Coffee Addiction

I'm addicted to coffee. I wake up every morning and the first thing I do is make coffee...before I wash my face or brush my teeth. I can do it half-awake without even my contacts on.

I've read a lot of articles lately about how coffee is good for moderation. It's the "in moderation" part that kills me. Or maybe it's the lack of moderation on my part that will end up killing me.

Either way, I need to cut back to one cup a day. I'll make exceptions for special occasions, but there's no reason to drink 4 cups while I'm hanging out in the office.

I quit coffee cold turkey before getting pregnant with my first child.  Didn't touch it until after her 6th month mark.  Then when I found out I was pregnant again, I started to slack off once more....not quite cold turkey.  Then I found out that I was going to have to do chemo while pregnant.  I figured my little addiction to coffee wasn't nearly so bad.

Enjoy life, enjoy your coffee.....after all, swampcritter is can you be addicted to something so delicious as coffee?????

I heart coffee, do both my babies.  :)

When I was young we lived in Ethiopia and they have incredible incredible coffee. Just the aroma of that coffee is intoxicating. We would get together with our family and friends and spend a couple of hours drinking coffee. Given how potent the coffee is I'm surprised anyone ever slept.
Reading your journal made me nostalgic.

Coffee is native to Ethiopia...the legend is that a boy was looking for his herd of goats. He found them eating a red berry of a branch and dancing. Curious, the boy tried eating some of the berries himself, then he, too, started to dance.

Swampy even loves decaf.
