I'm giving up coffee. Again.

I did this at the New Year. It went pretty well. However, I am weak. Here we are a mere 7 months later and I am back in the Tim Horton's drive-thru once a day. Once a day! A little excessive, no?!

And how pathetic is this: Not particularly enjoying the coffee taste, I drink my coffee triple triple. Triple triple! In anticipation of my new coffee strike, I have been drinking decaf. "Yes, I'd like a medium triple triple decaf, please." I mean, what's the point?! Just give me a cup of sugar milk slurry and warm it up a bit. It would probably do the trick.

So here I am at the beginning of Day Two. I'm sure this headache is a figment of my imagination. After all, when you stop drinking decaffeinated coffee, you don't get headaches. It could be the humidity. It could be the lack of three heaping teaspoons of sugar.

I've come up with a counter measure. And oh, my goodness. I wish I had discovered it sooner. I don't even mind giving up coffee now.

Here we have an English Toffee tea. How they get plant leaves to taste like that is one of the mysteries of the universe. Even without honey it is sweet. And biscotti. Why have I never had biscotti before? This particular biscotti is full of almonds and dipped in dark chocolate. I don't even like dark chocolate. For some reason, almond biscotti dipped in dark chocolate dunked in English Toffee tea is better than a medium triple triple decaf.

Who knew?

How can you give up coffee? It's the only thing that keeps my migraines at bay. I once gave it up for a month and had about 3 or 4 headaches a week before I gave up.
Until the sleep deprivation ends, pass me another cuppa joe.

Peace and Laughter,
