I thought about that, but I was worried; as the last time I gave up caffeine cold turkey I was miserable for days with headaches. I didn’t want to repeat that, so I figured weaning off would probably be better.[/quote]
That is a symptom of caffeine withdrawal. I go through this every few months. In fact I just did this last week and started People Chow soon after. To be as impartial as possible, I would highly recommend going cold turkey off caffeine (and alcohol, if applicable) for a minimum of four days then switching to Soylent to have as impartial and unbiased of an experience as possible.
I purposefully go through cold turkey withdrawals because caffeine loses its effectiveness for me after 4-5 months of daily use. I get daily headaches and other withdrawal symptoms, but drawn out over… forever. If I just cut the cord I get it over with, then I can use caffeine whenever I want with normal, unaddicted effects. In other words, I start the cycle over again.
