Up until two weeks ago I drank a lot of caffeine…I wouldn’t say I’m an addict, but I do have mild periodic cravings still two weeks later. I quit. I hear THC isn’t addictive. I wonder if I could have used weed to quit through substitution. I figure that weed is less addictive than caffeine so it would be easy to quit the weed once I no longer felt the cravings for caffeine.
I decided the caffeine was getting out of control when I realized I required caffeine so late in the day that I had to take sleeping pills at night to counteract the effects. I have to PT in the morning so I wake up at 0500 and go to sleep at 2200ish. I would drink three Monsters throughout the day as well as two cups of coffee and several Coca-Colas. Then I would take two Benadryls at night or some melatonin. I’d get headaches when I cut back, but I’d also get headaches from having so much caffeine coursing through my system.
The weed would have made quitting easier. There would be less days of headaches.-Carl Miller
