Help! Caffeine is taking me over!!

Every morning I drink nearly a pot of coofee to myself. For a few years it just made me wired all day, but lately I have been feeling sick from it mid-day. I get overly tired around lunch time but beforehand the caffeine gets me so jittery I feel somewhat neauseus for hours-and them my "low" hits me. I am out of energy come 9 o'clock at night or so and crash often times without warning. I am not on any drugs, nor do I drink. Any suggestions of what I can do to help myself?

My problem is I rely on it to get me going in the morning. If I don't drink coffee at all, which I have done days I get up late, I feel sluggish all morning and can never quite see to fully wake up all day.

Caffeine is addictive, i dont drink it, try different exercises rather then drinking to stay fresh and active

I really can't though-I have a tight schedule and I have small children and can't leave early to go do anything (like a walk or the gym.) They are sleeping when I am working on my caffeine fix here at home in the morning.
