The World Without Caffiene.

  1. Life goes a little slower
  2. Leaves me with energy in the evening
  3. But not awake when I shouldn’t be
  4. I have an easier time listening to people.
  5. I have a harder time getting work done.
  6. I feel dumber
  7. I feel more normal
  8. I sleep more
  9. I worry less
  10. I write less
  11. I struggle to be creative
  12. I am not funny (some anonymous person already agrees with that)

Now, that is all after only 4 days.

I do believe that this is going to be a good thing . . . I just hope to retain that “edge” at some point.

For all of you who consume caffeine . . . I think you too should stop. (Of course I would say that . . . I don’t want to be doing things alone).

This Article gives good insight. I am not going to tell you what to do, but you might just save some money

  1. Mr Marshall Brain (the guy who wrote the article that you link to has a lot of interesting stuff… he also wrote “robot planet” which is fascinating… though it reveals he’s not a socialogist)
    I thought I’d be able to read anything you could throw at me an retain my caffeine loving habits guilt free through the use of fact-fudging and rose-colored goggles… but it didn’t work. Now I know the consequences of finishing the cold cup of jo that sitting in front of me.

  2. I just had a little more.. I can taste the bitter caffeine taste now.. I wonder the “I like the taste” thought is only because it’s manipulating my brain chemistry..

    Thanks for the comments lion.

    Just yesterday I was talking to someone who told me of a recent study that says it is healthy to drink 1-2 cups of coffee a day.

    Healthy as in “good for you.”

    One of the main arguments:
    you will be more alert

    Is that silly or what? One could use the that logic to justify a lot of narcotics.

    Anyway . . . I hope you are well.

  4. “Well”, of course is relative. My body is functioning as if I’m continually facing a low-level emergency… and I am in actuality facing just that. What will I do without coffee? (here comes justification for coffee) You know archeological and physiological evidence suggests that chewing cocoa leaves is what allowed people to survive in the harsh environment of the high Andes mountains… the low-level of cocaine in their blood was an important stimulant…. Oregon is a lot like the high Andes… right?

    I didn’t read the article you posted but just wanted to add my two cents. I have never.. EVER.. liked the tast of coffee.. no matter how you dress it up. But there was a time in my life when I drank Pepsi like people drink coffee..first thing in the morning and all day long. When I finally decided to quit I recall the worst headache of my life… for three days straight. And nothing helped it. Believe it or not I couldn’t even sleep! I used to call my then boyfriend (now husband) and keep him awake because I couldn’t sleep. Nowadays I don’t drink caffeine in any form and if I do I notice. I get a headache and jittery right away. It’s been over 17 years now that I choose not to drink that stuff and I do a decent job of keeping my kids off it. Now I will just tell you what I tell everyone else… That stuff’ll kill ya! 🙂
