It’s been 7 days since I have had any coffee. I realized since my post Terrible Tuesday, that I have a strong addiction to coffee, well actually to all caffeine. So when I ran out of it last Saturday, I have refused to buy any more. I have also cut down on my soda intake, hoping to gradually fade that out as I use up the 18 cans I have left at home/work. To not throw myself/my body into complete caffeine withdrawal/shock, I have had one cup of green tea each morning. It has helped me to not have the severe headaches, jitters, and anxiety, and to not be as much of a b*!ch to those around me. If anyone has struggled with caffeine addiction or weaning themselves off of it, I would love to hear any advice or thoughts you have about it.
