How to Break a Caffeine Addiction

Quit Slowly 1 of 11

Whether you are planning on simply cutting back on caffeine or cutting it out entirely, no one expects you to go from 10 cups a day to nothing in one fell swoop. So take it slow and cut back a little at a time or you will suffer some very real withdrawals, including headache, fatigue and flu like symptoms. Caffeine may be legal, but it is a drug, and your body will miss it and react accordingly. Wean off it gradually over a period of weeks.
