When Addiction Sets In...

So I rarely have caffeine.

Recently I have cleaned up much of my shitty diet, having ate vegetables 4 days in a row. I also killed most of the usual forms of blatant sugar intake, other than having frappachinos.

In spite of sleeping in until 1PM I feel really tired at 10PM (and have felt so for the past couple hours). Part of that might be because I was a jerk and threw my back out lifting weights yesterday, but an even larger part is that I have been drinking frappachinos in the evening like 4 or 5 times in the last week.

I am saying screw the caffeine. I will probably still be up for another 3 or 4 hours and am just as good without caffeine. It is too easy to get hooked on a cycle with that garbage...and replacing frequent sugar intake with slightly less frequent sugar + caffeine intake is not a legitimate healthy route.

Caffeine causes some blood vessels in your head to restrict a bit. When they go back to their regular size that added pressure of them being a bit larger can set in a headache.

Now I know a week is probably not enough time to set in any sort of an addiction, but doing it for a few weeks means I will have serious headaches when I try to stop.

This may sound silly buy try Peppermint Tea. Great alternative, great taste and good for digestion too.

Hi Sophie
tea does taste great :)

Especially peppermint tea. Admittedly I don't have it enough buy I try. *sigh*

Love this blog BTW Aaron. Except it's giving me peanut butter cravings. So are you a smooth or crunchy guy??

I am a former CSR for Phillip Morris. I most likely have personally spoke w/some of you. Unfortunatily, all the comments I have reviewed are the sad truth. Marlboro doesn't care if WE get to redeam our miles. When the "miles" campaine started they did not expect the overwhelming response, but it has been 11 years and they still have not got it together. I wanted to let your readers know that "they" are aware of the problems, yet do NOTHING to correct it. Also, it will take months to get a cataloge,and up to a year to receive the merchandise. You may use all your miles as long as they "look" alike,as in no country store or advinture miles. One good thing is that they have no changed the format in quite a long time,so we may get something out of this afterall...
