Giving Up Caffeine

Up until this year, I didn’t like coffee. I stuck with my usual tea and Diet Coke to get my caffeine fix. But slowly I’ve become obsessed with iced coffee and cold brew and now I’m cutting it all out – and it hurts, guys.

I am generally an over-thinker and it doesn’t really stop when I sleep, especially when I’m stressed out. I haven’t been sleeping well at all the past couple of weeks and it’s taken a major toll on me, so I’ve been ordered to give up caffeine for 2-3 weeks to see if it makes a difference. This is being paired with regular exercise.

I switched out my morning tea for decaf and haven’t touched a Diet Coke or coffee in days. I thought I was pretty snappy and cranky when I couldn’t sleep, but without caffeine it seems to be 10 times worse. I told myself I’d allow some cheat days, but I really do want to be able to sleep better so I think I have to at least make it through the work week without any caffeine.

I was told to cut it cold turkey, which seemed a little drastic but now makes sense. It wasn’t so hard, but at the end of the day I get headaches and want to go to bed at 5:30 pm. Which is no good.

Have you ever cut out caffeine? I would love to hear how your experience went, if you’d be able to do it, or if you have any tips!
