Caffeine Detox - Part IV
My nine month caffeine detox experiment has finally come to an end. After watching on the "The Secret Life of Coffee" on the Food Network and reading Frum Philly Farmgirl's posting on coffee, I realized that I could not stop drinking coffee for the rest of my life. My self-control was tested every time I smelled its rich aroma wafting out at me as I passed by coffee shops.
On Sunday morning, I went to the kosher Krispy Kreme near my home and drank a large cup of coffee. Needless to say, it was fantastic! I got such a buzz off it that I felt a tremendous surge of energy. I came home played with my kids outside and all the kids in the neighborhood. Twelve hours later, I still felt that my energy level had not dissipated, and after laying down in bed I could not fall asleep for an hour.
So, here it is, the last posting in the "Caffeine Detox" series. While I do not envision returning to drinking coffee or sodas on a daily basis, I will now enjoy an occasional cup of coffee.
