I miss coffee!

Thursday, October 01, 2015

I gave up coffee over the summer. In June, I cut back to decaf, and then just stopped all together. No coffee as of July 1st!

Ok, I did have the random cup, maybe 3 times since then, but I didn't enjoy it and didn't finish it. So I thought the love affair was over.

But now it's getting colder out. Especially with today being so rainy, I really miss my nice warm soothing cup o' joe!

I may try tea, but I don't enjoy it as much. And I really don't like herbal teas. I wish I did, but there's a taste in there that I just can't get past. And I've tried a lot of them.

Of course there is always cocoa!

    I love the smell of coffee but absolutely hate the taste so that's one addiction I've never had to give up. I drink a green/white blend of tea that I find very refreshing but I never drink it hot/warm only cold. That's how I was raised. I've been trying to cut back this year on the amount of tea I consume by switching to just plain water. Tea is now just for an occasional treat. It's all good.

    I also have been thinking of giving up coffee only because I feel that I have been drinking way to much of it these past couple of weeks - it is already 4:00pm and I have had 3 reg cups and one decaf - UGH not sure why I am drinking so much of it but I think I might have to find a substitute. I do like herbal tea - Good luck on your quest to find the perfect replacement for a warm cup of "Joe"

    If you had tried a cup of herbal tea each time you told me you don't like it, you'd be quite fond of it by now!

    Have you tried any of the substitutes? Yannoh is quite nice - and I believe there is Tchinno (or something like that) available in US which is very good? I've given up caffeine a few times - and it sneaks back again! Well done you!

    Thankfully I never liked coffee so I didn't have to worry about stopping it. Addictive behavior I don't have lol
