I never started.
I drink one energy drink on the weekend if my gf lets me
I used to be a hyphy soldier
>if my gf lets me
What is this recent anti caffeine movement? People acting as if it's as bad as hard drugs and alcohol.
I don't know either, I've been trying to find the angle. There's a lot of demoralization that happens on SwoleShack, almost for the sake of it
>Don't meditate, if you empty your mind satan will rush in
>Don't take up running, all you need is a hot bath for the same benefits
So maybe it is people just doing that same thing, trying to hurt other people by robbing them of something beneficial
Caffeine is bad for you
what caffeine does is, it induces a stress state in your body. over time, and repeated use, this becomes basically a chronic stress state, you're permanently fucked up, it's like being on speed every day of your life.
caffeine is good as what I have termed a 'spot drug'. Here and there, when you're in a spot that calls for it. A big hike, a big drive cross country, a 1rm day of deadlift, etc.
I still use it in the morning as a pre work out, but honestly I don't really need it. It's just a nice bonus. Eventually I won't even use that
I literally take speed every day and I'm fine
israelites and israelites want people to stop drinking coffee
>massive profits to be made because you’re selling a highly addictive and widely accepted substance
>it’s cheap to produce and can be sold for $4 a cup even though the ingredients are like $5 per pound and you only need one small scoop to make a cup someone will buy for $4
>the people who easily profit from this want you to quit though
you’re an idiot
Easy to explain, right now the biggest coffee companies are not owned by israelites, in fact the biggest company (Starbucks) is owned by an Indian. So they push anti coffee propaganda in order to lower their sales so ~~*they*~~ can potentially buy it for cheap in the future. After that they are gonna stop the anti coffee propaganda and push caffeine health benefits instead to improve their own sales.
there used to be anti coffee threads everyfucking day newfag, there used to be a general every fucking day talking about how to improve and deacclimate from all these dependencies be it as it may. Looking back it's insane how much this board has fallen, like no motivational shit to speak of, but hey as long as i got mine amirite
You are a nagger.
I saw someone post the quitting coffee Reddit page and they sound like a bunch of recovering meth heads lmao. I have no idea what's going on
I think I can explain. Millennials and zoomers are known for abusing energy drinks, and so, for many of them, caffeine is indeed a drug.
Caffeine is a metabolism booster and appetite suppresant, so it's pretty bad for bulking.
Suits are so fucking cool. Can't imagine how retarded you must be to wake up and have a choice on what you wear, and then you decide to wear jeans, a hoodie and sneakers. I hate retards like that so much. Americans should dress better
Only post that matters ITT
I don't take advice from anyone smaller than me
any claim made without a physique attached has absolutely no value
>Mom always told me that drinking coffee would make my skin darker
>never ended up with a caffeine addiction as a result
Not sure if based mom making shit up to keep her boy away from recreational drugs, or just a case of brown people believing in random tribal magic shit.
please post body I need a laugh
Nah my Indian mom does have interesting based beliefs/remedies that I still follow till day
>don't consume dairy products with fruits
>no yoghurt after sunset
>stay away from Indian street food goyslop
>stay away from anti-viral meds and pain relievers like Paracetemol as much as you can, make your body naturally heal on its own in case of common flus and colds.
Only the last one doesn't sound like pajeet voodooscience
Second to last is pretty salient given how many indian street food compilations I've seen
This shit is hard. I determined I have to quit it and found I’m just hypersensitive to stimulants. Trying to quit caffeine and nicotine. The headaches suck. The worst of it is the exhausted restlessness and the feeling like my lungs aren’t as open (vaping seems to open my airway similar to a way chewing mint gum and drinking cold water would), like I have to take a super deep breath every 5 minutes.
I need to be free of these vices. They make me too anxious simple as.
how old are you until I was around 25 I was constantly anxious and couldn't cope with my endless thoughts, like I used to not even be able to leave my room cause i was so anxious and felt like id die or something my heart rate would be nuts at the doctor, and then suddenly one day for whatever reason it just stopped, and now I can easily leave my house text people and so on. I have no idea what happened.
they finally got to you. don't listen to your programming anon now is no time to feel comfortable
I think i've just accepted my insanity and realize no one can understand wtf i'm talking about, and if they can then well maybe I helped them feel more at ease
To make a long story as short as I can,
>transform life ages 16-18, become an actually conscious self aware “normie” socially blossoming in college, fit guy great shape, becoming very confident and losing the minimal social anxiety I always had even dating now
>receive sample pre workout fat burner with some protein I bought online
>take it not checking ingredients or knowing it was a stimulant
>get hooked on the rush, idk the brand it was yellow capsule blend of whatever the fuck probably had DMAA or ECA in it
>start chasing that high with coffee, get dependent can’t study or do assignments without a pot
>turns into 2, sometimes 3 pots of straight black coffee/day, extra strong
>anxiety begins, dont make the connection until years later, but quickly turn into anxious wreck
>experiment with ECA for few months, makes it worse, stop when heart palpitations begin
>switch from caffiene to bang energy, drinking 3-4 a day (300mg each), realize over a gram of caffeine so switch to ghosts after year or so (200mg each)
>start smoking weed like a retard, makes it all worse
>wean down from 1000mg to 400mg-600mg, quit weed anxiety lessens but is unbearable still normal HR is 100-120 spikes to 150 in social settings and while driving
>start vaping to help me study because at this point caffeine does nothing beneficial but stave off the accumulated withdrawal
>anxious wreck still
Had a period where I couldnt leave my house without a panic attack. While using caffeine I’ve done a ton of exposure to get back how I was and have overcome a lot. Week ago skipped caffeine for a few days and my anxiety dropped by like 50%. Started again, generally only 200mg a day.
So Ive determined I need to quit the stims be true sober, give it time and I’m sure I will revert back to how I was. Im late 20s. I believe quitting these, and not beating off 5-10x a day anymore will kill all my anxiety.
Godspeed anon, quit that stuff and your life will change. Let’s go
Thank you bro. I want to be my best self, no reliance on drugs or vices.
All this being said, if after I manage to quit both after 6 months there’s no tangible improvements and I’m wrong about this, I’m just going to resort to using beta blockers as needed. During interviews, first dates, if I want to go out and socialize etc.
But I don’t think I’m wrong about this, the anxiety got bad around the same time I switched from a cup of coffee once a week to a pot a day.
Thanks king, I haven’t had any regularly since about a year ago. The restfulness gains are insane and it’s nice to have it actually work on me when I do need it.
I had to quit caffeine because my blood pressure's been getting high. I'm so fucking sleepy bros.
i switched from coffee to caffeine pills. feel 10x better
I lost 20 kg in 60 days by having one meal a day and drinking coffee to fool my hunger
Bros I have a huge headache and it’s only been 24 hours without caffeine. Is this normal?
Yes, that's a classic withdrawal symptom for caffeine.
Yes. Take Tylenol and Advil and power through
Why would I quit caffeine
