Anyone out there abstain from the drug known as caffiene?<br><br><br><br>
I may be quitting this soon and was wondering if anyone out there doesn't shoot up this legal drug.

I heard a really great radio program on the neurological effects of caffiene, quite the powerful drug in its way. The physical addictive effects only last about 2 days, then you're "clean." You just have to push through the headache and sluggishness and you're all clear.

Eat your chocolate and don't worry about the caffine. it doesn't have any. Although it is in the same chemical family it is much gentler and also healthful to a degree.

I've been trying to give it up too, without much luck. I used to drink it every day. Now I only drink it every 2-3 days. Sometimes I'll drink chai tea instead, but I'm pretty sure there is caffeine in that too. Oops! Well, hope you have better luck at this than me!

hehe...i'll admit, i'm an absolute caffeine junkie...coffee, all the time; caffeine containing pop, of course; tea, love it!<br><br>
i used to drink it for the effect, but then i realized, it doesn't really have an effect on me unless i injest a lot of it.<br><br>
besides, my coffee is my personal way to remember some really great times i had with my oma.<br><br>
and everyone knows the nights when you get three hours of sleep and have to stay awake and keep going on a full schedule...o i drink caffeine like crazy, and it helps a little, even if it's just all the sugar or empty calories...<br><br>
but props to all of you abstaining from the drug <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I was total caffeine addict years ago. I was drinking at least 2 cans of coke a day...some days up to 4. I stopped cold turkey when I got pregnant with my 1st son and I suffered for about 2 weeks. Headaches, shakey, weekness. It was horrible. Now almost 4 years later, I very rarely drink anything with caffeine. If I have somethign with it, I pay for it the next day with a horrible headache.

I prefer oral ingestion.<br><br>
...<br><br>
My suggestion? A taper, reducing daily intake by 50 mg each week.<br><br><br><br>
