Re: Caffiene! How Much-How Little and Why?

I quit caffeine 25 years ago...and it was tough as I was very addicted to it. However, I have fibroid cysts in my breast and was having irregular heartbeats from so much of it. I drank hot tea so the coffee wasn't an issue (quit coffee years before when I quit smoking and it didn't taste right any more!). I went to decaf and herbal teas and no soft drinks other than ginger ale when I have an upset stomach. So I mostly drink my tea and water and a glass of wine a day...and that's it. It is odd though that I HAVE to have that cup of decaf tea in the AM! I think it's jsut the "idea" of it and that it's warm...I certainly feel better and sleep better since I got off the stuff - and I don't do chocolate either are it has caffeine in it.
