I would estimate that you should be feeling better each day. Baby steps, ya know? Good for you for taking this step towards better health!

Headaches, from 3-7 days. For sugar, if you keep plenty of fruit on hand and make yourself eat it when you are craving something sweet, then 3-5 days until your brain starts thinking of fruit for snacks rather than sweets.
I've felt better after 3 days totally off sugar, but I always start up again, not being interested in ditching it entirely. I love sugar. I'm also back on caffeine right now, but it seems to help me when I drag from allergy loads.

I actually wean myself from caffeine. If I feel a headache starting, I drink a little at a time until it stops. After 3 days or so I am done and don't crave it or get headaches. Good luck!

I don't know, I'm still having a hard time with not drinking coffee. I had a tooth go bad, and couldn't drink it until after the root canal, started back drinking it, then stopped again for pregnancy. I've been off for a couple weeks now and I'm still craving it like crazy. I want a cup of coffee, dang it!

I go pretty hard on the coffee in general myself - but I do try to give myself a week or so off from time to time. I can't go cold turkey anymore doing this - most often I'll drink green tea the first few days and then I can let it go and I find that helps the worst of the headaches (plus extra epsom salt baths - seems to help achiness, maybe helps detox? I like to think so anyway).
Good luck with your detox OP - hope it helps you feel better! There are some herbal chai's out there that will really mimic a good, flavored, milky-sweet coffee experience (so you can enjoy something similar to coffee without the caffeine, should you desire). Sometimes nice spicy, stronger herbal teas (with cinnamon, esp.) are coffee-absence satisfying for me as well.
