Day One of Nothing Valuable to Contribute

Today chewed me up and spit me out like a stale cracker and all I want to do is stare at the wall like I'm in a catatonic state. You could throw a tv in front of me if it makes you feel better, but it doesn't really matter.
Why the melancholy, you ask? Or maybe you didn't, but I don't care. It's my party and I'll whine if I want to.
I'm giving up caffeine. Yep. I said it.
Caffeine and I have a longstanding love affair. I really do love it. I don't care if it has a bad hair day, puts on a few pounds or has spinach in it's teeth. I love it all the same, however it has come to my attention that caffeine does not love me.
It's not good for fertility. It's not good for anxiety. It's not good for any number of things. So, I'm giving it up.

It sucks and I'm tired.


  1. I'm so sorry you had a hard day! I gave up soda over the i have been where you are. It was my only caffeine and I was drinking way too much. I feel so much better now than I did before. I weaned myself off little by little....started drinking 1/2 a soda for a few days, then a 1/4 for a week and then only a little and then none. I didn't suffer any headaches luckily. Hang in there, it does get better! Hoping tomorrow brings a really good day :)

  2. Uhg. I feel the same exact way. I've already loaded myself up on the stuff though and it's not helping.
    I think it has to do with already seeing a Christmas commercial.
    Good luck on quitting! I'm rooting for you!

  3. Thanks you guys. I drink half-caf at home, but I drink a lot of it. I've also been known to get a 24 oz coffee at Dunkin Donuts and then follow that up with multiple cups throughout the day paired with a diet soda or two. So, now m down to a travel mug of half-caf and caffeine free the rest of the day. We'll see how it goes. :)
    Glad you were able to do it, Amy.
    I'll be sure to let you know how miserable I get, Nell. :)

  4. First, I think you should win an award based on the title alone. Hilarious.
    Second, I have the same love affair with coffee and I think I'm going to have to break up with it too. Over the last several days, I had a recurrence of serious anxiety that I thought I kicked to the curb last year. So, this morning, I went half-caf on my Americano. It's a start.
    Also, I don't feel as breathless and frazzled as yesterday.
    Hopefully, this works for you too.

  5. Ha! Thank you! Good luck to you too! It's killing me.
