caffiene withdrawal headaches!!!!


I have been having the worst headaches this whole week and I think it might be because I stopped coffee, but it is only my 6th day of doing so.
I cannot believe the almost migrainic pain it has caused.

Anyone else experience this? and what are the benefits of no more caffiene cause I keep readinghow good it is for you.

i recently gave up caffiene and boy, do those headaches SUCK!!! but, be strong, they go away after about a week (at least in my case they did). i now find that my body's natural clock has really started to regulate my activities: rather than me prompting my body that it's time to work-out, for example, i have a natural energy in the mornings and use my time to exercise instead of grinding the beans...i also fall asleep faster than with caffiene in my system, and my sleep is noticably deeper. i just feel great. i have replaced my coffee drinking-perhaps better called addiction-with non-caffienated teas. good luck getting through the next can do it!

Funny, I consume caffeine to cure headaches (usually caused by rapid weather changes).

Caffeine is one of those things that you really are better easing out of rather than going cold turkey. It doesn't generally have the incredibly unhealthy and addictive characteristics of tobacco or alcohol. But if you're already on Day 6, no sense in changing your course - good for you!

interesting article

i get migraines myself, triggered mostly by the weather and hormone changes. the only food trigger i can identify with 100% certainty is red wine.

i know caffeine has its headache connections, but i just don't think it does much to me. i drink about 2 caffeinated beverages per day (coffee in the morning, soda sometime later), and may have a 3rd if i have to stay up all night at work. but when i have a day off and don't have any caffeine, no headache.

here's an interesting question....what time of day do you have your slump? i usually wake up fine, but start to drag about 2 hours later. then i regret skipping the morning coffee. i also drag around 3 or 4pm.

cold turkey = PAIN!

I'm a major coffee addict. =)

I work 2 jobs and am finishing up my degree and so over the course of a semester my coffee consumption can get really out of hand. So, when I decide it's time to stop the coffee train I do so by first setting a caffine cut off time of the day in the early afternoon, like 2:30 PM. After that time I will have a cup of herb tea instead or juice or whatever, just not anything with caffine in it.
After a day or two of that I then begin cutting my coffee consumption by half every two days or so until I can get up and get moving without needing my fix. ;)
