☕ Still no caffeine, a follow-up.

I up and stopped drinking caffeine cold turkey on January 15th. It was not so much out of health concerns but more to see if I could do it. As mentioned, I have been upping my caffeine consumption into astronomical proportions and needed to reel it back in.

It has now been over a month, and while I miss the taste of a good cup of coffee and various energy drinks, I no longer depend on any of them.

My sleep seems to have stabilized back to “normal” or as normal as I know it to be. I have noticed that I have a lot more energy at the start of the day than before; it was a mental thing where I always thought that I needed coffee, etc, to start the day, which is no longer the case.

I am not sure how long I will continue this path, but it was good to know that I was able to just up and stop without feeling like a junkie needing my next fix.
