Yes it can drive you crazy



The last time I went cold turkey on caffeine I end up in the emergency room with panic attacks, elevated hart rate and blood pressure and a headache from hell that only a strong IV painkiller took away.

I had to go back on coffee, is hard to brake the habit since I been drinking coffee since childhood.

But thankfully I am now done with caffeine.

Never go cold turkey, that is a big, big mistake.

You know, I wonder. I suppose they could be selling GMO coffee,
they dont have to label it. Think VIA. Powdered coffee?! Oh man,
I hope not!

Talk about a conspiracy brewing!

I found an indepth article on GMO coffee, will be looking into
this soon!

Good to know you got it under control Marge,
I think the key is moderation, and then if its out of hand
cut back slowly. I have done that several times with great success.

Keep drinking less of it till its marginal.


At times it is not easy, the smell of fresh coffee beans ground up
and brewing is enough to send me back to it.

What next disagreeing with the government becomes a mental disorder?


Well, considering that it's enough to label you as a possible terrorist already, I would say most likely.

Just out of curiosity, how much coffee do you have to drink to even get to that stage?

At last we can agree on a subject! Coffee is like that sapphoo juice on Dune. If I don't get my caffeine, people around me will suffer.

After Katrina, that was a big issue. I had bad withdrawals that lasted about two days. I got a migraine so bad the first day I yacked a couple of times. After that I was ok, but oh, man, next time my BOB has got instant coffee in it. And a bottle of caffeine pills to taper off with instead of going cold turkey.

When I'm in the shop and designing 14 hours a day, it's not uncommon for me to drink three or four pots a day. Not cups, pots.

Out here interfacing with humans, I tone down the consumption to less than one pot a day.

No one's asked yet But..

What about nicotine - or Alcohol? They give similar symptoms when used.- I can see this snowballing into something very bad.. another way to take away our rights.

I didn't have any issues stopping smoking because I just swapped over to dip full time.

However, quitting dip was hard. Not as acutely nasty as going cold turkey on caffeine, but longer. Much longer. Alcohol I can take or leave.

well I see this as an attempt to categorize anyone and everyone into a "syndrome" for future leverage.
coffee is the third most consumed beverage on the planet behind water and tea.

I can see it now while buying a rifle at Big 5...

"Do you drink coffee regularly?...How much?"
