I think I’m addicted to coffee. Argh.
A few days ago, I went to see a great therapist who told me it was time for me to slow down on the toxins, particularly caffeine. And I’d been telling myself the same thing for awhile now.
When I drink too much coffee, I get anxious and stressed. Plus, it makes me hungry. And it’s not good for your teeth. And it dehydrates you. Etc., etc.
BUT there’s nothing I love more in the world than waking up to the smell of coffee, listening to it brew while I make my toast, taking my first sip, and walking around my apartment or the studio with my mug all morning. I drink it black — no sugar, no milk. I think if I didn’t have coffee, I’d just stay in bed looking hagard and depressed. But I don’t know, actually, I’ve never really tried.
I thought about switching to tea, but I thought I could maybe start with drinking decaf for awhile, to make the transition easier.
But it sounds like decaf is even worse for your health than regular coffee.
What about you? Do you know anything about this? Have you ever tried to go off coffee?
