Day One of Caffeine free.. From averaging 16 mugs of coffee + chocolate and tea to Zero per day (approx 15 times the recommended maximum).. Caffeine withdrawal is a bitch!! This hurts!
Had mad headaches all day along with palpitations and nausea.. Here’s hoping tomorrow is better!!
Only 28 days to go!!
To recap for those who don’t know, I am a serious Caffeine addict, I have regularly been consuming ~16 mugs of coffee/day, plus chocolate, coffee beans and tea, since I was about 15 years old.
As part of my mid-life crisis, I am undertaking a number of challenges every other month for as long as it interests me. Back in October 2014 I went totally meat-free, no meat, no fish (dairy was allowed though). This proved a fascinating journey, none of that “fake-meat” crap was used (the like of Linda McCartney and Quorn etc – bleurgh!), everything was freshly made – even my takeaways as I am lucky enough to have the most impressive Bib-Gourmand Vegetarian Indian restaurant within 3 minutes walk of my house. 😀
I am quite fortunate that I gave up fizzy soda drinks and especially Coca-Cola and Pepsi years ago anyway.
