I have been relying on coffee more and more lately (again) despite having gone completely cold turkey this year during Lent. The reason I go back to it is that not being caffeinated every day means that when I do drink coffee, it’s nuts. I feel 1000% motivation for whatever I’m doing. I enjoy it, but I know it’s not real – it’s just tapping my adrenal glands for a boost, something that is not repeatable.
I also don’t enjoy the headaches that come from it. I will probably continue to not make coffee a daily choice, but will continue to enjoy it sparingly here and there.
