No coffee for me thanks. : (
I quit drinking coffee about three weeks ago and I find that I don't miss it. Nope, just kidding, that's a pile of bull bleep, man oh man would I ever enjoy a cup right now! I was never a big coffee drinker, I actually only started drinking coffee regularly about fifteen years ago, with breakfast. It was during the hour earlier spring time change, I couldn't snap out of feeling sleepy at work. My friend and coworker suggested I try a cup of coffee, "HELLO" it worked great! After that I started having a cup of coffee in the morning before work. Mostly just the instant stuff which is supposed to be milder on the system. Sometimes I would enjoy a "real" coffee from a coffee shop.
When I started working where I am now, I was told the coffee was free and so I would sometimes enjoy a cup with lunch or one in the afternoon if I felt sleepy. That changed this year, I don't know if it's because I'm getting older or I have developed some type of intolerance towards it but coffee makes me feel crazy. I feel terrible after having a cup, I feel hyper, I feel anxious like something bad is about to happen, my hands shake, I sweat like I ran upstairs and some days I feel dizzy. I decided no more.
I guess that I shouldn't be surprised by the addiction to it because it is a type of drug. I certainly miss it and in the morning I am constantly thinking about how much I would love a cup. I have tried having tea instead but that's just a cup of disappointment, there's nothing wrong with tea, I like it as well but when you are wanting a cup of coffee, it just won't do. I read that growing coffee is bad for the environment, so I guess I'm saving the planet, at least there's that. Steve want coffee. : (
