    Very limited amounts. Triggers are a personal thing.

    Hey Kristy. I was a big coffee drinker all my life. Then about 5 weeks ago I started having heightened anxiety, with chest pains and stuff. I'm still dealing with it all, but one thing I did was cut coffee out of my life completely. I'm afraid it'll cause panic or make my panic worse. But I do drink tea sometimes....personally, I've had no issues with Asian tea (like Oolong) and herbal stuff. Give it a try! But yeah...I do miss my pot of coffee a day...haha. Maybe decaf is a good option? I haven't tried that yet. 

    Best, 

    Nicholas

    I drank coffee for years with no problems (actually made me happier LOL) but when my anxiety got bad it scared me since it's a "trigger" and "stimulant" so I gave it up. I'll drink decaf which has a very small amount of caffeine in it or sometimes half caf. I'd like to get back to drinking a cup of coffee a day which I'm working toward since for me it's more of a mind over matter thing

    Sadly I'm a caffeine addict. I limit myself now to one cup of small coffee a day. I wish I could give it up because it does increase my anxiety for an hour or so, but I'm weak lol.
