Savoir flair talks about the fact that it is quite possible to quit caffeine. For a while I used to drink up to 2 tablespoons of that stuff in a day especially when we were busy throughout COVID19 serving people. In Melbourne, we saw 700+ cases throughout the day and lots of anxiety going on. There still is some anxiety going on there but not as much. Winston (2005) talks about having too much caffeine as a recipe for more anxiety, sleep problems, and increased hostility towards people.
I went really slowly to start off with and I plan to keep it that way.
Now I only have one tablespoon a day and some green tea. I usually have one to two days of no caffeine.
It’s easier during the COVID pandemic when we are not out as much to quit coffee. But I forgot about the challenge on RUOK day and I bought one coffee to show some support for the cafes that are doing it tough.
Yes, they say that caffeine has antioxidants in there, but it is possible to have too much of it which is bad for you. Too much caffeine can lead to jitters and the like. I also woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Now I hardly ever.
I also used to get very bad PMS and very heavy periods. Now it’s not so bad.
When I didn’t sleep so well I was tempted to have too much coffee. But now I hardly ever.
Too much caffeine also leads to a lot more anxiety in people.
