Monday as I was finishing my cup of coffee and popping my 2nd can of Diet Coke I began to think. Woah..wait a minute here...why am I drinking so much caffeine. Since I work in an office all day it is pretty common to keep something at hand to sip on and lately it has been all things caffeinated: Diet Coke, Coffee and Tea.
Yesterday I decided to "cut back" and see what happened so I brought in a large glass to fill with water to keep at my desk and everything went pretty well. I was a bit more tired than usual. Today...BAM...like I slammed my head into a brick wall. I have a massive headache.
I can't help but think I did this to myself and now I should pay the consequences. I am addicted to caffeine!
I don't think I will try to cut it out completely as this was just kind of an experiment to see if I was really needing the caffeine or drinking it just because. So what do you think? Is caffeine a harmful addictive drug or just something to wake you up in the morning and keep you going through the day?
