Well now... quit coffee again yesterday, and got a full-on headache. I had quit for 8 months, then with the start of this new cd project, this bad habit crept back in. But I've really felt quite awful in comparison to when I didn't drink it, so it was time to bid it adieu once again.
The ways in which it makes me feel awful: drum roll into tmi...my boobs get lumpy and sore, for one.
Another is how dopey I feel upon waking...until I get some coffee in me...now, if that's not a drug, I don't know what is.
Also, my fatigue later in the day was a direct result of how much coffee I had in the morning...if 2 cups made me 'wake up' in the morning, I was twice as tired in the afternoon. Who needs an energy zapper like that??
I would aim for one cup in the morning, but usually, another cup would creep in before dinner...again, with this wacky recording schedule, it was a welcome jolt...but it crept in more and more until I felt like a$$, basically more or less all the time.
My dependence on it, combined with this crappy, energy-zapped feeling made the decision to quit again a no-brainer.
So thar ya go. A step in the right direction!!
