    I did quit caffeine for a few weeks, probably not long enough to get back to normal. If I switch to green tea, I'm drinking 12 bags a day.

    Making my own Kombucha is saving me 416 dollars a year, minus the cost of green tea and sugar to feed the culture. Easiest way to quit soda, if you can't cold turkey it.

    As for coffee, being an aspie/neanderthal/ADD person, I really believe Mark's version of optimum substance intake is correct for me. Moderate to high protein with organ meats, animal fats galore, fish, wild greens/good veggies/fruit/berries, nuts and coffee. Heck, sometimes I wonder if this way of eating really does suit some people genetically better than others, because some people are on here whining and moping while others, myself included, are freaking thriving. I mean, I just drank a bowl of tallow, bone broth, spices and herbs after I ate the veggies I cooked in it. It was AWESOME. Yesterday? Pound of liver + wild stinging nettle and more! What is left to crave when my body is PACKED with everything good?! No, it's not fru-fru. But it's whole. And coffee is a huge part of that.

    Just found this. Looks interesting.

    coffee is not a legume. It's just called a bean because of it's resemblance to true beans
    Coffee bean - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I drink coffee because I like the taste. The caffeine probably does have something to do with it, but I recently missed having my morning coffee and didn't go into withdrawal. I also like tea, but can't drink it on an empty stomach. It makes me nauseous. I drink 2 to 3 cups a day.

    Did you also defeat caffeine? If so, can you tell me how you did it?
    You just do it.

    You tell yourself that it will hurt, and you go through the pain.

    It's really not more difficult than this.

    Do you understand this? Do you really understand it?

    I convert heroic quantities of coffee and pure, seething rage into artwork. So... I tend to like caffeine.

    This popular school of thinking, and it is difficult for me to even call it 'thinking', will tell you that some people are prone to addiction while others are not.

    This is pure bullshit.

    The difference between an addict and a moderate user is that the latter accepts and deals with his pain while the former gives in to the pain.

    You accept the pain and you live it, then you are not an addict.

    It is that simple.

    You listen to me, don't listen to anyone that will write you paragraphs on addiction.

    Yes, Dado, we understand it. That works for many people. But not everyone knows the tools and is good at using them. For example, instead of getting bored and thinking about not partaking, you've got to find something better to do. The list of necessary behaviors and activities to quit something is long, and not everyone has learned enough of these tools to beat things on their own. It boils down to education.

    I can't save the world, Knifegill.

    Nature mercilessly favors the strong.

    How did I develop my thinking? By putting in the work. If a person is not willing to work, let him addict himself.

    Even those willing to work must be taught how. There are not enough teachers in this world.

    Its by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion
    Its by the beans of Java the thoughts acquire speed
    The teeth acquire stains
    The stains become a warning.
    Its by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
