I Never Thought I'd Say This But...

Y'all. Y'all. This is serious. You might want to sit down for this. This is the kind of news that I never thought I'd be delivering.

You ready? Okay so, it hurts me deeply to say that I had to break up... with coffee.

I KNOW! I KNOW!! I said I would never give up my rich, black love. That love that got me going every morning, that love that kept me going throughout my days. But I was addicted and it was no good for me. I had to give it up!

 This is how my husband would keep my Cafe Bustelo supply. He was not having me uncaffeinated.

Okay, that's not entirely true. Yes, as of today I haven't had coffee in 30 days, since my birthday. But, because I'm only semi-masochistic, my intention isn't to quit coffee completely. I still like coffee and I want to be able to have a cup if the need is there. But I was sick of being so stuck on it that if I didn't have coffee for a day I got a migraine and a bad attitude. That's not winning.

So I've been drinking copious amounts of tea to manage, then less and less, and now I'm kind of sick of tea. But that's tomorrow's problem. Today I'm no longer a caffeine junkie and that's cool as shit, dontcha think?
