How much caffeine to you drink per day? I tried to go off of it cold turkey this week and got an outrageous migraine. I drink at least 3 cups of strong coffee per day...sometimes a whole pot! So, how much do you drink? Have you ever tried to quit?
I've had to cut back a lot because of health issues. Before kids, I generally drank 8-12 cups of coffee per day. Now, I have an occasional cup of tea and most of the time I drink red tea which is very low in caffeine.
I usually have a large cup of half caff in the morning. Sometimes I'll have the other half of the pot at lunch, sometimes not. Then I have green tea here and there during the day.
I tried that too and just made myself miserable. Don't go off caffeine cold turkey! Your brain chemistry actually changes and that's why the migraine. I'm down from two large travel cups to one small mug. Maybe an extra cappucino before 5 when I need a kick or on days off when I want to stay up late and write on my stories.
I usually drink at least a cup of hot tea and a cup of iced tea a day
2-3 cups a day.
A half pot for me...Then some sweet tea...When I was visiting my mom for 3 weeks I had an awful headache 2 days in...I was like OH MY GOSH, my head...I meantioned I drink a pot and a half of coffee per day...My mom pipes in "It's decaf coffee".. Needless to say we went to the store after I bought the biggest iced coffee the QT sold....
