Well - it's official. It's now been a whole year since I gave up caffeine. That means no Tea, coffee or Coke. At times, it was tough - but I had to do it. All part of the big behavioural experiment, to see whether caffeine had any bearing on my mood. At first, I had all the tell-tale symptoms of withdrawal from a drug addiction - bad headaches, and severe irritablity. That lasted about 4 days... ...then - nothing but a clear head; like total sobriety. I wasn't that surprised, really - I had been drinking over 2 LITRES of Coke per DAY, and had a twice-daily Cappuccino that was strong enough to kick-start a Jumbo jet... Who else has done the caffeine-free test? Who'd like to give it a go? (You're sure to get results in a week... go on!). Don't forget to post your findings!
