Caffeine Deprivation Day 3

I woke up wanting to go back to sleep.

But that’s not unusual.  I’m a sleep fiend.  9 hours is my norm.

What is unusual is that I didn’t drink tea to get myself out of the sleepy state.

No headaches today, and was reasonably alert until about 1/2 hour ago when a heavy-eyed feeling kicked in.  Instead, it’s cravings.  By lunchtime, mint wasn’t having the same satisfactory effect.  Dunking a biscuit isn’t the same.  Honey oat variety and mint?!  Whatever you do, don’t try it.   I WANT tea – strong, red with a dash of milk.

Oh well, there is slight improvement on yesterday, so I am beginning to see the possibilities in non-caffeinated tea variations.

  1. I once gave up coffee for a year, to prove I could (at my peak, I was drinking 2 full pots [roughly 24 cups] a day!). when I restarted, I almost immediately returned to addiction level. Now it causes so much havoc on my GI tract that I limit myself to a cup a day, at most… though I sometimes “cheat” with espresso vodka (which causes just as much GI distress but, thanks to the vodka, I care less).

    I hope you have continued success. Caffeine is a hard habit to kick!

    1. It is, isn’t it? Not mine though – but one I’d have if I wasn’t going to live on a bike. Getting past the tiredness now. Really wanting to get over the addiction and have my system regulate itself rather than have to have a caffeine punch to start my day.
