  • >>> Help me with my drug addiction..

    :salams

    I am in need of help with fighting this addicition of mine. The drug in question is the dreaded caffiene :(

    I drink two cups of tea a day.

    If I don't drink a cup of tea in the morning, by the afternoon I have a brain-busting headache. It's so painful that when I go down for sajdah, the pain is so bad I have to get up quickly.

    Now as we're fasting I can't have that cup in the morning so I just did what I have been the last few Ramadans and have a cup for suhoor and that suffices me for the day. But now as the length of the fast has increased, by 7:30- 8:00pm I have this excruciating headache. Even if I have the tea a short while later at Iftar it doesn't help at all. Tea only prevents my headache but cannot cure it at all.

    So I end up with the worst headache through the night which badly disrupts my nighttime ibadah as all I can bare to do is sleep. :(

    I actually decided to leave tea altogether for last nights Iftar and the suhoor after that in an attempt to give up caffiene "cold turkey". So the whole day so far I've had this murderous headache. After getting back from Duhr at the masjid it seems sajdah has made it worse and now I'm just lying in bed in a lot of pain.

    Any tips on dealing with this problem? Has anyone had the same problem and given up caffiene? How long did it take to get off it?

    Thanks.

      Time course of caffeine withdrawal. The caffeine withdrawal syndrome follows an orderly time course. Onset usually occurs 12 to 24 hours after terminating caffeine intake, although onset as late as 36 hours has been documented. Peak withdrawal intensity has generally been described as occurring 20 to 48 hours after abstinence. The duration of withdrawal has most often been described as ranging between 2 days and 1 week, although longer durations have been occasionally noted.
      According to this research it could take even a week! I can't seem to even perform normal daily functions. Don't know how I will handle going to work :S

        my sister said an apple reduces (does not stop) the pain of caffeine headache. I don't know personally, I never had a problem with caffeine.

                    also any drug stays in your system for longer then the effect.

                    so the headaches and stuff will go away before the caffine leaves your system, i think.

                    in the meantime just try to take it easy. computers generally dont help headaches because of the screen light.

                          Same issue here. Yesterday being the first day was a nightmare. I always have m coffee before 10:30ish but yesterday I got to work at that time, an hour and a half late but of well. Within an hour I had a headache and just fell asleep onmy office until someone came by with a question and I woke up. It made the feelig worse cuz I was sleepy tired with a headache and no caffeine. Today I have a faint headache im hoping by tomorrow I will be okay. I jut couldn't function at all yesterday.

                            It's different for different people. Some people can be effected by as little as 100mg of caffiene per day. Sometimes the onset of the withdrawal starts as quickly as 12 hours as it does for me but for others it can be 36 hours after their last caffiene dose.

                            Most commonly withdrawal lasts 48 hours but can go for up to a week and some cases longer.

                            And some people (50%) don't experience headaches at all but instead get nausea, irritability, depression, anxiety and even flu-like symptoms.

                            Luckily I only get the headaches and my nausea seems to have subsided.

                              I must have weakened my fast by 50% by spazzing at everyone.
