woo!
Decided to begin the process of weening myself from my coffee master again last week.
I had done it before - when Deena was pregnant and was adhering to a strict ‘no alcohol no caffeine’ lifestyle, I thought it would only be fair to do the same. Stopped beer and coffee cold turkey, thinking that I’d be wanting a beer in an hour or so afterwards. Surprisingly, beer was no problem to give up. (Though DAMN it was good after 9 months.) Coffee, however, was torture. The headache began almost the same day, which I expected, since I had a little bit of a habit. What I didn’t expect was it lasting 4 days. I fell asleep with it. I woke up with it.

I wanted to die.

So after that went away, I thought staying off coffee would be a good idea. 9 months later, I had a small cup, and that was that. Back on the wagon. Coffee laughed from afar.

This time, I thought I’d try and trick coffee with a daily weening. I went from a cup in the morning, a refill at lunch, and an optional 3rd refill on my way home to a small cup of plain house coffee by last Friday. This weekend, I had *half a cup* in the middle of the day on Saturday, and I had none whatsoever on Sunday.

But coffee wouldn’t be fooled. I woke up yesterday with a raging headache, knowing full well that the only cure was to succumb to my coffee master.

I need an intervention.

i cut out coffee once. i cheated by taking excedrin, though. it has caffeine in it, and also does wonders for headaches. you might want to consider using that as a crutch on the bad days.

We were out of coffee this morning so I took an Excedrin to prevent a potential headache.

Like most addictions it's half habitual. You should switch to tea and then start alternating between real tea and herbal. I say drink decaf, but I think it's pointless.

I should probably cut out caffeine too, but I'm totally lacking motivation.

No way should you give up coffee. Coffee is our friend, and without your business the Colombians would have to rely solely on the cocaine industry. So....

EVERY TIME YOU HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE, YOU KEEP A CHILD OFF DRUGS.

Think of the children, you selfish bastard. Have a cup of joe.
