How is this viewed as so harmless.. I quit drinking coffee two days ago.. and I have the worst headache I have ever had in my life.. I mean it's horrible.

Anyone get some major withdrawls from quitting caffeine?.. Holy hell I didn't know it could get this bad.

I used to have a lot of stomach discomfort when I drank a lot of tea and soda. Now that I've cut out caffeine I feel just fine.

Well, I'll have a coke or something when I go out to eat, but I'm not drinking it all day like I used to.

Caffeine is a drug that effects brain chemistry. It is an addictive substance and if you develop a dependence you have to go through with drawl like any other drug. They say it's relatively harmless but considering it's a drug that changes brain chemistry and raises your heart rate I can't be sure that's entirely accurate. That being said I gave it up for Lent although chances are I'll pick it up again down the road.

I generally drink a pot a day, and I'll stop for a few weeks at a time here and there without any symptoms.

I used to abuse caffeine, then I quit ... and now I just drink morning coffee or tea. Caffeine consumed in responsible amounts has little negative effects.

I used to drink at least 3 pepsi's a day. If I didn't have a can of pepsi within 4 hours of waking up, I would get a headache that would only go away with Tylenol & some kind of caffeine. I got a little more health conscious, I knew that consuming that much sugar a day cannot be good for you. I knew for awhile that my headaches were the results of withdrawal. So I stopped all caffeine intake. I had a horrible headache that lasted for about 3 days, and started to get better on the 4th day. After a week, the headache was gone. I haven't had any caffeine in almost 3 years, and I haven't had a single headache since.

I have 20 oz of coffee in the morning, and nothing else the rest of the day, not even soda. Do I feel like I need it? Sometimes. Do I think I have an addiction? No.

I worry far more about those who are pounding 5-Hour Energy and Monsters all day just to get by.

Agreed. Those things are scary and people think they're harmless.

I have 2 cups of coffee in the morning. A tea at lunch and one at 2. Works for me anyway.

I don't need to be "energizer bunny" for most of the day.

I remember after the first time I drank Mountain Dew, I drank usually 1+ a day (I really love the taste) for a couple weeks, until my mom didn't buy a box of them one week and I felt like a crack addict who needed his fix after a couple days lol... Nowadays I still drink usually one can of Mountain Dew a day (again, I love the taste). If I don't drink it for a couple days, I'll miss the taste (but nothing severe), but if I'm drinking something like Snapple or Apple Juice (stuff that I like to drink that just tastes good), I'll probably forget about the MD.

My choice of frequent caffeine consumption has given me cardiac dysrhythmia. I should probably dramatically decrease or even cease consumption very soon. Lying in bed I can feel my heart. It's unnerving.

I drink soda sometimes. As far as I'm aware, the caffeine content is pretty low, so I'm not really worried about dependence. But I stay away from coffee and energy drinks entirely. I know plenty of people who just can't get going without caffeine and feel like crap when they have to go without it. As someone who already is into the tobacco and alcohol, I don't need another drug to get dependent on.

That's probably because caffeine is an appetite suppressant, and if you're not fat your risk for all those diseases goes down.
