Day 2- No Coffee (and a big ouchie of a headache)

Sunday, October 11, 2009

Yesterday was tough. By noon, I was ready to go to sleep. You wouldn't think that the very small amount of coffee I've been drinking would matter that much (1/2 small mug a day). By late afternoon, I hadthe huge headache that accompanies this caffeine detox. Yes, I've been through this process before so I knew what to expect. Sleep was full of dreams where I felt my head hurting all night. I think today will be the final day of this, if I'm lucky. Next will come a variety of other things- tiredness, craving, etc. I'll cross those bridges when I come to them.

My major concern is that, in the absence of caffeine, I was more hungry. I'd read that caffeine curbs hunger, and I'm hoping this doesn't add yet another challenge to the pile. I do not need more hunger. (smiling)

    Sorry about your headache and your restless night!! Good for you though! I only drink a small cup of coffee in the morning but I can't let that one go. Every time I have tried I have gotten physically ill. So I say... emoticon to you!! You can deal with whatever comes next if you get through this!!!

    Ouchie about the headache! You'll be better off in the end -- but I know you know that already. Maybe drink more other stuff to head off the munchies?
