I love tea, but recently I’ve started to worry that maybe I love tea a bit much. I’ve been getting odd headaches when I go without for any length of time, and I’ve got a horrible feeling that my overindulgence is adding to my stress levels when I’m at The Work.I’ve tried cutting down while I’m working, but I seem to end up tired and irritable before. That’s bad enough, but my wandering concentration also seems to cause the clock to run ten times slower than it should.

As a result of the warning signs I’ve been trying to cut down, and I’ve even taken the radical step of switching to Tetley Decaf in an effort to wean myself off the caffeine. It’s going slowly, but I’m starting to make some progress.

I’ll admit that maybe tea has become a bit of a crutch for me over the last five or six years. In days gone by I’d enjoy a good old cup of tea with my breakfast, maybe one in the middle of the morning and one at night a while before I went to bed. The rest of my fluid intake was more or else made up byconsuming vast quantities of Irn Bru and Coca-Cola. I sure at one point, without a hint of hyperbolae, that I was drinking at least a two litre bottle of Coke a day and often much more. You’ll agree that’s a hell of a lot of sugar and phosphoric acid, and it definitely wasn’t healthy.

    I’ve explained caffine withdrawal to you before, just cut down slowly to avoid headaches. P.s it’s not like it’s crack or anything 😛

    It is like crack. Well except for being able to buy it in most shops, and being tasty.
