Day 2 was horrible. Woke up with a migraine- took some drugs and got ready for work, but when the vomiting started I aborted that plan and went back to bed. Around 2PM I googled "caffeine withdrawal syptoms" and realised that probably I was going to feel like this for days and days if not *months*? I'm really puzzled by this- I've quit smoking and it was agony, but the *physical* symptoms only lasted about 48 hours. How can people still be fighting headaches etc after 9 *days*?? Maybe because they're still eating the Standard Diet of crap crap crap? I do not know. All I know is that a few minutes later I folded and made a cup of coffee. About 10 mins after that I felt like a new person.
Now, I know this is weak, and I feel bad. However I'm going to go with it- I'm quitting a ~4-6 litre a day (yes you read that right) Pepsi Max habit. It's the first thing I look for when I open my eyes in the morning, and I cannot be. without. it. So... I'm going to go with the philosophy that a cup of coffee or two in a day is an ok way to wean off this MASSIVE physical and psychological addicton I have to diet cola. Not bending in any of the other detox rules. I am drinking water, and our amazing homemade veggie juice. I'm eating fat free, unprocessed, vegan Eat to Live compliant for any meals I eat.
It will have to do!
I do already feel thinner :-)
