    ...and I think I may try to wean myself off of caffeine completely. I've tried over the past 3 or 4 weeks to get myself down to 1 cup of the delicious black beverage in the morning, but alas it seems that my body prefers that I maintain higher levels, and unless I stay ever-vigilant pretty soon I'm right back to 4 or 5 cups a day, not good for my anxiety, relentless insomnia and ADD, not too mention the dehydration and the teeth discoloration.

    Has anybody else gone caffeine free? How long have you been off? How has it improved your quality of life?

    Yes I went caffiene free for a few years (until Starbuck's came to Canada). I slept better, I was more relaxed and pleasant, my skin complexion looked a few years younger (pores tighter etc.), I was less stuffy in my nose and I urinated less frequently......and yes I should probably give it up again.

    It's hell, but it's worth it.

    Thanks Happyguy & Carmel.

    One website said that one of the effects of quitting is a "mental fog" that lasts about a month or so. I'm not looking forward to that.
