When I drank coffee for about a year, I didn't have any noticeable impairments, at least nothing that slapped me in the face.

The withdraws though... oh god the withdrawals.

My withdrawals are a couple of lazy days, with a nasty headache about 24 to 30 hours after the last cup. Are yours much worse than this?

Haha nah, I'm just overdramatizing the headaches I got - I'm a little baby. They did make me slip back a few times though.

After I cut out the coffee, I had probably about two days of withdraws, then stopped noticing anything.
