I'm not a particularly addictive person. I crave change more than routine and I am usually the voice of moderation. I'm glad I don't normally chug a pot of coffee in the morning because getting over tea is bad enough. I had so little yesterday that I could feel the comings on of the caffeine withdrawal headache when I woke up this morning. I drank lots of water, sniffed some clear my head, and still needed a little fix. So I filled a big mug and only let the tea steep for about a minute. I want more, but I'm not going to do it. The little bit helped and I think I'm going to make it.
Otherwise it's going fine.
No animal products; check. Come on, I have to make it sound like an accomplishment.
No gluten; check. French fries with Tabasco ketchup isn't exactly "cleansing," but it's gluten free. Brown rice is my friend.
No sugar; check. Not counting the sugar in ketchup. It's a condiment!
No alcohol, check. Went out to a pub and had club soda. Hence the french fries for dinner.
No caffeine, well, I've significantly cut down. I think I can make it a whole day this weekend.
I'm really glad I posted that I'm doing this. Thanks for all your support. Without it, I'd definitely be guzzling giant vats of tea and slamming bagels. So thanks.
