  • Quit coffee ,cold turkey

    My blood pressure is too hi ,So 4 days ago I quit. I have 3 cups of tea a day now. A couple of months ago i was doing 10 cups a day for Years. Cut to Seven cups, then 0 . The withdrawal is making zoo tired ! Any one else experience this ? . I stopped drinking 29 Years ago the same way, cold Turkey. No AA. It's a good life, with an Awesome Wife !

    interesting fact: tea has more caffeine than coffee per dry weight but because less tea is used to brew your drink the caffeine amount per drink is less for tea.

    What kind of tea are you drinking? I dropped coffee for almost two years and switched to lemon tea. But since then I've fallen off the wagon and I'm back on the coffee again :/ I blame it on my Kureg Coffee maker... it's just so easy to use. :/

      I'm sorry to hear you quit coffee [good coffee]

      it has anti-oxidants, and some studies have proved it slows Alzheimer's
      it also keeps you regular but I forget the other positive aspects of good coffee.

      never complain about the coffee ...someday you too will be old and weak!

      to eliminate caffeine you'll need to stop taking:

      cola soda, mountain dew, assorted headache drugs, cold medicine, chocolate, energy drinks,
      some processed bakery goods, candy, honey cake, a lot of teas unless you're only drinking decaffeinated teas.

      Many herbal teas still have caffeine too.

          I've always been told that going cold turkey on anything is bad for your health.

              Good for you, and your "Awesome Wife!". I never drank nearly as much coffee per day as yourself but with high blood pressure I did cut back to one cup a day and tea at night. Like someone else mentioned there is hidden caffeine is many other foods, and over the counter drugs. I went for a physical today and was told my blood pressure is okay (I take exforge) cholestersol not bad, and blood sugar on the border. I know I need to eat less junk, less food in general. I do make better choices but it's a slower transition than cold turkey. The rewards are a longer and healthier life, so keep up the good work and enjoy life! Frank

                There's a time and place for decaf coffee.
                Never, and down the drain.

                  You Can Take My Coffee When You Pry It From My Cold Dead Hands!!!!!!

                  "cola soda, mountain dew, assorted headache drugs, cold medicine, chocolate, energy drinks,
                  some processed bakery goods, candy, honey cake, a lot of teas unless you're only drinking decaffeinated teas." The docs already told me to give up all those things so my coffee is staying.

                    For the record ...

                    cold turkey is only good on white bread with lettuce, tomato, and mayo

                          Never had coffee, tea once a month or so at a chineese restaurant. No alcohol.

                          Even went to sugar free soda about 6 months ago.

                          Not too many milk shakes anymore

                            Did you buy your coffin, too? Sounds to me like it is hardly worth living.
