I learned yesterday that caffeine withdrawal is a real thing. In the past, my idea of caffeine withdrawal was, "Oh, I have a migraine because I haven't had my coffee," or "I'm in a bad mood this morning because I haven't had my coffee," or "I went on that killing spree because I haven't had my coffee." But yesterday -- no, it was full on body aches, chills, heart palpitations, and nausea. I felt like I had a weird flu. Of course, I didn't take into account just how much caffeine I'd been having.

@Dananner I tried drinking a few caffeinated sodas but it didn't help. I'd been having an outrageous amount of caffeine between cold brew and multiple cups of matcha each day lol

@KnicksRIP exceedingly migraine has a good dose of caffeine. When I step down, I use black tea and the Awake caffeinated chocolate - just one per day, and advil for the headaches and etc

@KnicksRIP Hint water also makes caffeineited water to help with the transition and keep you hydrated.
