    Has anyone done a caffene detox? I am thinking about cutting all sodas and caffene from my diet. It should not be too bad since I only drink 1 diet coke a day.

    I need caffiene to function properly. I usually drink mainly water at work (even moreso the last week since I've been getting over a bad chest cold), but I'm known to crack open a can of Coke Zero or Dr Pepper or a bottle of Diet Mountain Dew with dinner.

      Sure have. I quit cold turkey. It shouldn't be that bad since you don't drink that many sodas a day.

      Make sure your fluid intake is mostly ,if not all, pure H2O and if you get a slight headache, don't be afraid to take some tylenol. The headaches, if you even get them, shouldn't last more than a few days to a week.

        Thank you! I have heard that you can get bad headaches.

            Heh...I did that...and trust me, it wasn't easy with working at Starbucks and all...

            Basically, it's easy to do as long as you think about it everytime you're thirsty and go for something to drink...just keep a bottle of Aspirin with ya!

              I quit drinking caffeine in April and it was one of the best things I've ever done...with my heart and my tendency to be a bit nervous/oversensitive about things, not drinking caffeine has really calmed me down and cleared my mind. I wouldn't drink it again if you paid me. But, I do miss Starbucks!

                About 7 years ago I quit cold turkey due to I had read that caffeine can contribute to bad skin. I still will allow myself Starbucks on the weekends but mostly stick to unleaded now. I would agree you can get headaches but Tylenol or Extra Strength Excedrin can help wean you in the beginning stages (the Excedrin has caffeine in it). You might miss it at first but since you are not a die hard addict you will do just fine. Good luck! :thumbup:

                  I definitely feel a lot better when caffeine is out of my diet. Unfortunately I love my CocaCola and my morning (black) tea. I try to drink more herb tea and water, skipping Cokes any time I can.

                  Caffeine gives me PMS. I can get away with it two weeks a month if I'm careful but the other two weeks I must stay away from it.
                  I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.
