I kicked the soda habit 2 months ago. My biggest problem was the caffiene withdraw headaches. Well I "fixed" that by drinking coffee. I can go 2 days without before starting to get a headache.

My question is- should I do a drastic switch & go decaf only? Or should I start buying (or making) my own halfcaf half decaf?

I just stopped cold turkey. I drank more water and the withdrawals weren't as bad as weaning myself.

Why go decaf? If you're going to stop why drink coffee at all?

Do caffeinated tea then move to decaf.

It'll be much easier if you gradually make it with less and less caffeine. You may even kick the coffee habit headache free.

I stopped soda almost3 weeks ago. I allow myself 1 cup of caffeinated coffee each morning. Idk if I'm ready to quit yet. If you can go 2 days w/o, I bet you could quit cold turkey.

When I quit for awhile I did the half and half and it was very easy. I eventually went to decaf and then quit for awhile. I started again when I went back to work though.  Funny story, my mom switched my dad to decaf without him ever knowing by doing half and half. He still thinks he drinks caffinated coffee and orders it when they go out to eat and comments how good the coffee is, lol.

I'd just drink the coffee, but then again, I do live just outside of Seattle, where we have a Starbucks on every corner.....

I could not get through a work day for the headache. I like coffee though and I am not trying to quit.
