Wednesday, May 20th.
That was when I had my last Mountain Dew.
The only day I had a major headache was last Friday, two days later.
Apart from that, the only symptoms I’ve noticed have been feeling extra tired. I’ve been sleeping ten hours or more most nights.
My withdrawal symptoms may be relatively minor because I’ve been going easy on myself. I’ve been letting myself have soda every day, just not caffeine.
If you’re thinking of quitting caffeine, I’d recommend doing it at a time when you can sleep in every day, especially for the first week or so.
I still don’t feel very energetic, but it’s only been a week. I do feel less irritable, though.
Overall, I’m glad I quit.
I’ll be even more glad when I stop feeling so tired.
