It all happened one morning when my wife was enjoying her morning coffee as she does every morning and as always it smelled so good but this time, I finally felt the urge to have some myself. I figured one cup wasn’t going to change my life. I also had been thinking that the benefits of the antioxidants in chocolate and green tea might be worth any downsides of a small amount of caffeine. So if I was going to allow a little caffeine in my life, then why not enjoy some coffee.
Everything in balance is OK right?
I was expecting to find myself wound up tighter than a banjo string, but I didn’t really notice much difference from the caffeine. I did find the coffee extremely rich after drinking herbal teas as my only hot drink for years and quite heavy in my stomach so I can only tolerate one cup a day in the am (versus the 5-6 or more a day, back when I stopped drinking it). I still enjoy herbal tea in the afternoon and evening and green tea every now and then as a warm drink following coffee.
I don’t feel like I am suffering, so its all good.
