I told myself I would give up the stuff this year but I have already gotten back into drinking it. I know it is part of the reason my sleep is a bit of a mess. I started getting headaches after 3 days of not having any and because I could not concentrate at work, I ended up giving up. What is something I can do to help with this? So I don't get the withdrawal symptoms?

I am not sure there is any way to prevent it but you can ease the withdrawal symptoms. How are you getting your caffeine? If it is through coffee/energy drinks, then switch to tea and if it is from tea, switch to a low-caffeine soda. If it is soda, then try incorporation natural chocolate in your diet. This way you get some caffeine and you can slowly move off it.

I think cutting back is easier than going cold turkey, same with any addiction but you have to be able to control yourself while doing this. How much do you drink a day?

Focus on eating foods that will give you energy. Good quality protein like eggs, vegetables of any kind, and citrus fruits should help.

When I gave up energy drinks a few years ago, I felt awful for about 10 years. After that, I started to feel better. It took some time but after 3 weeks of being off the stuff, I felt good again. I just managed the withdrawal by drinking water and taking vitamin C.

If you want to go cold turkey, which most people do, you are just going to have to deal with it. 

When I stopped drinking it due to sleep issues I was having, I felt awful for maybe 5 or 6 days but then felt fine after. The headaches are the worst of it.

I think just drinking more water helps. I mean coming off anything your body was addicted to is not going to be easy but so long as you get enough rest and hydrate yourself, you can make it through.

I am not sure how much you drink each day in terms of caffeine but not matter what you do, your body is going to crave it for at least a week. Maybe try taking time off work when you give it a go next?
