I have done it. A few of you may remember my plan for quitting coffee. I didn't believe it was possible but I have done it.
Michael, over at Peconic Puffin gave me the best advice...slowly wean myself from the juice and it will cut back on withdrawals. I started in January and was down to 1 cup a day the weekend before last. Then I got sick and was laid out in bed. Score! If I was going to feel miserable, have a headache, and feel like throwing up anyway, why not throw some detox time in too.
A friend had told me that I would only have detox symptoms for ~5 days. Well, he was wrong, I had the afternoon headaches for 9 days but I've now had 3 straight days with no symptoms and think I'm off of the stuff finally.
Now, I can sail to Hawaii.
