    I've been drinking caffeine since before I can remember.  I've been getting really sick so I decided to quite the caffeine, and sure enough, I started feeling better.  However, I keep going back.  I've over used it, so it doesn't do anything for me, but for some reason I can't stop for more than a few days.  I know it's an addiction, but I don't know how to rid myself of it.

    Just quit it cold turkey and power through the withdrawal process.  Your body is physically addicted to it, but if people addicted to narcotics and cigarettes can do it, you can too.

    Or try it reducing gradually by replacing your coffee or whatever with caffeinated tea.

    Are you addicted to the caffeine or the taste of coffee?  If it's the caffeine, then try caffeinated tea. If its the taste of coffee (or the smell) try decaf or even non-coffee (it's usually a mix of barley, malt and a few other grains). Generally, it's pretty good (Kraus tastes exactly like coffee without the caffeine).

      It's the caffeine, not the taste.  I drink a lot of coke and red bull.  They make me sick and don't give me energy, but it's just hard to stop.

    Until recently, all I drank was coffee (3-4 cups a day). About two weeks ago I switched to green tea (no idea why) and believe it or not, I have noticed a difference in the way I've been feeling. Nothing major - just little things like feeling better when I get up in the morning. Don't know if the coffee had anything to do with me feelin so crappy in the morning but haven't had the problem since switching.

    Still drink coffee but only iced lattes now :-)

    ooo Ranger Sorry you're dealing with Caffeine problems. my best advice is slowly ween yourself try drinking only 3 caffinated drinks a day or something like that...then when you feel ready switch to noncaffinated drinks. GOOD LUCK CHICA!!!!

    yeah, instead of going cold turkey, taper off, and allow yourself one caffeinated drink a day, like a soothing hot cup of tea.
