Coffee Vs. Coffee

If you know me, then you know I am a huge coffee drinker. If I see a #starbucks, yes, I am going to buy a cup of joe. If someone even mentions coffee I perk up!

Well.... that ship has sailed. I've officially given up the good stuff.


Sad face please.

I had my first sip of coffee when I was three years old. My mother wasn't a coffee drinker until after I was around and in her business. I asked if I could try a some, and of course she said yes.


Can't say no to me! Duh!


Around thirteen, that's when I became the coffee guru. In Newark NJ, there used to be a Starbucks downtown, on Clinton Street. (Where the Wells Fargo bank is) After school, I would tell my friends to meet me there. The barista knew my name. I had it made.


That same summer, I went to my mothers job. I had coffee... EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

School was back in full swing, and on the very first day I had the most insane headache. I threw up (sorry) I yelled at people. I even asked for coffee. Came home, and mom instantly knew... We went to a Dunkin Donuts, (more of a Starbucks fan but DD was open) I took one sip and the headache, the nausea, the pain, all went a way... It felt like a a ripple effect. (Mind Blown)





Of course my mother doesn't say you need to stop drinking coffee, after seeing the side effects.

We just drink more!!


Now, as an adult, and I have adult money, I used to buy coffee anytime I wanted. I mean... it can come to your house! And yes... I order Trenti sized cups. I was addicted. Coffee was life.


As much as I love coffee, having a lot of allergies doesn't help either. My eating habits are... lets just say very different from yours. However my skin, was still breaking out, my skin felt tingly, and I just wasn't sure what to do anymore... besides have another cup of coffee.


One morning, my mother says three three words I never thought she'd say.


GIVE. UP. COFFEE.

Hold on... you want me to take out my IV Drip, and be miserable?!? ... Yes.. she said. (with a smile)

How!!! How could I give up the ONE thing that I enjoyed. (I enjoy a lot of things)

But I did it, and ... I feel sensational! My skin is changing for the better, my attitude has improved, I don't feel tingly inside.


Not having coffee has changed my life. For the better.


I am more alert, less forgetful, I can think clearer, colors look brighter, I don't get tired so quickly, I don't get random headaches! I literally could go on. But WOW! Right?



I mean this is coming from the woman who used to wake up as a zombie, and turned into a human after having coffee. My body is thanking me, and I have to thank my mother. She was right.

(me 0 mom priceless)


I've been coffee free, for a month. (applause) Yes there are days, when I would like to inhale a Starbucks cup but, I am ok. If I can stop eating wheat, corn, soy, peanuts, and everything delicious. I can give up the coffee. Mind over matter!


All smiles now! Happy body, happy life.
