could use some good suggestions here for finally getting off caffeine (POP, to be specific!)... i am a self-professed Mtn Dew (diet) addict. i drink at least 32 oz almost every day. i LOVE the taste of Mtn Dew, but also i know my body has become completely dependent on the caffeine content.
i've tried to come off of it in the past, and honestly have done it several times. but each time i start back up with the pop, i drink more than i did before and hence, the addiction becomes worse.
any suggestions for WHAT to sub with? i need that carbonation (at least to start my process) and could probably use a little caffeine too...thinking of going with Sandee's Pepsi max for a while and doing 1 per day until i'm past the caffeine withdrawl and then weaning off altogether. i don't foresee myself going cold turkey because i'm a nurse, working 5 days a week and the headaches and physical symptoms i will have could prevent me from focusing at work.
