Today marks Day 3 of my caffeine-free adventure. Days 1 and 2 were miserable. I had a bit of a headache towards the end of Day 1. That was it for a headache. I consider myself pretty lucky. The worst part of days 1 and 2 was how fatigued I was. All.day.long. Woke up tired, went to bed tired. I really could never wake up. Today, Day 3, I actually woke up refreshed. I didn’t need to press the snooze button, I didn’t crave coffee, and I didn’t wake up groggy. THIS is how it’s supposed to be. I was in Oklahoma this past week visiting my dad. On the drive there, I consumed 7 cups of coffee and an energy drink. I was a little apprehensive about the drive home. It went smashingly. Figuratively, not literally. A caffeine-free 7 hour road trip. Kind of a miracle. I felt awake the entire time, energy all day. None of that caffeine crash that you get in the middle of the day.
While I miss my beloved caffeine, I’m happy to be off the sauce. Thankful that my quitting caffeine cold turkey has gone so well. The first few days are the worst. Anticipating smooth sailing from now on.
