee gradually over the years. what do you eat? I mean in terms of content? IThey say certain uncooked vegetables and certain fruit, plus sleep of course, gives you alot of energy.

Good luck on your withdrawal cold turkey

I've never had a dependency on caffeine...mainly because i think coffee and energy drinks taste like piss! I am sure you can find something else to take it's place :P
