I kicked the full-octane bean a few months ago because I realized that it had become a morning dependency for wakefulness and good cheer. And only sometime in the past couple of weeks have I stopped looking furtively and covetously at caffeinated coffee as though it were some sort of forbidden treat.

I suggest a post-afternoon green tea to help with the transition, and to address the mid-afternoon lull.

I also suggest ordering decaf americanos whenever you can. Soooo gooood.

the worst thing about giving up caffeine is the disdain you may feel coming offa the snotty kids serving coffee...oh and if you date some of said kids, then they'll tease you about it and imply that you're old. just sayin'
