It seemed like a good idea, yesterday.
I’ve decided to go the next 30-days (until October 3rd) without coffee.
Here are the rules that I am following:
- I will not make coffee in the morning and after lunch like I usually do.
- No caffeinated teas allowed! This is primarily about coffee, but caffeine, too.
- If I am invited to have coffee with a friend or friends come to the house for a cup of coffee, I am allowed to have a cup, too.
Why would I torture myself like this? Nothing very compelling, really. I just think it’s good for my health and loosens my addiction to coffee.
Here’s an interesting look at how our brains react to coffee:
I have read and experienced the effects of going cold turkey on caffeine. The first few days will be rough (like today!), but by the time I hit a full week, I should be feeling a whole lot better.
