Today I opted for a cup of tea. Cue me feeling exhausted for no good reason right at the start of the day. I've only just realised what the problem was as I popped into Costa Coffee and bagged myself a bucket full of the stuff. Whoosh! Suddenly I'm awake again.
I remember trying to come off caffine when doing the Atkins diet. It was impossible. I went all shaky and totally lost the plot. The only way through it would have been to sleep for days while the stuff drained from my body. Not entirely practical.
Addiction is a strange thing. My most intense experience with it was with cigarettes. That was a real tough habit to kick. I wouldn't dare have even one go on a fag nowadays.
