    and has anyone quit entirely?

    At my worst I was well over a gram/day. Down to around 300mg now and trying to cut more.

    For reference:
    scoop of preworkout = 100-300mg
    Caffeine pill = 200mg
    Monster energy = 160mg
    Coffee = 100mg
    Red Bull = 80mg
    Iced tea = 70mg
    Soda = 50mg
    Green tea = 25mg

    I don’t drink coffee, but crush three to four Coke Zeroes per day.

    I used to drink a ton of coffee and monsters but now I’m down to one cup of coffee in the morning and that’s usually not everyday.

    I normally drink one cup of coffee and maybe a caffeinated black tea. However many grams that is.

    Rarely drink sodas.

    I don’t know how people don’t drink enough water. I’ve worked with people who drink a cup or 2 of coffee in the morning and a coke at lunch but that’s all they drink during a 8-10 hour period. I drink a gallon of water a day and I don’t know how they aren’t miserable from being dehydrated.

    • Breakfast coffee
    • Mid morning coffee
    • After lunch coffee
    • After work coffee

    If it's a non work day the schedule's a little less regular and sometimes a coffee can get switched out for another caffeine source. I get headaches and bad withdrawals if I don't use pretty much on that schedule.

    Yes, I’m aware of the chemicals and artificial sweeteners in diet soda, and, no, I don’t give a fuck.

    I am also a non-coffee drinker and also have a few diet sodas throughout the day. Apparently, according to this thread, I should be ashamed of myself.

    I'm usually well under the 200mg per day, but it depends on what I'm doing.

    One cup of coffee on most work days. I'll have a pop every now and then, mostly on an airplane. I think I've heard people say there is caffeine in chocolate, so I guess that sometimes too. That's it.

    I drink three 16 oz mugs of coffee every morning and two shots of espresso around 3 p.m. With a coke zero at lunch, I'm probably pushing 1 gram a day.
