There are some people who just aren’t impacted by it. I went to grad school with a guy who had zero reaction to coffee. He was exactly the same no matter whether he had a half dozen cups or zero.^Woman I used to work with would drink red bulls non stop .. and.. fall asleep at her desk.
I swore off tea, coffee and soda as a youngster. Fell off the wagon on fizzy drinks recently but.. I don't worry about it too much.
If I drink coffee I can't sleep for 36 hours or so.
I also miss the ritual of walking to McDonalds in the morning to buy a coffee.I notice sleep is much better without any caffeine intake. Even when I go to sleep late tired and get only 5 hours of sleep, it's still better overall. My goal is to make it to 2021 then re-evaluate caffeine intake.
I also notice that I really miss the ritual of drinking coffee. The smell, the taste, like a junkie, you start to miss the small details.
Notice any difference in hair quality? (less dry hair etc.)3 months for me now.
I think as with every vice you cut out, the benefits aren't easing of life... The substances do a job. With caffeine, you can get a crappy 6-hour sleep in a blue light room, wake up at 5 AM down a coffee and be productive for the day. Try doing that off caffeine..
The benefits are clarity of mind and sober thought. No high, but also no low. I definitely notice more dreams, better skin, but also more of a dependent mood. I find myself with little organic motivation, but I believe these is due to the environment, and the caffeine was just a cope before.
Yeah, would expect the opposite though, since caffeine increases T/DHT and hence sebum production significantly. But could be a lot of things. You tend to eat more once you quit caffeine also, since it`s a potent appetite suppressant. So if you consume more food, and more carbs in particular, it could have the same effects of increased DHT.I have always had healthy hair, but now it's possible more oily. Hard to say.
Don't fall for the goji berry meme. In 2015 I was all on the healthy living hype and spent lots of $$$ on expensive organic food items, to include goji berries, that in hindsight were a total waste of money.
Buckwheat is one if my favorite superfoods. One of the only complete plant-based proteins. I make bread and pancakes out of it.Since my recent return to Christ around the end of July I have quit smoking cigarettes after smoking about two packs a day for nigh on 13 years. I simply promised Christ that I would quit all nicotine and I did. It was actually super easy. I've also quit smoking cannabis, not because I see anything wrong with it if it's used in moderation, and I was using it in moderation, but I stopped just to save money and remain clear minded as I begin my new spiritual regimen. Prayer and Christ centered meditation.
Now caffeine on the other hand is a real beast to quit. Those dang headaches and cravings are crippling! After reading what has been posted here I'm going to try to wean myself off of it. Wish me luck!
Edit: Oh and I have been praying for health and healing and have dramatically Improved my diet. Lots of raw garlic! Any recommendations for healthy foods?
May Christ favor you all!
Christ save Western Civilization!
