Number of people dead=2 (1 being me but I think that is just how I feel)
Minutes late to work=5
Number of cups of green tea consumed=2
Number of co-workers bitch-slapped=3 inevitably more to come
Rating of headache I am experiencing now= 6.75 & rising.

Is it worth it?
Ask me at the end of the week.

I've actually cut in half the amount of coffee I was drinking. I used to have a large cup for my drive into work (16oz), and another around 11:00. I've stopped having that second cup. I am still pooping just the same.

Lack of coffee obviously leads to deterioration of spelling.
I can't find it. Need coffee. :dead:


Why you say?
I don't like being dependent on substances, for health reasons, just to see how the other half lives, it is expensive, just to see if I can, I like torturing myself, ****, I forgot the other reasons. Need coffee.:twitch:
It is not for good either just an experiment. But who knows....once this bloody headache goes away I may not go back. :shocked:

Wait, you're cutting out coffee but still able to get caffeine through tea? LAME! Go cold turkey and experience the hell only a chemical addiction can cause.
No f'n way. Tapering down is bad enough.


Leppah-dude, that sweating comment was gross. Get in line for a bitch slap (the line is loooong BTW :D)

Sorry to hear your lament... I drink coffee every day but don't have any problem if I go a few days without it. I wonder why? :think:
you not human.

I think I have been overdoing it lately with it being May sweeps & all. After I prove I can go without & this damn headache dissipates I think I will go back to drinking a reasonable amount.

Heroin is good for a headache.

I could no longer handle the black paint thinner that passes for coffee at work. Found some nice green tea in place, a nice moderate lift compared to the roller coaster ride coffee provides.

& green tea doesn't make your pee stink.



Thanks for the support :monkey:'s. today has been like that scene in Trainspotting where Ian MacGreggor locks himself in his bedroom trying to kick his skag habit. :clapping:

Like I said, I feel much better without coffee. Better hydrated and no roller coaster energy levels. Not to mention that when I really need a kick in the ass coffee will actually do something for me.

I cut the volume of coffee I drink a day, but make it twice as strong so the amount of caffeine is the same. I piss less.

to see if you can.
Been out since Friday. Been doing good. I don't smoke as much anymore, since I don't have a regular "guy". Went for 3 weeks recently. Not too bad really & it wasn't that hard. Of course I had moments where I wanted a sticky nug to puff on but I can honestly say quitting coffee has been WAY worse.

Try weening yourself off by switching to some chai or black tea. Use just 1 bag and it's about half as strong as coffee. I'd make like 32 oz of tea with 1 bag and then ice what was left of it for lunch.

I got totally off coffee for about 6 months in '08. This year though it's making a comeback. I've had 1 small cup of really good strong coffee a day for the last 2-3 weeks.

Downsides:
- 3 days of bad headaches (come on at about 2:00, first day I had to go home cuz it was so bad)
- Less motivation first half of the day
- Not very talkative in the AM
- Never know when first sh!t of the day will be (could be 10:00AM, could be 10:00PM)

Upsides:
- Less office farts
- Mouth doesn't taste like coffee
- No 3:00 monster crash
