Its Over! - I Failed.
Well it is over and it did not go to plan. You can read about my journey below.
Day one was so easy, I thought it was going to be a breeze if it carried on like this. But let me tell you, it didn’t last long at all. However looking back, I think day one was a breeze because I still had the V energy drink and cup of tea caffeine running through my veins. So yeah, day one was easy. Buuut, in the middle of the night..Sleeping was nearly impossible. I kept waking up every hour or that is what it felt like.
Oh my, any caffeine that was in my veins had fully gone. My eyes felt like they were going to pop right out of my head. I had no energy, I hated everyone and everything. I would have literally sold my first born for a can of Redbull. Buuut I slept fine, no waking up every hour, no hot sweats..you could say I slept like a baby.
I think the goodnights sleep is what made today great. My eyes didn’t hurt, I didn’t want to sell my first born for caffeine. I think I maybe on the up. I think maybe I won’t every need caffeine again. However, it has been difficult to dodge cups of tea and stay away from the energy drink shelves at the supermarkets. But I am ending day three with no caffeine in my system. Lets see how day four goes.
I JUST scrapped through day four. The temptation was so difficult to deal with. I did not think it would be this hard, I knew it would be hard, but this is crazy. All I am thinking about is getting a cup of tea and drinking it in one. I am not sure if thats because I am craving it or if its because my British ancestors are coming through and demanding I drink it. WHO KNOWS!
I tried. I really did try. But this morning, it was just too much. I had to drink tea. My wife tried to not make me do it, but I caved in. I failed. I drank tea. So close to the finish, but I couldn’t resist the tea goodness. It was just too powerful.
