125 days strong and counting

Last posted an update when I was 3 weeks in here.
Bit of a TL;DR for going decaf. My caffeine consumption came from pre-workouts, caffeine tablets and energy drinks. Right before I went on decaf I was probably consuming close to 1g of caffeine a day (2 tablets at 200mg per tablet in a morning, 3 scoops of pre-workout at 250mg per scoop at the gym, and maybe an energy drink through the day/or other fizzy drinks containing caffeine).
Got to a point where I was feeling nothing off that amount besides a bad night's sleep and a wave of anxiety.
Went cold turkey and started to notice improvements straight away. Sleep was noticeably better. Weirdly when I was taking that much pre-workout at the gym around 7pm, I never had a problem actually getting to sleep so I always figured I could handle the caffeine well. Just could never figure out why I felt worse the morning after haha
As the days and weeks went on noticed more improvements like more stable levels of energy through the day, more motivation, better feeling of well being, improved mental health etc. All positives.
Even now over 4 months later still feel like a million times more productive than I was before. I got furloughed from work in April, and since then me and a few friends set up a small online business, I've done jobs around the house I'd been putting off for months and years, picked up some new hobbies/skills such as forex trading.
Mood has also been a big one that's improved. There'd be times I'd be short and snap at my girlfriend. We'd get in to arguments because I'd have a short temper and such, and would just lead to putting a downer on some days because I snapped at something stupid. Feel a lot calmer and a hell of a lot less in terms of mood swings now.
My diet and sleep regime has always been strict with my powerlifting training, which I feel attributes to the lack of side effects in the early days. I think it was the 3rd day I really noticed a difference and never really got any cravings for a caffeine "pick-me-up". I still have the caffeine tablets in my supplement cupboard and not thought about taking them once.
My morning supplement stack is:
Multivitamin Fish oil Vitamin D 6mg Boron 250mg vitamin B6 powder Pinch of Himalayan salt mixed in to glass of lime juice
The lime juice/himalayan salt/vitamin b6 powder is my go-to morning drink for an energy boost now. I promise you this will give you a buzz like your morning coffee used to.
The multivitamin and fish oil are pretty basic supplements to take. Vitamin D I was already taking from the winter and just keep it in my stack. Boron as I think it's a hard mineral to get from food, and has some great benefits in hormone levels in men that studies have shown. High dose of vitamin b6 for its role with hormone balance as well, and as well as its role in the functioning of HPA axis helping regulate adrenal and stress response.
Pre-bed supplements are just 5-HTP and ZMA.
Opted for a stim free pre-workout at the gym as well, and feel much better on it with much more energy throughout my workout and all around feel like my performance in the gym has much improved. I've read studies on how caffeine and it's role on cortisol can then have a negative effect on testosterone levels, coupled with poor night's sleep, so I'm attributing it to a much better hormone balance now.
Giving up decaf has been great for me and I've advised family and friends to try it too, but I think the improvements in day-to-day life are only as good as what your day-to-day regime is in terms of diet and sleep and water in take. I drink about 4 litres a day minimum, for example. I think if you're lacking in these areas, then you're gonna still have those dips in energy etc where before you'd cover it up with caffeine.
Hoping it's a good read for someone anyway!
