Okay, yes ditch the coffee, very good idea. Drink perhaps green tea (which I think you mentioned). Or at the very least just have one small cup of normal coffee/day. Coffee has other chemicals in it besides the caffine which stimulate you.

Anyway back to your orginal question. Hmmm.. Do you procrastinate alot? Let me refer you to these podcasts:

They're very good and I believe you're some kind of pysch grad student?? Anyway you'll find them espically interesting I think. Anyway in the podcasts he talks about 'senstation seekers' who kinda need the anxiety/adrenaline thing to get stuff done, anyway I'm not good with these things ( do geology!), just have a listen. And he also touches on depression and procrastination, something close to my heart! Or you can get the paper he refers to in the podcasts (I have a copy if you can't access the journal at your uni, although I'm assuming you can!)

Kind regards
