I'm finding it hard to give up the coffee. What to do?
Funny thing is that I use to never drink coffee up until I started working at my current job. I think it all started with peer pressure. Actually that's not true. It was more of a social pressure. Holy Moly... 8 years ago!
It began with a cup of coffee, then it became 2 cups and then 3 cups of coffee. This was causing me the jitters, especially on an empty stomach. It also began with every other day, until it became 5 days a week and now I'm including the weekends. Patterns and habits; the good and the bad.
Now I need break up with my loving coffee who has gotten me through sleepless nights, through days when I needed that extra pick me up and fought the cold mornings to warm me up.
Do I go cold turkey like I did with soda? Or do I start off slow and give myself time to adjust to leaving it? Perhaps I could give myself a better substitution for my morning drinking crack? I could go decaffeinated, but not an option.
So, I just realized I did not intend for this post be all about coffee. This just goes to show you how completely psycho, I am over coffee.
