Kicking Coffee to the Curb

by Cyndi Paxton Johnson

I did it.

I kicked coffee to the curb - cold turkey! It's been 10 days now - and this is the first day I've gotten through without a nap. I'd also like to apologize to anyone I've spoken with in the past 10 days - and could you possibly email me what we talked about??? 

This was a spur of the moment decision - no debating, no researching relevant facts. The only thing that entered into the decision was my wonky heartbeat - and the pulse that REFUSED to go below 100 - when I was resting. I have to tell you - going from eight espressos a day to nothing is a jolt to the system - so if you caught me licking the side of your coffee cup, please forgive me! (if you didn't catch me - ignore this message!)  [ALSO...reports of me licking the wallpaper at Coffee Kat are widely exaggerated!]

I'm happy to say my heartbeat has returned to normal - and the pulse rate has dropped into the non-alarming range.  I can also finally focus again - and can write at least three sentences without losing track of what I was doing!

Best of all - to all my coffee-loving friends out there - I PROMISE to leave you alone and let you enjoy your java without me harping in your ear about the dangers of caffeine and the benefits of quitting! (cause if you'd done that to me two weeks ago I might have decked you!) {grin}

Have a great week!
