Common Questions and Answers about Cold turkey caffeine

cold

I used to drink 4 diet cokes a day and when I found out I was pregnant I quit cold turkey! I mean caffeine isn't bad for the baby. Just good too cut back on it. Sprite and 7up should be fine! But I drink lots of water and orange juice!
I gave up caffeine cold turkey for the first trimester and now i drink a small cup in the morning and am careful not to drink anymore, im glad this is semi normal hahah
What will I be expecting by quitting cold turkey, and is there anything I can do to help? I've also read something about it take up to eighteen months for the body to completely heal?
Has anyone tried to get off fentenyl cold turkey? I have been trying to wean myself off it since they changed the duralgesic because of a terrible allergic reaction to the new patch. I can't take it anymore and am thinking of doing it all at once. The allergy is a bad one and I'm spending my entire life downing benadryl and zertec by the carload and can't believe that this is better then just doing it. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
I am seeking some guidance as to how long can I expect to be sick and welcome any and all suggestions. This includes thoughts on cold turkey versus a tapering regimen. Thank you in advance for any input.
Also I wasn't eating before the Cold turkey. my apetite turned around when I had my last attack. I slowly regain it back, but since I have thrown up about twice it's a tad bit harder to regain my apetite. I do know for sure the insomnia is from the WD.
Going cold turkey is the worst and absolutely didn't work for me. Self-hypnosis was the best thing that could ever happen to me because it helps you change your habits and daily thought patterns. Winxtp.com has some good reviews about self-hypnosis programs. Personally, I like Quit Smoking Hypnotherapy because they have a instant download and a 60 day money back guarantee.
Cutting down caffeine from coffee and tea will also help. You only need half as much caffeine now to get the same effect. I'm so glad you flushed the Tramadol, it really is evil stuff. We're all thinking of you.
But I don't think I can do it. Help?? I don't think I can take the Cold Turkey pain.. How can I get thought it?? Any advice would be amazing!!! Please I need someone. Thank you for listening.

Ive been fighting opiate addiction since the age of 14 now 47 ..... Im so miserable talked to my doc about it he dont belive in giving meds for withdrawls .... So maybe this is a lesson learned .... So again.... anyone with flu like symptoms Ive had mine for about a week or more not sure because I dont know one day or a week from the next..
I am on day six of cold turkey from hydrocodone. I've been on and off for about three years. I got tired of running out and not being able to find any then going through withdrawals until I found some more. I'm tired of it running my life. I have been reading these forums for weeks for support because I can't tell my family what I have been doing. I wanted to tell you that the first few days were rough for me but mainly no energy and depression. I feel a little better every day.
I want to get off these for good and im trying to mentally prepare myself because I am starting cold turkey tomorrow and don't have any one for support and I will be doing this alone at home. I dont work because I am on disability and workers comp. I'm trying to figure out how to accomplish this and still go to therapy twice a week and live life. What makes this tough is I have a legit need for the meds but go freakin crazy when I get them, I guess this is how I got here in the first place.....
Just cut down gradually, by half a cup a day or every other day. or start using Half Caff (I forget which brand it is) that has half the caffeine, then wean yourself to decaf.
I have a question. I am currently on 30mg morphine sulfate ectended release tabs twice a day. Last week my doctor and I discussed my desire to go off the opiates eventually and he said the opiates I am on probably are not doing enough for me anyway so we talked about tapering, etc, and how that worked. We decided that since I was trying the lyrica again we wouldn't change any other scripts this month, but if I wanted to I could try to "stretch" my doses of the morphine SR.
Nobody should not be telling anybody to cold turkey off anything not just tramadol. These are drugs we are talking about here. Time and time again I read people suggesting to others "just do it" "just take the plunge" "it will not kill you" How do you know. We do not know each other all we can do is try to share our exp and try to help others and give support. Nobody really knows anybody on here!!!
i ran out of my perscription six days ago and am now on day 6 of attempting to quit cold-turkey. i have been experiencing the expected withdrawl symptoms (i did a lot of research on this and other people's experiences with trying to quit cold-turkey). i just want to know how long it is going to last. days 2 and 3 were complete misery and included several of my usual psychological symptoms.
the last ten years was Methadone. I stopped cold turkey....I have been in hell for the last 28 days. Today is the first day that I feel like a partial human being. I hope that it is uphill from here. My sneazing is out of control, stomach still irritated, but I feel like I can remove myself from the fetal position that I have been in for the last 28 days. Does anyone know how much longer it ill be until I can function again?
Well, I kinda didn't finish my story. When I originally tried this "Traditional Chinese Medicine", I was only taking these herbs for about 6 weeks. This type of healing is not supposed to be long term, and basically "rebalances your body". I noticed a difference after a few days. No heart palpitations at all and my sleep patterns were alot better as well.
I detoxed from alcohol cold turkey after many years of hard drinking and if I had it to do over again I would seek professional help. I thought a time or two I was going to die. Many have gotten by with it and unfortunately, many haven't. As open mind said above "Good for you"! One thing I can tell you through out your detox and into your recovery, always remember to Keep Your Guard Up! Best of luck to you and stay around, you will get a lot of help here.
maybe you can't get off of it cold turkey, but you CAN do a taper. Ask your doctor. I would get off of it asap. It is very addictive. Maybe there is something else you could do to treat your anxiety that is healthier?? I used to take it....or rather EAT it as fast as I could! I got off of it a few years ago and haven't had one since then! You can do it!!!
If you drink a lot I wouldn't go cold turkey but start slowly and ween yourself off. I know a lot of people drink a cup of coffee (myself included) or a soda. Talk to your doc at your first appt. Good luck and congratulations!!
I know from past experience it's so hard to find meaning in anything for days/weeks. Meaning that detracts from the hot/cold, lack of energy and constant trips to the bathroom that is anyway... I think I feel much better just making a post. I've been trolling these forums for the last year and so many stories sound like mine, albeit different circumstances. I didn't think I needed to post, but doing so I feel better I did.
You might want to throttle back on the coffee, though. Whatever you do, take it slow because cold-turkey without the caffeine can give you killer headaches. We know coffee is an irritant to our bladders - do you find you have sudden urges? Could be related. I was a huge coffee drinker before my heart attack. While in the hospital they gave me this brown cr ap that was supposedly decaf and advised that I cut down or even out the coffee.
My heart rate is slower when I drink pop/coffee than when I don't. Is it just that my body is so used to it? I tried just quiting cold turkey, so I went without caffeine for 2 days, but then I really got a bad headache. It not only helps if I get a headache, but I really crave it! So what do you think? Am I addicted? How can I get away from not drinking so much of it? Im trying to have less, but I used to drink at least 4 cans of pop a day, on top of some days having coffee too.
