There is one ingredient that is common in a Blogger/Writer/Columnist/Painter/High School Student/Procrastinator starter pack.
Between the late night work hours, cramming sessions and the sudden realisation of forgotten deadlines, I, tend to get tired. Besides rarely gulping down a can or two of energy drinks that taste like “cough syrup”, I like to drink something that is a bit more tasty, sophisticated and wonderfully clichéd at the same time. The star beverage of eternity, Coffee!
I never thought that I would be so strong to let go of my extreme addiction towards black coffee, but I did, eventually. So, this time I took it to the next level. I stopped drinking coffee for a month and replaced it with healthier options like herbal tea, green tea and healthy smoothies.
I logged my experience every day in a sentence or two for you sadists to enjoy! Go ahead, give it a read:
Super cranky, bad mood and a never ending massive headache!
The headache returns and my hatred for herbal “anything” grows!
The green tea isn’t helping, what is this supposed to do anyway?
I am cranky AF and I am forgetting everything, almost went back to drinking coffee, I regret this already…
My sleep cycle has literally changed to that of a civilized human being, I am waking up early, is it time I stop doing this?
Okay, the green tea isn’t as bad, I admit it, but a headache is back again and I am really constipated.
I am a little lost and I have forgotten what coffee tastes like but I got this awesome rose green tea and this is pure love!
I walked by my favourite coffee shop and I started behaving like a former alcoholic who has tasted the best wine in the world, thanks to Mum for motivating me to stay strong!!
Should I have like a cheat day or something? No? Okay!
I love the banana strawberry chocolate smoothie that I picked up from subway today…you know what else was on the menu? Buy 1 get 1 free on an American Latte!
I am feeling an ardent craving for coffee, I went to a writer’s conference and they were offering coffee and sparkling water, guess what I took? No, sparkling water!
I had an Oreo milkshake instead of coffee today, I am fine.
I am feeling a lot less stressed actually, but I still WANT TO DRINK COFFEE!
I had that rose green tea all day, tea is the new coffee…or is it?
My sleep cycle and concentration towards a specific work has increased quite a lot, trust me!
I am so effing calm! What happened to me?
I am a different person, I don’t recognize me anymore!
I am procrastinating a lot less and I am feeling really productive, something must be wrong.
I somehow don’t feel that craving for coffee anymore, should I be proud or sad?
I am not as tensed and anxious as before, I am feeling like a monk already.
Got some orange flavoured herbal tea today, the flavoured teas definitely taste better than flavoured coffees.
The crankiness and headache are completely gone, you can call me a new person!
I bought an energy drink and then returned it because it contains caffeine and coffee contains that too, I want to stay true to myself! *pats himself on the back*
I am definitely more composed than ever before, trust me when I say this; I got this compliment from six people in total today so it must be true…
I bought myself a tea maker; my coffee maker is having serious sibling rivalry issues!
There is something called a coffee flavoured tea! WTH? (FYI, I did not drink that!!)
I have successfully got two of my friends to take up the challenge, someone give me an award already!
I am feeling a lot better. A LOT!
I feel naturally sleepy, I don’t know if you get what I mean, but I just don’t have to force myself to sleep anymore.
I am never going back to coffee again, or am I?
