Stop Relying On Caffeine

This Sparked Me!

It took a few months, but I have happily stopped using caffeinated coffee. I feel like it has helped stop the heart palpitations and jitteriness.And I am not as moody since I am not dependent on that morning cuppa joe (or four), and no more Diet Pepsi, either!

    I switched to decaf coffee in January when I realized my feminine problems could be caused by caffeine. Sure enough, giving up my caffeine habit cured me of a problem I had had for over 3 years. I also am realizing I should be sipping water instead of water and make myself drink plenty of water and limit my decaf coffee.

    Me too. decided this morning to stop drinking coffee period. It puts coffee stains on my teet. It costs about 10$ a week to keep up my habit and a glass of water with lemon will do just fine.

    I gave up caffeine several months ago. For the first couple of weeks it was really hard to get myself moving in the morning with unleaded coffee, but I did get used to it.

I basically had to choose which end of my day I wanted to be difficult....getting going in the morning or falling asleep at night. I opted for being able to get to sleep at night and took my chances on the possibility of having difficulties in the morning.

I'm not going to lie and tell you that I don't have any difficult mornings where I really wish that I still had caffeinated coffee in my kitchen. But I really love being able to easily fall asleep almost every night. emoticon
