30 Bananas a Day!

I am finally willing to start weening of the caffeine, but I am scared.  I've quit cold turkey in the past and the withdrawal was really bad and I think it was such a shock to my system that I got sick...so this time I want to ween myself off.  I usually have a shot of espresso in the morning and then some days I'll have a half a cup of coffee a few hours later or another espresso shot.  So I'm not drinking a ridiculous amount, but I feel like I am still very sensitive to its effects and going without any really makes me ill.  Any suggestions and support would be much appreciated!

yogi omen's energy tea helped me and it has no stimulants in it 

Eat more than you normally do, get lots of sugar in to help the fatigue, lots of water, early nights, don't do any intense exercise for a few days to give your adrenals a chance to recover a bit, good luck!.

Cold turkey and just tough it out is what I would do

I'm big on black coffee, can't just get anything done without it. I've come to terms with my coffee addiction, best I could do is lower the amount caffeine in every drink, but coffee isn't all bad, its an anti-oxidant, specially consumed empty stomach, helps lower the inflammation.

Hmm many bad things have something good. About beer you can read very similar things often but the truth is simple and hard: Alcohol is toxic for us as is Coffee.

Tho I agree every 'bad' thing has got some good sides but comparing coffee to beer is bit of an overstatement, all I'm saying drinking or not drinking coffee cant be the game changer to your health if rest everything is in check- diet, lifestyle, sleep etc, imho.

Ya if you can't get anything done without it, chances are high that you have a serious adrenal fatigue issue.  The sooner you address it the easier it will be to heal.  Eliminating salt and coffee and high adrenaline activities while increasing your vitamin, mineral, fiber, water intake and sleep is the path to healing. 

I understand and trying cut down slowly and strategically. To eliminate all in once would be a shock to the system, not sure I'm ready to take. Coffee addict can easily understand what I mean :).

Thanks for the advice.

Good deal! :)

You are a drug addict and need help haha!

Just ditch it man and let your body detox out for a few years. I did.

If you NEED stims to 'get it done' then you shouldnt be doing it because it is not what you really want to do!!

lol I AM actually a drug addict ha recovered so I just had to lol at this post...

that being said I hate being addicted to any substance and I am curious about life free from addiction to said substances.  Coffee is my last thing that I struggle to let go of. 

I appreciate everyone's input and while I know that coffee isn't heroin, I don't want to need it to function.  thanks for the support and motivation!

Caffeine isn't heroin sure but it's still a powerful drug, I'm a recovering heroin/crack addict and I avoid it like the plague. It's also physically&psychologically addictive like heroin in that you will go through physical withdrawal , although not nearly as severe obs.

I think that because these drugs are legal and socially accepted that we think that they are not as harmful for us as illegal drugs are which is bs, also in my experience if your a recovering addict as long as your addicted to any substance no matter how minor you think it is it's gonna leave you far more open to a total relapse, hope you can get of get of that ****! , best just to knock it on the head cold imo.
