    Have you ever attempted to quit coffee?
    Share your experience

    Today I decided to quit coffee and I had the worst migraine ever! I felt like I was going to die.
    Have any of you tried to quit coffee before? Tell me how it went, share your experience.

    I have and I did not enjoy the experience and have resolved, coffee is the only drug (the caffeine is a drug) that I will do! I have to have one vice - in moderation but of course!

    If I quit coffee...I would literally die the death of loneliness from lack of caffeine intake.  Seriously.  lol

    Why quit coffee?  It's the perfect addiction.  Just switch to decaf, or go half-caf if the headaches are too strong.  There's no other addiction on the planet where you can make a switch to virtually the exact same product and slowly taper off of the addictive effects of the drug.

    Not really. I never considered quitting coffee an option. There are some mornings with and some without. And Starbucks is only on special occasions.

      Oooo, out of all coffees starbucks is my least favourite lol, too strong for me I guess. I'm more of a  timmies guy but I'm quitting now that's all out the window! But if you enjoy it here and then there's no sense in quitting.

    I did quit caffeine completely and you would not guess the difference it can make. First I mixed decaf coffee with caffeine and just kept tapering it off. It will have no ill effects this way. I went to caffeine free sodas too and finally I gave up both completely. I slept like a baby and my nerves got so good I didn't realize I had had a problem until I got clean.
    I still will have a cup of coffee occasionally or soda but I try to get the decaf although especially in coffee if it says decaf it still has some. Even chocolate has caffeine and if I eat too dark or too much it makes my chest hurt. Every time.
    You won't be sorry but just like cigs you should taper to not give up. Good luck!
