Slow Caffeine withdrawal

According to what I saw on the internet, here are the caffeine amounts for certain teas …


English Breakfast: 50mg

Black Tea:  40mg

Green Tea:  20 Mg


I suspect that these numbers could be inaccurate, because I sometimes have seen numbers that were higher.


Regardless, I think that it is still valid to use these numbers as a guide.  It is easy to see how I could use this to slowly decrease my caffeine intake …


Day 1:  I ingested 120 mg caffeine.

Day 2:  I ingested 100 mg caffeine.

Day 3: I ingested 90 mg caffeine.


My plan is to continue going down in increments of 10 where possible.  When I get down to 40 I might stay there a few days before going down to 20.

Fwd: It's Cold

'Historic Cold

By Andrew Adams

SALT LAKE CITY — It's not just extremely cold out there, it's bordering on historic. It's so cold you can pour water on the ground outside and it freezes in about 20 seconds.


Some of the temperatures in Utah overnight are similar to what you'd expect in Minnesota:


    -25 in Bryce Canyon

    -21 at Kimball Junction outside of Park City


Salt Lake City International Airport recorded temperatures below 0 overnight. The last time that happened was on Jan. 22, 2008 when it was -2 degrees.


Monday, Salt Lake's forecast high is 13 degrees. The last time the maximum temperature for the day was below 14 was more than 22 years ago -- Dec. 30, 1990.'
