Okay - so I came up with this crazy new years resolution to give up soda, or should I say CAFFEINE!! I got to feeling guilty when I read an article in the Ensign and one in the New Era on caffeine. I rationalized for a LONG while and convinced myself that I really didn't have that big of a problem but it kept really bugging me, so I decided in 2009 I was going to be Caffeine free (except for Chocolate - that will never happen:) Let me just tell you that it has been one of the hardest things that I have ever done. I had a terrible( and I mean terrible) headache for about 10 days. I slept sitting up because if I tried to lie down I thought my head was going to blow!! There was a couple of times in the night when I thought Tim was going to have to drive me to the E.R.. I have since discovered and learned that I probably should have tried to wean myself off of it, although I think that would have been a challenge for me, because I seem to be an "ALL OR NOTHIN" kind of gal!! It has been a lot harder then I thought and the craving is still there. I guess you could say I have an ADDICTION!! Just thinking about what my body and mind (and spirit) has gone through the last 2 weeks in an effort to get off the stuff is enough for me to say" I will never go there again"!!!!
