I would start this "no sh*t, there I was...", but it's really not that kind of story.

I've been no-caffeine for a couple of weeks to see how much it affects my mood, but gave in today to the siren call of a Mountain Dew Code Red while waiting in line at the grocery store. After getting home with my red bounty and pouring half of the 20 oz bottle over ice (no sense in overindulging), I figured it'd be fun to enter the code under the cap on pepsismash.com, then giggled like an idiot at winning a free ringtone.

Now comes the hard part: picking one. Am I cool enough to have a Mary J. Blige ringtone?

edit: My new default ringtone is Mary J. Blige saying "Your people are looking for you, pick up your phone." Hee.

If you like Mary J Blige then yes you are cool enough for that ring tone. :)

I like her better than the other choices offered (like Mariah Carey), so now I have a ringtone of her saying "Your people are looking for you, pick up your phone." (:

Caffeine is a addictive. A few years ago I was off it for nearly 3 months due to a medical condition.

I stayed off of it for another week or 2, but then I had one at a company supplied lunch. Wham! Back on the addiction. Within days I was back to my 2-4 cans a day habit.


Sillyness aside, you are still balancing out your drugs, so be careful of mixing caffeine into the mix.

I had a one can a day habit, went without caffeine for most of my Los Angeles trip, then back to can a day or every other day until the doctor suggested I eliminate my caffeine intake to see if it affected my anxiety.

So far, it looks like the anxiety was mostly triggered by the late afternoon stomach-churning while I was adjusting to my meds.

At this point I'm having caffeine once or twice a week and in small amounts (12 oz or less) and it's working all right for me, as well as taking care of the caffeine-withdrawal headaches I was having without returning to a can a day habit.
