Still No Coffee
Day 5 of no coffee and I haven't suffered any withdrawals. The only thing I've noticed is that I'm really hungry, it's like those extra calories from a coffee topped my belly up. I also found that I started looking through the pantry yesterday for something to eat (boredom eating) whereas normally I would make myself a cuppa. Tea just doesn't fill that hole in my tummy. I'm actually quite surprised at how easy it has been to give up but I think I like the process of having a cuppa; it's the fact that I sit down and read the paper, Facebook, catch up with friends or simply sit on the veranda and watch the world go by. I'm not one to have a cuppa sitting on the bench, taking the occasional sip while I rush around getting the kids ready for school or have one in the car on the way to work (that's my green tea). I associate coffee with downtime which I'm sure most people do. In saying that though, I do the same with a cup of tea. It will be interesting to see how the rest of this month pans out.
