Need Caffeine Now!

Dear Baby Jesus,

I gave up drinking my fabulous Monster Energy drinks for Lent. Not that I’m a practicing Catholic. I probably haven’t been to church since my First Communion. I needed to break free of them. I was drinking at least one 24 oz. Monster a day. They are not good for you.

I was good for 2-3 days. I started getting very bad migraines from not having my fabulous green drinks. Angry Husband told me to stop bitching and have a Coke. One Coke turned into 2 Cokes..and you know the rest of the story.

So once again, I’m now giving up Cokes. I’m on Day 4. I’m dying!

How does one make it through 10+ hours of work without caffeine?

Maybe I should attend Church or something? I can learn patience…good virtues, and all of that.

Maybe I need a new addiction..oh yea, I have one, my MacBook.

I will get over my caffeine addiction, I’ve done it before…

P.S. That picture above was taken my little ole’ me with my Blackberry. Angry Husband was also a Monster Energy Drink addict. He is reformed.

Ugh...I don't drink coffee either. I made it through the day today. I don't know how it will be when I'm working double shifts next weekend.

I practically overdose on caffeine ever night. People always comment on the diet pepsi and and red bull and how much I drink. I figure it's better than running into someone on the way home in the morning!

I gave up coke about 2 years ago. It was not easy. But now about every 2 months I get a craving and give in. I can drink about 1/3 of a can before it starts to taste like syrup and hurt my stomach. So it gets a lot easier. I went from drinking 4 cokes a day to 1/3 of one every two months. I actually cannot drink hardly anything with sugar in it. Water and crystal light are my best friends!!

Giving up caffeine cold turkey is HARD! Does weaning off it count for lent?!

I go to church. It doesn't help with the caffeine thing...lol. I'm still addicted to caffeine! And forget about getting through work without it, I don't go through a day without it.

I can honestly say I have never had an energy drink of any kind...not even "red bull"...I've pictured it tasting like cough syrup although I can't imagine people drinking them if they tasted like cough syrup....

I'm Catholic and failed to sacrifice anything for Lent this year. And, I drink Red Bull every day.Surely I'm going to hell.

How about a cup of coffee? You could even drink decaf, which actually contains caffeine.

Give hot or iced green tea a try. Not nearly as much caffeine as an energy drink, but enough to ward-off migraines. AND it has health benefits, so there's no guilt.Good luck!
