I drink two large mugs of tea each morning to get me started. Many mornings I awake very early with headache, so I take paracetomol with added caffeine. This gives me a buzz and wakes me up, clears the headache - gets my bowels going and I can think clear, be creative and sense euphoria. I have a good day, feeling fine.
However, many days I have a 'dull head' and no amount of tea, paracetomol or chocolate will get rid of it. I have to 'ride it' for the day - the 'fuzzy head' only going towards the end of the day. The only solution is a conscious effort to get rest and try to get bed early. I never sleep well. my wife sleeps in another room due to my restlessness and snoring.
I am aware that I am in trouble with this but every time I try to withdraw from the caffeine I get severe headaches - even migraine. I am looking for a solution. I am starting by only having the caffeine in the morning and soft drinks or de-caffienated tea during the day.
I hope it works. My life is blighted with this problem now.
[Reported Dose: "7-8 cups tea a day + paracetomol 'extra' "]
