I drink cheap green tea everyday.
And sometimes red tea.

I love green tea! I drink at night, after dinner.

On topic: I drink coffee since I was 2 years old, my brain would probably shut down if I stopped now. But congrats OP on your victory over it =)



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

I am struggling right now to leave coffee... i didn't use to take coffee at all when i was a child but then because of university and work now i started consuming more and more even if I didn't like the taste at first..

Starting a couple of years ago I have had some insomnia episodes that I think are related to the intake of coffee and since then I havent been taking coffee past 16:00 so It doesnt messes up with my sleep cycle.

Still right now I am suffering of a sympthom I can't really describe when I am not under the effect of caffein. I feel "otherworldy", like I lack balance even if it doesnt really affect it since I can go MTB without a problem but when I am not under the effect of caffein I feel like I have bad balance and it's really difficult for me to concentrate. I am trying to reduce the intake as much as I can, but I am wondering if u guys have also felt those symptoms and also feel like u need to think everything twice as hard when your not under the effect of caffein

The bolded is something I really thought about yesterday and today.

I mentioned my symptoms already in the OP but the way how you expressed your lack of balance is exactly how I have felt these past weeks. It was worse in the first 2 weeks but still right now I can feel my balance is not how it should be. It's not like when you are drunk and can be prepared for it and also it's not something that has an effect on normal everyday life but...I like to dance quite often and while dancing it really has an effect. Balance is everything in dancing and my footwork just isn't the same and I have to take "support" steps a lot. I understand now that this process will take a lot of time but I'm not worried anymore since my general condition is now improving so rapidly.



I cannot imagine toilet-free life.

Kebabs have a unique attribute compared to other consumables. To unlock this effect you need to wolf down a big ass kebab really fast, like under 10 minutes or so and wait for the effect to kick in. If done correctly your movements should feel unbelievably heavy to the point where you literally cannot move at all.

As a british person, i drink more tea than most do. But earlier in the year I cut back loads for whatever reason, I drunk decafe instead for a bit basically while having 1 cup (at work as they don't have decafe) instead of like 5 or 6 like usual over the day. I did well I think however I'm back on it now, back to normal tea after it didn't seem to affect me the way I wanted (as it while I was drinking a lot less, I didn't feel any different/healthier).

I do get headaches if I don't drink tea after about 24-48hrs or more.



Hmm, pie.

I just don't like the taste of coffee.

Do you drink other sources of caffeine, like Mountain Dew  or Red Bull?

Those would be in the same class for this Detox.

Very rarely soda. Dont do energy drinks. I do drink ice tea though. Might be some caffeine in that.



Drink 10 - 20 a day, you should buy Matcha tea, expensive though.

Yes, that's a cut down. Was in hospital for tests once because of BP, i used to drink way more.



Damn I am like you! I drink 3-4 cups per day because I love the taste so much.

After hearing this I might not ever give up. In fairness though, it's not like coffee is bad for you.
