    ...As I sit here sippin a cup of java...More power to you. I used to drink a ton of coffee, but decided I needed to cut down. So, now I have only 2 a day. Same with soda. In fact, I would love to just give that one up for good.

    I cut back on my caffeine intake about two weeks ago. I didn't give it up completely, but I limit myself to one cup of coffee a day. My energy level is so much higher. I drink a lot more water and just generally feel a lot better. Stick with it. You'll feel great in a few days.

    My hats off to you!

    Just think "one moment at a time" when the urge comes. . .

    (Now. . . I should practice what I preach! I drink GALLONS of coffee at night!)

    Remember. . . "one moment at a time"!

    Maybe you should just taper instead of going cold turkey!

    Seriously, take some ibuprofen and keep walking . . . .

    Good luck.

    One day at a time...
    If I could only quit my habit....
    food....
    Its tough to be Italian, eat when happy, eat when sad, eat, eat, eat. ...
    According to my grandmother, there ain't nothing that a little bit of food won't cure.
