Caffeine Detox Flopperoo

Sunday, December 01, 2013

I gave it up for four days straight.
Had no headaches, felt so great.
Sorry to say, it's over now;
I drank some coffee and wow-oh-wow!
Didn't like the taste at all,
So I'm wondering what makes me fall
Off this wagon, when I try.
I won't give up, I'll succeed or die. (trying that is)

    I feel the same with sweet drinks now, when I taste it, one is enough, I used to love diet coke. Water is my drink now, boring I know but enjoy it more

    Thank you for your kind words, I appreciate you reading my blog

    The thought of it was better than it turned out to be. You'll do it.

    Did you get a migrane with that cup? Or did it just taste yucky? I would remember the taste whenever you feel you gotta have some. emoticon

    Yep, coffee actually tastes terrible in my opinion as well. Please give this up. You must move on. If you want something hot to drink try decaffeinated tea. Get the coffee out of the house forever. I don't have any here.

    Just get back on that wagon.
    You can do it. What helped me soothe my desire for a cuppa, was drinking hazelnut teeccino, an herbal coffee-like drink.

    WooHoo - a Blog in rhyme - maybe we should have a Blog in rhyme challenge on Writers??

    As for why coffee - I think there's a "body" habit that's hard to give up. Even tea doesn't "feel" as good as coffee whether you like the taste or not.

    Everyone slips on a banana peel - I am so sorry but perhaps we can do this together as I can see this coming for me too !! I am going to wean myself off of caffeine as I will be making many changes this week to my nutrition ! All Aboard the caffeine train is now Boarding !! :)

    okay, so on the next attempt, you'll try to do it longer than this time. Fall down 3 times get 4 times.

    Gotta say -- I'm not at all motivated to give up caffeine ("my only remaining sin") and am reinforced in this by the research that indicates it's (in moderation, of course) good for us. Not trying to be subversive here . . . not at all . . . if you have strong reasons for going coffee free then of course I applaud and support that. But I've only got so much will power and try not to exhaust it on stuff that may not help in the long run with my main goals.

    Well, just get back on that bandwagon like you do when you eat too much or have a meal you regret. Its not too late. Its only too late when you stop trying.

    I love your wit BTW.

    As to why? It's a known element of your old self. We want to change, we go through the acts of changing, we do change. But then we get cold feet because we are fearful of what this new self is all about. So we run back to the old behavior.

    Yep, it all boils down to fear.
    Now you have the guilt.

    And, you are still your wonderful, loveable, fantastic self.
