Trouble Comes in Small Packages

If you have been reading my rants here for a bit, you know about my love hate relationship with coffee (I have, on more than on occasion, snuck it into a movie theatre). I did a post about it sometime but I have no patience to scroll through old posts, does anyone actually click on them and read them, anyway? That's what I thought.

Anyway, the love hate relationship causes me to go from drinking it daily to swearing of it forever. I usually last about a week if I am really serious. The problem is that the caffeine and even decaf makes the symptoms of menopause much, much worse. And if you have been reading here for a bit you will also recall that despite the fact that I am not quite 36, I am indeed suffering from hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and sleep disruption. It is as awesome as it sounds.

So at 5am this morning when I woke up sweating like a hog, I swore I would not drink a drop of the stuff EVER again.

Then later today when I got a call telling me I had won a raffle, I thought maybe it was a sign.

A basket of trouble

That maybe, giving it up FOREVER, was a bit harsh.


Afterall, this coffee has Ganoderma extract in it. Of course, this makes it extremly healthy such that the extract counter acts all the negative aspects of caffiene - or so they claim.

It's like giving crack to an addict or a beacon from heaven. I'll keep you posted.

hmmm wonder if it will help or if you'll just have to ration it out and only drink it when you wake up at 5am

I'm currently weaning myself off coffee. Hoping to be coffee free by next Friday.

That being said, I've heard great things about Organo Gold coffee and have been meaning to try it.

the day I had my physical for insurance I had to refrain from coffee until 2pm I was laying ON THE FLOOR. Head about to explode
I am addicted. I will not give it up, I will sweat my life away.
Good luck Kami, you are my hero!

5 bucks says your back on it in a week! LOL Hows that for encouragement? ;-) But this time I will be happy to be wrong (a one time only event) Good Luck!

I can relate, I finally cracked my Diet Coke IV habit (since January) the best thing to substitute is margaritas. Oh wait, I guess that's not really good advice. Hang in there, you will eventually leave the dark side, use the force?
