Caffinated Drinks

Posted in Hints and tips 17 Nov 2017

I am trying to juggle the caffine. I love to stay up late. I can sleep in but doing that every day leads to depression. Since I quit I have not been having coffee in the morning. I have been getting up at a more reasonable time. I have been trying to go to bed at a good time too. I have had some late dark nights when I just lay down anyway. That worked quite well. I got plenty of rest. I have been quit for 17 days. I don't think I could have quit if I still drank strong coffee. I have been refridgerating drinks of tea instead, and sipping iced water.

    Welcome, Penelope :)
    Whatever works for you. I had to drink more strong coffee, to make up for the loss of nicotine. I was always sleepy, and lack of focus for a few weeks :)

    I have always been a coffee drinker but in the last four days since I quit smoking I can't stand it - weird hey ? All of a sudden tastes soooo bitter.

    Hi Penelope Jane, congratulations!! As has been said, whatever works for you. Drinking coffee used to trigger having a cigarette for me. When I quit, I actually discovered how lovely coffee actually tastes. Good luck with your quit journey!
