I'm trying to quit a 10 year+ habit, last year I had 6 shots of espresso daily (into my thermos in the morning), before that idk, maybe averaging 4 or 5. I tapered down to 1 shot a day over a month and now I've been doing 1 shot a day for at least 4 weeks but I still feel mentally handicapped. The biggest problem is that my mind is a lot slower (makes studying/essay writing hard). How long do you think this will last, at least 3-4 months or a lot longer? At 1 shot a day I still feel way below baseline. Although I'm also curious as to see what my "baseline" of mental functioning would be, exactly.

I'm finally over it. It took 3 months and a bit (I tapered down too fast initially). I've been almost completely caffeine free for 2 weeks now except for a bit of dark chocolate. I have to say I'm liking it. I feel smarter. I couldn't control myself with caffeine. Sleep is much much better. There's a lot to say about it all. I'm glad I did it. I had a hunch coffee was a net detriment, and now I can confirm that it is/was. I'll save caffeine for exams etc - I will use it sparingly. Btw I had a shot of espresso today lol because I needed to do something. It reminded me why I hated it. It turns me into a chatterbox. And I get so many useless thoughts and conversations going in my head, arguments, etc. I'm happy to admit that daily use is not for me.

Congratulations. I'm also on withdrawal phase day 2 lol. Seens I'm a NEET atm its easier than if I had a job or studying... Yesterday I woke up at 12h00 and I slept again at 13h30 then woke up at 14h30 then slept again at 16h00 for 30 mins then again jn the evening around 20h and Inwoke up 22h. I didnt know I was so sleep deprived damn... the worst part for me is the muscle soreness from the gym sessions 2 days ago also I feel all my bones aching. But weirdly enough I have a very mild headache.

I get really vivid dreams now. Its something to look forward to. My sleep is sometimes broken but it is almost always really refreshing.
