Caffeine: Ultimate Love/hate
Anyone who knows me knows I love my coffee – plunger, espresso, flat white, short macchiato, I’m there. Unfortunately, my love for caffeinated goodness often means my consumption goes up in direct proportion to my busyness levels, until I find myself drinking too much of the stuff.
Not being the sort of person that’s really capable of doing anything by halves (including coffee drinking), I combat this by going on caffeine fasts, where I’ll not drink anything caffeinated for a period of time (usually a week). As I sit here with a nearly-empty thermos of plunger coffee, I can’t help but think that it’s time for another one.
So as of midnight tonight, I’ll be completely off caffeine (in any form: tea, coffee, chocolate, energy drinks, whatever) for the entire week. Usually by day 3, my body goes into full-scale rebellion, and tries to make life miserable. Thankfully there aren’t any uni classes this week.
Wish me luck…
