no more... that’s it!!!

I have made a decision.

No more caffeine is allowed in my body.



I have no religious reasons,
no commitments,
no medical issues.


I just want to live healthier.



For the last 3 days I have gone without~


no Starbucks,

no Mountain Dew from my beloved taco bell

no Red Bull, sweet nectar of the gods



nothIng!!!!


oh the headaches!


They follow me everywhere, haunting me, taunting me

I go to bed with them and wake up with them.

Do not pity me,
I brought this on myself,
WILLINGLY...


once it is out of my system that is it.

I will be healthier, or at least I hope to be!

I did that once... oh.. the headaches... and I gave in. I weakened, I buckled and I slurped down a huge Piggly Wiggly coke cola in the big piggy bucket... my tummy rumbled and I felt tumbly but oh the headache it cowered and it went away and I was happy. And now... I have to have that 4 o'clock coke cola... we called a truce... just one a day... GOOD LUCK!! xo xo Bryanna

PS) any sign of that bracelet yet?? I hope soon... it went out on Monday!!

You are strong & brave. I love my Irish Tea in the mornings and my afternoon Coke from McDonalds drive-thru. I thought about giving it up.I can be such a #@$%& with too much caffeine in my system, but I am too weak. I'd say take 2 Excedrin for the headaches, but its loaded with caffeine - 3 Advil should do the trick - Good Luck

I hear you. I've got it down to one cup of English Breakfast tea in the morning, I think I'm stopping with that though.... GOOD LUCK! Cold turkey is hard.

I hear ya sista! I'm in the same boat you are in.

I am on my 10th day of no cokes. I had a headache for 3 straight days. I cheated a little in the beginning and had a cup of hot tea... but it's been 4 days since my last cup.

Now, I just gotta stop using the little yellow packets to make lemonade. :)

wishing ya luck.

hugs, Joanna
