How long can YOU go without caffiene??

For me it's about 12 hours appx. I end up suffering withdrawal syndromes after that point :)

Sounds like an actual problem you have on your hands there. If I don't have caffeine, I sleep...not withdraw.. :/

Also, I thought this topic was about something else entirely when I looked at the title.

So did I.

I have tea and coffee randomly so I never really have any withdrawal problems.

Well I wake up at 430, and on tuesdays I have lab until 930, meaning I don't get to go to bed until midnight. I brew said coffee about 545, and it's gone by 900, so by the time I get to lab the caffeine is all gone out of my system. If I go to lab without coffee I start fucking up hardcore (see my 2nd lab). Friday is friday, and I don't work saturdays, and so I usually stay up all night and dick around on the internet/games.

I drink it a lot at work because its there, and I'm just sitting on my ass. If I didn't have two jobs, I'm sure I could avoid caffeine altogether, but as of now, I need at least one cup a day.

I don't drink coffee frequently, I don't want to become dependent on. Every now and then I will drink something that has coffee in it such soy milk or ice cream. Nothing against the caffeine lovers out there, just not me.

I have a strict rule: I never drink caffeine when I'm actually sleeping. Other than that, it's pretty much a constant drip system.

I'm trying to cut down on my caffeine consumption so when I get up I just have one cup of coffee and I like to have another cup of coffee with my breakfast and on the way to work I like to get a cup of coffee - like the kind of cup of coffee that you get with a doughnut cept I never get the doughnut I just have the cup of coffee - and when I get to work I like to have a cup of coffee cause I like to have a coffee when I'm talking on the phone, but it usually goes cold and I need to get another cup of coffee and it's lunch and I have an espresso, and when I get back it's not morning anymore so I have a diet cola and another diet cola and by then I'm feeling fine and I'm feeling pretty sharp and I'm feeling pretty wired and I'm getting things done but right about two I get this little tiny migraine and it starts behind my eyes and it moves to the back of my neck and it moves to the bottom of my spine but it doesn't get there until five or six o'clock which is the end of the day so I'm fine!


But actually, I usually just have a single cup of coffee when I get to work, and I mix in a packet of swiss miss hot chocolate mix, it's awesome.

Agreed. Cutting off caffeine is like cutting off oxygen... Oh, wait, you meant the second part?

I used to take weekends off, but that's a drag. It's 6am here on Saturday and I've already downed a Monster. I'm about to go take my morning walk, a little over a mile. I've tried is sans stimulants, but it's just not as much fun.

I also just fixed a nasty bug in some code... I can't really program on other drugs, which might be part of the problem. Wait, no, I don't have a problem... ;)

I'm one of those weird guys who don't drink coffee. Weird, huh?
