Coffee Withdrawl

image: the verve:already there by Flickr user visualpanic

Starting today, I’m making yet another attempt to rip coffee out of my life. For me, this isn’t an easy thing to do. I love coffee. I love coffee houses. I love Starbucks. I look forward to my morning cup in the evening and it’s the 1st thing I think about in the morning. And I only drink a 16oz cup a day – it’s not like I’m drinking 3 cups a day. Why am I doing this?

  • Coffee contributes to dragon breath
  • Coffee is turning my teeth yellow
  • Coffee is ripping up my stomach ** main motivator at this point **
  • I think coffee makes my eye twitch
  • I don’t like the headaches that come with missing my daily dose
  • Sometimes it feels like I’m working for coffee when it should be the other way around
  • To save money
  • To prove I can

So… wish me luck. I thought it might help to blog about this attempt. I promise to update this post if I fall off the wagon. Let’s see how many days I can go without the brown stuff. Wish me luck.

Update 12/22/06: I fell off the wagon today and had a 12oz cup of jo – 10 lashings.

Update 12/27/06: Fell off the wagon again on the 24th and 25th.

Update 01/05/07: Back on coffee off and on – at least I’m not drinking it everyday.
