Over a week ago, I had stopped drinking any caffeinated beverages. I’ve done this before and always ended up back on caffeine. I don’t care what people say this stuff is a drug. With withdrawal symptoms when one stopped taking it. From the shakes, too massively painful headaches. And it lasts for three days.
Sadly chances are I will end up returning to caffeinated beverages. The odds aren’t exactly my favor. Makes me wonder as it is often it is said, marijuana is a gateway drug to other heavier drugs. I wonder if anybody thought about caffeine being the real gateway drug. I mean if you think about, it almost everybody who ever used marijuana has drank caffeine drinks. I think I would even be willing to wager that long before people smoke cigarettes or drink beer, they were drinking caffeinated beverages.
Anyways, I’m going off on a tangent. Being without caffeine is quite liberating and refreshing. One of the things I noticed every time I had caffeine in my system, I actually got better sleep. And I was able to stay awake longer. Although caffeine might help give me a jolt my body seems to become reliant on it.
Also, I don’t have as many headaches. Usually I got headaches here and there as I just didn’t drinking enough caffeine. There once was a time where I used to drink to 2 liters of Coke. It’s pretty messed up how reliant my body becomes to this substance.
It may have even been responsible to a degree for a past kidney stone I had passed. Which you would think I would learned a lesson, after going through that horrible pain. But ultimately my need for caffeine ends up drawing me back in. I wouldn’t be surprised if I completely stopped drinking caffeine, let alone any sugary beverages I probably would lose a great deal of weight. Heck, I seemed to have less of an appetite when I’m free of caffeine.
Unfortunately, I never get to really see any weight loss because, it doesn’t take me long to get hooked back on the caffeine. It’s really sad, and I wish I didn’t have this vice. Maybe the good Lord would give me some strength along with my own willpower to overcome this caffeine addiction.
Anyways, wish me luck I suppose.
