I have cut out caffiene, I have pretty much had nothing but water and green tea (decaf) for the past few months. One of "good" things about this is that I'm not awake worrying or feeling anxious, I just wake up every few hours for no reason at all, and then cant get back to sleep. I am so glad you're trying acupuncture! It's worth the money, your husband will realize that when you feel better, and can go to bed at night without worrying. Mine did, he even said he feels like he has his wife back. I think 50 dollars is a small price to pay. If they could only fix my sleep problem, it would be the only medicine I would use!
