Default Re: Who here had quit coffee coz it was fueling their anxiety?

I dont care what anyone says, ive come to the conclusion that no one is taking away my meager 1 cup of coffee a day. I'll use 1 tea spoon (from now on) of coffee to make that cup. which i believe is quite moderate. Thank you for sharing your experiences everyone, it helped me make my mind.

I switched mine to decaf. Even decaf makes me jittery. Switched again to hot chocolate... of course even that has a tiny amount of caffeine that can trigger anxiety.

But usually I can tolerate decaf and hot chocolate. I will be traveling this week which kicks off my anxiety so I am trying to take it easy even with hot cocoa and decaf. Unreal huh?

Not unreal. I totally get it. We all have our triggers. After living with our anxiety for so long we can't help but become an amateur Master of workings of our anxiety. We see and recognize patterns that it follows over and over, triggers that sets it off. Anyways, I'm digressing. Hope you have a anxiety free trip dear friend.
