Hello, my name is Vanessa and I am addicted to coffee.
I would drink about 3-4 cups of coffee a day. One day I decided not to drink any and I got severe headaches, chills, and other withdrawal symptoms. After that I decided to quit cold turkey.
Its a year later without a single drop of coffee! BUT my problem is that I need a pick me up! Working full time now has be so tired. I've tried tea and matcha and that worked for a little while, but nothing like coffee.
Should I get back on coffee in moderation? Or does anyone have any coffee alternatives? Let me know!
@vanessa @danielle agreed! while I am not a coffee drinker myself (I do a huge cup of black tea first thing in the morning) I love the idea of enjoying in moderation versus telling myself a hard "no" on something I really enjoy. Also not sure if you are specifically looking for a caffeinated beverage, but in terms of food, how about a hunk of dark chocolate? It's high in antioxidants AND can give you a little pick me up to feel good! I eat 2-4 oz of Valrhona every day! they make huge bars 🍫 or bite sized chocolate discs
Oh I love this! I have such a sweet tooth and love sugar-free dark chocolate, so that is something I am MORE than eager to try haha. I love tea and drink it daily, but more for relaxation purposes rather than for a pick me up. Thank you so much I'll let you know how it goes (maybe I'll do a small cup of coffee and a chocolate bar for being good lol!).
