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!

Just ditch it Amanda. You don't need it.

Get more rest and sleep.

I was tired today after a busy week of late nights so laid in the sun until I didnt want to lay down anymore and now Im charged AF ready to tackle anything.

Go cold turkey and replace it with 100g of sugar water each time you would normally have caffeine. #htfu

It's hard to quit but not that hard. you will feel !@#$ for a few weeks, but anythings possible. I went cold turkey from 6-8 espressos a day overnight. It will a month of feeling crap, but you will feel better and sleep better. just keep the goal in mind, remember you don't want caffeine as act as a crutch to hold you up. You can do it. Like others say replace caffeine with a little extra sweet food will give the extra energy zapped from the fatigue of coming down.

thanks for the tips and support everyone!  day 2 without coffee...definitely wanting some but I am munching on grapes instead. also I went to bed at 8:00 last night and woke up at 5:30. would not be motivated to take this step for my health without y'all!
