✨Story Time💫

I managed to get myself addicted to coffee when I was studying for my PhD many years ago. I needed coffee then for energy because my days were extremely long and I didn’t have much time to eat proper food. Everyone at the Starbucks I used to go to knew me. They knew the times I’d come in, so my drink was always ready even before I got there. I progressed from regular soya cappuccinos to triple shots then 4-shots and I’d have 4-5 cappuccinos a day, sometimes 6 depending on how stressed I was 😳 Yes, it was really bad.

I made a pact with myself to give up coffee once I did my viva. Let me tell you, the withdrawal symptoms were excruciating! I was in bed with terrible migraines for weeks, and it took me about 6 months to completely forget about coffee.

I went about three years without drinking a drop of coffee, but over the last three years I’ve allowed myself have one or two if I’m out. I’ve never really been out of control with it since my PhD because I don’t use it for energy, I just love the taste.

Anyway… over the last few months, my life has been very busy and what used to be just one mug of coffee once every few week to treat myself became a daily habit and then a more than once in a day habit and then a 3x a day habit. This time I haven’t been buying the from Starbucks but making them at home. I knew on Tuesday that I was going down a slippery slope again when I I realised I had drank half a large jar of coffee in three days. So instead of deceiving myself that I would reduce, I threw the jar in bin.

Guys I didn’t realise I’d starting drinking way too much coffee because I’m dealing with withdrawal symptoms yet again 😩 I’ve had the worst headache all day, and I know all I can do is just fight through it. I’m trying to focus on eating lots of greens and drinking lots of water to help me detox.

I don’t know why I put myself through this again, but we live and learn right? Anyhow, I think the contents of my bowl are fairly obvious. The grain is millet 💙

Are you a coffee addict too? Or are you smart with it 😊 PS if you made it to the end, you’re the real deal! Thank you for reading ❤️💙❤️💙
