UPDATE: Day 5 of no coffee (well, sort of)

I’m attempting to stop the consumption of caffeine, and it’s going just a medium level of OK.  The first two days were tough and I felt a little like this guy below.

It wasn’t pretty.  I didn’t have a headache, but felt like a zombie and experienced major brain fog which can be described as “feeling spacy, confused, forgetful, lost, tired, along with difficulty thinking, concentrating, focussing, and completing tasks“.  Seriously, I drove myself crazy trying to remember the name of my high school French teacher who terrorized me – she’s the kind of person you just don’t forget.  After frantically calling my brother I was reminder her name…it’s Mmme. Blanchon in case you were wondering.  Needless to say, the physical and mental symptoms are real and unpleasant.

By Sunday morning, day 3, when El Branno went to get himself a coffee I begged for one myself.  I only drank about half but felt like a colossal failure.  My classmate Emily, who recently gave up the bean herself had these encouraging words via the master himself Gandhi:

“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”

Okay, so I’m back on the road to recovery and so far it’s okay.  Lesson to be learned here is a little slip up doesn’t mean we are starting back at square one.
