I'm a terrible terrible caffiene addict, but I did manage to cut waaaaay down for several months. Trying to work my way back down again as we speak.

I had TERRIBLE headaches, and I got really snappy there for a while. The headaches still come on sometimes.

I did figure out that I had a much easier time going through the day with no infusion if I just gave in and had coffee in the morning. That seems to be my main thing.

I can say though that it is worth the trouble, because I do feel better when I stay off the caffiene for the most part, and you really do sleep better, and wake up less during the night.

The things you want to watch out for is it means that you cannot CANNOT have caffiene a few hours before bed anymore once your dependence is broken, because it WILL jack your butt up like you wouldn't believe. And also, if all of the sudden you hit it heavy again (alas, like I've been doing the past few weeks), it can really cause some stomach aches and really bad headaches. (But I won't lie. It's like sweet mana from heaven.)

Good luck; people joke around about it but it is a really hard habit to get out of.
