It was tougher than the 1st week. Just the act of removing coffee from my daily rituals set my mind on the edge and gave me a headache for 2 days running.
After that it went away. And I could function again. During the week, I drank lots of green tea and just water.
They weren’t as satisfying as strong, thick, black coffee. The kind that’s as bitter as regrets.
Yet without it, I feel clearer, more in control, still snappy, but less filled with dread.
Perhaps this is a good thing. I’ll carry on my no-coffee deprivation into the next week. And perhaps it’s time to declutter the mind too.
