how long does it take to quit caffeine?
and how did you do it? I have been drinking green tea to ease into this, but I am still sluggish no matter what. It seems that only with coffee can I really wake up.

That is a battle that I'm no longer willing to fight.
But I have done it a few times. Two times unwillingly - after coming back from trips abroad with nasty stomach bugs -- and once by slowly cutting caffeine intake by cutting my coffee with milk and/or hot water. Tea didn't work for me either. There is something about coffee other than the caffeine that my body wanted. But by adding more milk and water, then switching to heavily diluted decaf and then finally nothing it eventually worked. Took like two months of weaning.

In all honesty, I did it when I had the flu. I felt so miserable anyway it didn't matter that I was withdrawing from coffee too. Have to let you know I quit coffee about 20 years ago ...so you can do it. I drink tea now and it does the trick. I was drinking about a pot of coffee (or more) a day when I quit.

I quit once. I decided that the next time I was sick I would go cold turkey. I had two bad days of headaches and another 10 days of tiredness. After that I drank decaf when I wanted coffee.

I had to with the first 9 days of FSD. Oh MAN that was torment. But scared me out of drinking so much coffee at such a young age (at LEAST one cup a day, everyday, since I was 16).
I had terrible migraines the first 2 days, and felt sick for 3-4 days, and then it went away. For the tiredness, try bumping your excersise into the AM, to really get you pumped!

Try half caf, half decaf for a bit, and then slowly making more decaf, less caf. The withdrawal won't be as bad. And you'll still get to enjoy the habit of drinking coffee. Then, if you want to stop the habit entirely, at least you won't feel sick and have headaches at the same time!
