Addiction is such an ugly word...

So I decided on my last Monday (that was Friday for those interested) I would try to go a work cycle with no Coke (or other high sugar, caffeinated soda). I would still have my morning cup of coffee, but refrain from having said soda with my lunch or any other time.

So that was the plan.

Around 2pm on the 1st day I started getting a headache that increased gradually in severity and resisted the non-aspirin I downed.

Day 2 the exact same thing occurred.

Day 3 I called an end to my little experiment and embraced my caffeine addiction.

;-)
Oh well.

In my experience, you can get by with a LOT less caffeine without withdrawal. I haven't quit, but I've reduced my intake to a cup in the morning, and a can of diet coke at lunch--a low enough dose that if I miss it, I don't get headaches.

just reading about the lack of caffeine gave me a headache . . .

I quit smoking years ago. I just decided one day that I was bored of it and it was rather hypocritical of me to be going into health care to better the health of others while screwing up her own. But there are some vices out there which I choose to embrace, and caffeine is one of them. I've given up soda for the most part, but you can pry my Cuisinart coffee machine and my mug out of my cold, dead hands. I don't wish to put Jerry, the boys, nor my few friends still in San Diego through the torture that is me giving up my caffeine.
