Yawn! No coffee today...

As I was sitting in church Sunday morning, struggling to keep my eyes open, it dawned on me that even though I had gotten a good night's rest, I was still tired. Then I realized that I had fallen into a habit of having a cup of coffee each morning...at work. I do have a coffee maker, but it is in a lower cabinet, and I use it only when we have company. Yesterday and today I have resisted the urge to drink coffee in the morning, and instead have had a few cups of herbal tea. I don't want to be "addicted" to caffeine, so now's the time to nip it in the bud!

*Yawn*

I'm still tired though. One cup wouldn't hurt...would it? ;-)

I go through seasons of coffee addiction. I've found that tea, especially Irish Breakfast as it has the most caffeine, is helpful as a substitute when I am trying to escape a coffee rut.

I never thought I would get to where I would HAVE to have a cup of coffee in the mornings. My dad has always been one to drink a whole pot of coffee in the mornings. Now I only have one cup...not a whole pot. My in-laws got me a Senseo coffee maker for my bday...it makes one cup at a time. I love it!! That is what got me started to drinking my one cup a day. But I find that when I don't get my one cup...I do like you described...I yawn and don't feel energized. It has become a normal routine for me to have one. I even took one with me this morning when we left to do our running today...would you call that an addiction??...naaaa...well...I hope not anyway. LOL!!

LOL Sis. Julie! I think you just might be addicted. ;-)

I was drinking way too much. I don't mind being addicted to the a.m. pot but I was drinking it later in the evening and not sleeping well and my heart was racing. I switched to hot water and lemon and it's surprisingly satisfying and I sleep great.

Have you ever had mint chlorophyll? I pour a few tablespoons into iced water and it is the best morning drink. Refreshing and supposed to get the blood circulating.
Coffee yummy though.

Roberta, that mint chlorophyll sounds good! I believe I've had it before, and I know that it is good for you. I should try some. Thanks for the hint!
