Tolerance to what?: I must assume that you mean the effects of caffeine on your heart. By abstaining from coffee or tea or any other food that contains caffeine, the effects should definitely be gone in a week. That should also apply to any stomach or urinary problem or sleeplessness effect of the caffeine.

Caffeine : The caffeine should be out of your system in 1 week but you may experience headache or increased headache due to the caffeine withdrawal the tolerance you may have aquired maw take longer to disappear
