Subject: Taking Tolerance Break?
 

I have a substantial tolerance to coffee and was wondering how long it should take? I am also worried about my metabolism being off since it is useful in keeping me regular. I love coffee and don't want to have to give it up. I was thinking a week.

How much are you drinking?  If it's several cups a day, you'll feel really lousy for about a week.  You might try just cutting down, or mixing "real" and decaf (I have decaf most weekends, but about 20% "real" beans makes it taste considerably better).

OTOH, what does it matter if you have a caffeine habit, unless it's giving you problems like irregular heartbeat or sleep disturbances?

And what do you mean by tolerance?

I can drink it any time of the day and still go straight to sleep, but it's not exactly tolerance. It's chemistry. I had a pharmacist I know try to explain it once and it went over my poor wee nursie head.

I used to not be able to drink it much after 3 without staying up all night. Sometimes, what you think is caffeine tolerance is changing metabolism.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

do you game?:

Thanks Alex!  The citation links in that article (circa 2010, 2008, 2007, and Amazon) are still available as well.
Cheers, Chris
