Personally, I'm overcaffeinated as hell. I probably spend a solid 10-15 hours per week in Starbucks or some other coffee shop. I have at least two coffee drinks a day...and then I usually have a soda with my dinner.
I'll usually have a couple beers on Friday night, but I'm definitely more of a caffeine person. Too much, in fact. I need to cut the soda out of my diet and drink more water.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

I allow myself small portions of it, a half cup (a true half-cup) once every few weeks and that helps.
Stopping caffeinated drinks is very difficult. You can end up with severe withdrawal headaches and it makes you irritable.
I used to drink Amp (I still do if I need serious mental concentration, but thats EXTREMELY rare) religiously and when I stopped, it was cold turkey. I found tea to be very helpful at reducing the effects of stopping caffeine use.
Now I drink tea fairly frequently, doubly so during cold weather.

I drink so much coffee that my skin is cafe-au-lait colored.
