@stardot Yeah (barring the occasional bottle of coke over the last year). No coffee, no tea (except green tea).
I do wonder if quitting caffeine made giving up the booze easier, with alcohol being a depressant and caffeine a stimulant, the absence of both meant neither could mess with my nervous system much. It was certainly a smoother transition than the last time I attempted a sober lifestyle (18 months, 2017-2018).
@andy it may have, personally I find both substances are the cause of and solution to background anxiety so quitting both could break the cycle.
