This is the weirdest thing in the world and I have mentioned this before about regular coffee but here I am to say the same about decaf coffee. When I quit regular coffee I notice this change after the horrible withdrawal side effects faded. It makes me more impulsive and out of control. It’s the weirdest thing and I bet I am the only person to come up with this lol. I notice the same is true with decaf. It’s whatever chemical is in this stuff makes it so maybe I am more tired and less likely to fight it? But I gain weight when drinking both regular and decaf coffee. It’s like I don’t care or something. As the day goes on I eat more and care less. Perhaps my brain is more tired from the coffee. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.
I am happy to be away from the caffeine because I noticed now when I drink it I totally crash. But I am addicted to even the decaf when I drink it has to be two cups. The more I have the more I want. I don’t experience the withdrawals I have when I stop regular coffee.
So here I am to quit decaf too. I am sad as I love it but it’s like I go off the rails. My weight is almost up to 170lbs.
