Resetting your caffeine (coffee) tolerance

ipsedixit | Feb 24, 200907:45 PM     23

Having been a longtime coffee drinker, I've come to the conclusion that the same exact brew of Joe simply doesn't have the same caffeine kick it used to have for me.

I'm thinking about going cold turkey from all (or nearly all) caffeinated products (coffee included) to reset my body's internal caffeine reservoir and tolerance.

My thinking is 7 days.

My understanding is that caffeine has a half-life of 5 hours. So I figure 7 days should be plenty.

Anyone else try this?

If so, does it work?
