I know quitting caffeine isn’t solely to blame, and the way I’m feeling must be a result of other things, like my diet of white flour and sugar this weekend… but I also think if I had my cup of coffee in the morning, I may be able to mask the exhaustion.
I have to wonder if my body has become truly dependent on coffee in some way, so that now it isn’t able to function properly without it.
One thing is certain; I plan on sticking this out. I suspect my energy and concentration will return 10-fold after some good sleep, a regular exercise routine, and dedication to eating healthy every day.
Sorry if I sound like one of those sickly complainer types; I’ve never thought complaining about feeling sick did anything but make a person keep on being sick! But I think it is very important to document the transition from drinking several cups of coffee every day for years, to drinking only a cup of green tea each day.
