Great job and welcome to the club. One fun fact about me is that I've never had a cup of coffee in my life. My parents always needed it before they did anything, so as a kid, I decided that I didn't want to be dependent on a drink that would hold up Christmas presents (for example). I've had a few sips by accident from wrong drink orders, etc., and will never touch the stuff. I've surely had plenty of slow mornings and days without caffeine, but feel that I need to provide my own energy/with nutrition. I also haven't had soda in nearly 8 years besides the random time it's in a mixed drink I'm handed. Since you mentioned it, I also haven't had an energy drink in the last 4-5 years as well and will keep it that way. While you had a reason to have it for your blood pressure, I've always felt that they were a scapegoat and cheat code for making up for bad decisions for an unnatural boost.
Plus, think of all the $$ you've saved by beating your habit? Compounding rewards there.
Thank you! It's nice to see like minded people as usually when I'm telling people I quit, those who are addicted are trying to defend themselves (not that anyone is attacking or criticizing them) and by doing that, they are trying to convince me of what I'm doing is wrong. It's a really strange thing because everyone is free to do whatever they want. The bottom line always is that one or two coffees are needed a day 😁 To which I always say, not for me.
If you think deeper, when you get to the point where you don't make a step in the morning without coffee, you may ask yourself, who's in control of your life as the answer is definitely not you, but coffee. Been there, done that, don't want to get there ever again.
That's a very good point. That is what I had to do after quitting, especially with low blood pressure and I did it! It is possible, I'm the living proof and if I was able to do it, so is everyone.
Soda? 😁 Yeah, another thing I quit years ago. The most damaging drink you can have.
Energy drinks are the last I touch and only in extreme situations, most of the time I have half and the other half is going down the drain 🙂
At the end of the day everyone knows what's best for them and should also know actions have consequences.
Thank you for the nice feedback and keep up the good work! I always love to read your posts, have a great respect for what you do, honestly!
