Caffeine Detox - Part II

It has been a little over a month since I undertook my caffeine detox. The most noticeable benefit of this detox is that I sleep great. As soon as I put my head on the pillow each night, I am out cold and sleep deeply the whole night through.

In the past, my wife packed a can of Diet Coke along with the kids' sippy cups and snacks before we would leave the house. Now, without caffeine, my wife told me that she noticed that I have a renewed energy level and am not as sluggish when I get home from work.

I feel much calmer and peaceful without caffeine. At the same time, I notice that those around me seem to be hyped-up and easily irritated. For the time being, I will stay away from soda and coffee and see if this detox has other positive benefits.

Good luck with it. It sounds like it is really working well.

Congrats! Keep it up - It seems that there's no down side, why would you want to go back?
Sounds like you're living a poison-free life.

Anonymous: Water. Instead of drinking a LARGE coffee and two or three Diet Cokes a day, now I just drink a lot of water.
