Three Days

Three days without coffee and I damn near told my boss to get his head out of his ass and dump the double standard or I would tell everyone how badly he fucked up at the conference and what a fucking nightmare he has made of everything since. The only reason shit hasn't completely hit the fan is because I am so damn good.

There but for the grace of God...

Certainly isn't for the grace of coffee. God I could use a pot or three. At least the headaches have decreased in severity today but I feel like I am being stretched on a very slow rack.

Why are you quitting coffee completely rather than cutting back? Just curious -

Chuckles, you're not going Mormon on us are you?

Chuckles said...

Mormon? Hell no.

I am quitting coffee because I have been having trouble sleeping. I miss it soo much. Both decent sleep and coffee. Until Tuesday, I had been drinking steadily more and more coffee each day and was not enjoying life.

WTF, no coffee? You are insane. I <3 coffee.

I love coffee as well especially Mayorga's Dulce de Leche brew, but I love a good night's sleep as well. I have had two decent nights of sleep so far this week and I feel pretty good.

The headaches are mostly gone as well.

I do this all the time. Mostly because I love to piss my body off.

"What? You're chemically dependent on caffeine, body? Fuck you! No caffeine for 2 weeks."

Then I finally get over the lack of caffeine but get sick of feeling tired all the time (even when I slept like 8-9 hours) so then I start drinking it again. It's a fun cycle.

SSSShhhhhh! You're giving away my secrets, dEn.

Just get some Ambien for the sleeping!!

I am in the same boat Chuckles. No coffee since Tuesday. Of course, I have been drinking about 8 cups of green tea a day, or I couldn't function.

What I really miss is the physical sensation of drinking coffee, the smell, the warmth, the routine. It's why habits are hard to break, I suppose!

Ambien is for pill poppers. You must be a pill popper, AG, pushing pathetic pills.

I bet you just love all the free valium over in the Republic of Drugs.

Doesn't green tea have a whole lot of caffeine, Kathleen? I am drinking uncaffeinated lemongrass tea.


And now look like a damn patchouli scented hippie dipshit.

I thought you were going to avoid posts about work and work people. You never know who might read your posts and make some phone calls.

Chuckles said...

Yeah, that didn't stick.

green tea definitely has the caffeine, though much less than coffee. I just try to pretned it has other health benefits.
