I weaned myself from drinking 3-4 pots a day to only 1 1/2 cups. To wean yourself off of any caffeine, try doing half caffeine anf half non-caffeine. Not did I do this with coffee. I did it with Diet Mnt. Dew and regular diet Mnt. Dew. One caffeine and then caffeine free. Back and forth. I STILL LOVE MY COFFEE!!! IN which it is a must have first thing in the morning! *and maybe I sneak a cup in afternoon if I need a boost* ;-)
