My Diary: The time I gave up Caffeine!
I decided that I would give up Coffee...I worked out that I was having in the region of 6-8 cups a day, sometimes more!
Day 1: Fine, not a problem...
Day 2: Eh, feeling a bit rubbish
Day 3: BAD BAD BAD headache! Didnt sleep very well!
Day 4: BAD headache, again didnt sleep the best!
Day 5: Fine and refreshed, best night sleep in a while!
I didnt realise how much an effect coffee has on the body! on Day 4 it was quite bad! Stonking headache! Now, a cup of tea a day & this peppermint tea from sainsburys! very nice stuff!
My advice: Do it if you want to, but hide for a few days, I was very irritable!!

Been tempted to do this for a while but i like coffee to much, May cut down a bit though. As if i did a detox Id probably go back to drinking it the week after

Switch to decaf?

Personally I avoid anything that decaff, pretty harsh solvents are used to strip out the caffeine and make it into the coffee. Studies have shown that decaf coffee drinkers have a higher incidence of rheumatoid arthritis which has been linked to the chemicals in decaff.

I remember the time I didn't have coffee for 24 hours, it led to a 24 hour headache, and I was only on 2-3 cups a day!!

*currently sitting in my local Weatherspoons enjoying the unlimited filter coffee refills until 2pm*
Both the best and worst thing I have ever found!

I've only been drinking coffee for about 5-6 months, one cup a day Mon-Friday, every Saturday afternoon i get a mild headache which i can only put down to coffee as i rarely get a headache otherwise.

I've had a history of headaches, and i never really took to coffee until i started working full time... would wonder what i'd be like without coffee now though!

For those wanting a decent decaf: Rave Coffee

I used to drink coffee and was fine, then a few years ago during a quiet spell at school the coffee intake increased slightly... I started having heart palpitations, wasn't particularly pleasant. Went to see the doctor and they said to reduce the caffeine so I went decaf and was fine. More recently I've swapped to green tea and am feeling better for it

I don't like coffee, so i find myself drinking redbull or monster regularly expensive and not good for me, i never ever have more than one of those in a day though, and i always stick entirely to the sugarfree variants of each.

Gave up coffee ages ago. Switched to break fluid and never looked back. That sh!t's got some kick!

Some (I think Clipper, for example) use CO2
