I am trying to kick my caffeine addiction. I have taken the first step and admitted there is a problem. I had to own up to my problem when I realized that everyday by 2:00pm I have a raging headache if I haven't consumed a couple caffeinated drinks.
Right now I'm facing off with a 2 liter of Pepsi that Jonathan opened today at lunch. The pounding in my head is saying "Pepsi! Pepsi! Pepsi! Drink it! Drink it! Drink it!"
Just as I was about to give in I got a phone call from a friend. I think that was my way out of the temptation. I'm re-focused now and I'll try to overcome.
Oh wow. I do love pepsi. There may be another reason why you want a pepsi at 2:00 as well. I found this on the Dublin Dr. Pepper sight a while back:
**It was in the 1920s that Dr. Walter Eddy at Columbia University studied the body’s metabolism. He discovered that a natural drop in energy occurs about 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. But he also discovered that if the people in his research study had something to eat or drink at 10, 2 and 4, the energy slump could be avoided.**
Just an F.Y.I. (or a way out if you need a Pepsi later.) ;)
