Strong coffee

Hello beauties!

These days, I find my life revolves around one thing (well, almost anyway.)


Can I get up in the morning without it? No. I can't even remotely function before I've had my first cup these days. Which is really strange since I completely cut it out of my daily diet for close to four years. Seriously. I used to drink like thirty plus cups per day and then one day, I just gave it up.

I switched to rooibos tea for who knows what reason and I stuck with it for the coffeeless years.

Then, one day, I just had a cup of coffee again.

I'm a mind changer. (:

Strange how quickly an addiction can take hold again. I'm back to around fifteen cups per day! I remember during my matric exams (last year of high school for all those of you in other countries ;P), coffee was what kept me going.

Here is something cool for you.

  1. Caffeine may have some physical health benefits, but we need to be more aware that it causes/exacerbates anxiety and other mental health conditions.
    Just read the 170+ pages of comments of people trying to get off caffeine here; http://coffeefaq.com/site/node/11
    And the research referenced here; http://caffeineevaluation.blogspot.co.uk/

    Many people feel they cannot 'get going' in the morning without caffeine; in reality they are just experiencing withdrawal from not having ingested any over the previous hours.
    A key point is the research showing anxiety sufferers can be very sensitive to caffeine; some people think 'it can't be the caffeine, I only have 1 cup a day', but for them that could be the key issue in their anxiety.
    Withdrawal is not easy (especially first 2 weeks, when anxiety actually goes up), but is possible.

    How about cutting all caffeine for 30 days and seeing how you feel?
