today, ash wednesday, is the first day of lent and i've decided to give up coffee for the traditional 40 day period ending on easter sunday. while lent begins today, i actually went cold turkey with the coffee drinking last friday. tomorrow will be a week gone by without something i normally drink at least 4 to 5 cups of a day!
by late friday, and well into saturday, i felt miserably - one long caffeine withdrawal headache that just wouldn't quit. but, by sunday afternoon, things brightened up considerably - helped in no small part by cup after cup of herbal tea :D now it's just the aroma in the morning that gets me - the craving has passed.
after lent, i may indulge in some decaf :D
