The reason for this is the ‘Caffeine Storm’; when the body is denied the drug, all the caffeine which has been stored in the body is released into the blood stream, and in effect causes a form of caffeine poisoning. The resulting headache is particularly severe, and in fact caffeine addicts are used to test the efficacy of headache drugs. Typically, as soon as tea or coffee is taken even in a small amount the headache eases, but the same cannot be said for the depression which often accompanies caffeine withdrawal. Some people feel down for several days. Occasionally after complete withdrawal, the depression can last for months. Homoeopathic treatment for caffeine addiction can be helpful, or mild symptoms can often be relieved by putting a grain of coffee or a couple of drops of tea under the tongue. The above information is not meant to discourage you from cleaning some of the caffeine out of your system – on the contrary, your bowel, kidneys and nervous system would welcome this – it has been included to help you to understand that some of the everyday things we drink are powerful drugs and some people will experience drug withdrawal symptoms; cut down slowly if you are one of the unlucky ones. You can do this by mixing decaffeinated coffee with your usual blend then increasing the amount of it until you are drinking all decaffeinated. If you drink filter instead of instant coffee you get fewer solids.
