    I had to stop all caffeine and decaf due
    to gastritis. The withdrawals are bad.
    How long do they last?

    When I quit caffeine I had BAD headaches for anout 2 weeks. If I drink it now, I'll have a headache that day or the next without fail. It's hard, but stick with it!!!

    I had to eliminate all caffeine from my diet due to heart problems.

    My doctor insisted that I do it gradually -- he said some people who quit it cold turkey end up in the hospital!!

    It's like withdrawing cold turkey from a narcotic!

    I did it gradually and still ended up with a severe headache for about a week.

    Good luck!
