Today is my second day without caffeine. Yesterday I also ... snore ...

Wha? Who? ... Oh, right. Blogging.

So, a day without caffeine, I am discovering, is like a ... like a ... like a nap? grumblesnoozegrumble ...

Oops! I'm back. Really. Uncaffeinated, but conscious. Sort of.

Will The Palaverist stay caffeine-free even into his new job next week? We'll see how the next couple days go.

Update: Okay, so a cup of tea this afternoon seemed wise once the headache got serious. Cold turkey may not be the way to go. I don't know that I even need to be off caffeine at all, but I thought it might help me to sleep better — I wake up a lot in the night. So we'll see.

Wow, hard to imagine you giving up caffeine! Good luck :)

If your issue is waking up in the night, you might consider setting a cut-off hour for caffeine consumption that's 2 hours prior to your current usual last caffeine dose, and gradually moving your deadline to earlier in the day. I have a no caffeine after 3 pm rule during the workweek and it works well for me.

That's a good idea, though I usually have just my morning cup and then one in the afternoon, around 3 or 4. But maybe being more rigorous about the late-in-the-day caffeine might help.
