100 Things about Me #3 Twitterpated or Caffeine...


About two and a half years ago...I got a little jumpy. My heart started thumping a lot faster than it should. At first I thought it was just a side effect from being Twitterpated. Then I realized it was evils of caffeine. As the horns were blowing, Taps my caffeine swirled down the drain never to cross my lips again.

Jen said...

the image (or sound) of taps playing as you drained your caffeinated cup is great. :) poor girl. i've been caffeine free for about 2 months now and it's not as hard as i thought it'd be...but i do miss the fizzy of a soda (pop).

Thanks for visiting me! I am not a huge coffee fan, but every now and then I'll quit the diet coke just to let my body have a break. I would love to tell you about Crossfit, I've been going for almost a year and I hate hate hate to work out. My husband didn't think I'd hang more than a month, but I've stuck with it.

Being Mormon, I don't drink coffee, but I've always loved the smell. I always envied those that had their lovely cups of the steaming, black stuff. But now, you're making me glad I don't!

I've been pretty much caffeine free since 1992. Every so often I would have a Diet Coke in a restaurant, but the past few years I've stopped even having the occasional soda. I just feel crappy after drinking one and caffeine now, in any quantity, will keep me up for days.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. It is nice to meet you! Stop by my blog, The Goat, anytime!

Good for you. I would hate having that jumpy feeling. I don't really do coffee unless it's a Frappucino, but I do love a caffeinated drink!

One Mom said...

I'm about 90% caffeine free...sometimes have an afternoon coffee...I like it but it doesn't like me so much! Don't know how people drink it all day long!

Thanks for stopping by. I've bookmarked you and will be back!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but during the freezing Nebraska winters, I do sometimes like to have a Peppermint latte!!

Whitney said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Lol! That's so funny, good for you for being strong and not having caffeine for two years. I guess I lucked out, because I hate having caffeine in my system!

Chris Bliss said...

I have been trying to give up caffeine for a few years now. Good job to you for saying goodbye to it.


-And thanks for the idea!

Your blog is tooo cute!

LORI said...

GOSH, I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO IT WITHOUT CAFFEINE! I HAVE A SIGN IN MY KITCHEN THAT SAYS,"MY BLOODTYPE IS CAFFEINE". I THINK IT'S CLOSE TO THE TRUTH! GREAT BLOG, THANKS FOR STOPPING BY MINE!

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. We have something in comon, we're both English teachers.

My friend gave up caffiene and drinks Tecino. Not sure if I spelled it right.

Karen said...

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I can identify with what you're saying here about the effects of caffeine, and I've tried to kick the habit a few times, but I'm just a much more wonderful person when I drink a boatload with milk and Spenda each A.M. It's tricky, but I've learned how to burp Evie with one hand so that I can continue to sip. :)

Octamom said...

I have a similar caffeine response from time to time...and so I'll go off the precious stuff for a while--and then all it takes is one good whiff of a Starbucks....

Blessings!

Cassandra said...
