I Caved.

Yep, disapointed to say that I caved and had a coffee.  And of course I have a darn good reason but that doesn't change the fact that I *needed* a coffee, had one, was a lot better afterwards but could do with another...

I woke with a headache, knew it wouldn't go away by itself but went out and spent the morning outside anyway.  It continued to get worse.  I don't do headache tablets, try not to take anything unless I really need to.  I knew the headache was because I haven't had coffee for a couple of days and to be honest I'm surprised it took so long...Sometimes I can get rid of it with a sleep but tried laying down and it's not going to happen.  So I had a coffee, the pounding head is no more, now there is just a constant dull ache...and that will go away when/if I have another coffee.

I came in and *confessed* just before 12.  Since then I've tried having something to eat, vegies and egg...but that hasn't helped.  Tried a lemon tea, nope.
Daughter is here now, says she can hear me moaning from the other side of he room and I should just have it.

She says she just heard me again and if I didn't make it she would...OK, I already caved once, once more won't make any difference...Sorry!!


  1. Good on you for giving it a go. Sugar/Caffeine withdrawal headaches aren't much fun at all, and headache tablets don't seem to help anyway. Perhaps you could barter some of your own produce for a few extra things that you don't grow there, that way you're still being self sufficient. Good luck with it.

  2. Don't be so hard on yourself. You gave it a go and really if it was only coffee, that's not so bad!

  3. You did well. Don't consider it caving. Consider it a lesson learned. You have a "need." If you want to break the dependence, you can. If not, just keep drinking it. I would not blame you if you continued to drink coffee. Coffee drinkers actually have a lower risk of some types of cancers. I could not drink coffee if someone paid me.
