Kicking the caffeine habit.

I refuse to kick my caffeine habit! I know that many people have broken their lifelong bond to this wonderful drug but I simply cannot. My day is not complete unless I have at least one or two caffeinated drinks for a quick energy boost. They help big time when I need to stay awake with the baby, want to get a few extra posts in on GF, or need to finish one more show.

Did anyone else quit caffeine? Anyone else refuse to?

I'm not going to give it up. If I didn't have a cup of coffee or two in the morning I couldn't get going. I'm sure I could cut back on it but give it up entirely is not going to happen.

I don't really have much of a habit to kick, I don't drink coffee and soda is pretty rare. The only way I get caffeine is through iced tea and I've been drinking a lot of it lately.

I've never really felt the effects of caffeine before, I can have a load of soda about 10 minutes before going to bed and I don't even feel it. (don't feel the sugar either until I have WAY too much of it)

That being said, my professors keep telling me that caffeine is the most popular drug in America.

I refuse to. I drink copious amounts of coffee throughout the day. I love the boost it gives me and I love the taste of coffee. I read different studies on the effects of coffee, some positive, some negative, but in the end nothing can convince me to quit or scale back, I love coffee and the caffeine it provides.

I'll never quit it completely, but I definitely don't have a habit. I like to have a mocha each weekend, but I don't have them each day.
I used to despise coffee, but it's grown on me this past year.

I love coffee and tea way too much to stop drinking them, and I refuse to drink caffeine free, it just doesn't feel right. I need 2 cups of coffee in the morning, one before I leave for work and then one when I get there. It is just part of my routine now, and I like routine.

I never drank coffee until I moved to the UK and started working 12 to 16 hour days in a hotel. This was at the age of 24 maybe? Since then, it's like I've been on a mission to make up for 24 years of not drinking coffee. I am a pretty big addict when it comes to coffee. At work, I probably have 20 cups of coffee. I am not over exaggerating either, it might even be more than 20 cups.

I have "quit" or tried to quit before. Earlier this year actually. I replaced my coffee intake with water and cut coffee out completely. I had a four day migraine during detox, but after that, I felt fantastic. Unfortunately. it would seem that quitting coffee is harder than quitting smoking. I half joke (I say half, coz I laugh when I say it, but it's really no joke) and tell people not to talk to me before my 3rd cup of coffee at work.

I have quit caffeine at least 10 times. I love it so much :[ It cant quit me!!! lol... I don't smoke, do "drugs" and drink once a year, if that... so its not so bad, but I know caffeine can alter your sleep and waking quality. Meh.

I don't plan on giving it up. I already gave up my nicotine habit, what more do people want of me???

I don't feel like I have to have it, until I go a day or two without it. I don't really think about it that much.

Oh, poppycock.

Know those feels!

I used to drink SO MUCH coffee when I lived on campus. I have a Keurig so I'd just run back my dorm, press a button and BOOM. Then I found it was messing with my mental illness and I had to cut back. Boy, that was hard.
