I do indeed like coffee, but unfortunately (please don’t laugh) I can only drink decaf now because regular ☕️ will sometimes trigger a panic attack. 🙁

L-theanine stops the conversion of dopamine into adrenaline. This is why green tea isn’t as stressful an experience as black tea or coffee. You can buy l-theanine tablets all over the place. I take one with coffee every time and that has resovled the issue of coffee stressing me out.

Hey that’s completely fine, I just quit coffee some weeks ago. It’s sooo much better for the ol’ anxiety

Have you tried chocolate? Turns out both coffee, tea, and chocolate, have caffeine in them. There are different % cacao chocolates, might be easier to tune the dose, and they come in more flavors… (yay, addiction! 😅)

Not laughing at all, I think it’s great that you identified the trigger and had the willpower to cut it out of your life.

Regular coffee, though extremely popular, has its down sides. Unfortunately lots of people and scientific research prefer to focus on the pros of coffee. For people who for example need to be careful with dealing with stimuli, it makes sense to drink something else than coffee. A search engine search for caffeine stress mental health may bring about some less known information about this. And I know from experience that once you’re completely off regular coffee life is different. It may take a few weeks for that.
