How much coffee per day are you (I assume) cold-turkey'ing off of?

A couple of years ago I spent a 4th of july long weekend cold turkeying from 4+ cups a day. It's a good thing that my boss was vacation for the next week, because even after the 2-4 day headache was gone, I accomplished zip for about a week.

thankfully, I was only doing about 2 shots of espresso and 30oz of soda per day. Not too much, I'm actually able to come in to work today. Nothing like the time I spent breaking the habit last december. At that point I was doing more like 6 shots per day (same soda level), and had a tolerance so high I could do 15 shots before lunch without getting jitters. That second-day headache had me almost unable to walk. Today is nothing comparatively.

For me, no painkiller in the world would help the caffeine withdrawal headaches. Try an ice pack, though, if you run into the same problem.

I'll keep that in mind, but I think I've lucked out by not letting my habit get too high this time so the withdrawal pains are reasonably minor.
