Caffeine withdrawal- how long?
Stopped Friday last week. How long does it take? I feel super sensitive and constant day long headache etc etc at the moment.
I’ve gone from excessive consumption to suddenly if I have one I get a migraine.Posted 3 years ago
Good work – Stick at it!
I went from about a dozen cups of tea to none. First week I felt constantly knackered then the second week headaches and knackered. Then all was well… I sleep better than ever and palpitations are now almost none existant.
I tried decaf tea bags and decided they were all shite, however I have recently found Ringtons decaf tastes alright.Posted 3 years ago

Did this a few years ago, only lasted 4-5 days for me.Posted 3 years ago
I tried 2 weeks, no headaches, still slept rubbish, felt more tired, so I went back to coffee.Posted 3 years ago
I tried a few years ago and it was brutal and hit the coffee again after a few days. Did it again at the begining of the year and didn’t even get a headache, although I do have a proper coffee with my breakfast so that might be why.Posted 3 years ago
I’ve no choice- if I drink espresso I get a cluster headache.
Is it usual to get daylong constant headache in the background? Back of my head. Making me paranoidPosted 3 years ago

It’s a strenuous, mind bending effort to give up.
Give up and put up with the withdrawal symptoms
Be weak like me and have a double espressoPosted 3 years ago
3 weeks of headaches here, but it got rid of my acid stomach virtually overnight.Posted 3 years ago
I only take rennies now when I’ve had a cider, or when I eat loads of rubbish, like this week.
I dont think it has affected my sleep, I was always ready for bed when on it, so nothing has changed there.
Went from mainlineling caffeine to nothing last New Year felt crap for about 4-5 days. It drink it now before a race has the same effect on me as speed. I run faster but spend half the race gibbering like Spud at a job interview.Posted 3 years ago
I keep trying to give up coffee, but it’s my only vice and my willpower dissolves easily when people at work are brewing up.Posted 3 years ago
Two weeks withdrawal according to the sports nutritionist I spoke to-I weened myself off it entirely to ensure I got the best possible effect from caffeine gels during a big event.Posted 3 years ago
3 – 4 days of being a bit off.
Didn’t seem much of a problem given the stomach pain I was getting from caffeine.Posted 3 years ago
Took two weeks for me to get over the withdrawal symptoms. The worst thing now is if I have a ‘real’ coffee I’m awake all night.Posted 3 years ago
