(What, this poll is still up? :-)
My caffeine intake has fluctuated wildly in the past
month or so. By late September, I was drinking probably
six cups of coffee (the stronger the better) and six or
eight cans of Coke a day. (This is explained by the fact
that my company gives us free pop, and the coffee machine
is five metres or so from my office.)
I figured that was a bit much, so I quit caffeine cold
turkey, especially after hearing people who had stopped
drinking caffeine gush about how much more energy they had.
That went on for most of October. (And while I was grouchy
for the first few days, I was not nearly as miserable as
people had told me I would be.)
This weekend, I took a look back at four weeks or so
without caffeine, and decided that I was happier with our
favourite stimulant. I did not have gobs and gobs of
excess energy. I was not finding it any easier to get up
in the morning, or go to sleep at night. And I genuinely
enjoy the taste of good coffee (no, decaffeinated just is
not the same). So, I have started drinking coffee
again. (I think I can do without the Coke, thanks. I do
not miss it.)
