In January I made the life altering decision to quit caffeine- mostly. I stopped drinking diet pepsi (which I previously drank a LOT of), and slowly cut down my 3 shots of espresso to 1. I did this for three main reasons:
1) I was addicted
2) diet pepsi has stuff in it that all my conspiracy-theorist PSU classmates swore would give me horrible nerve damage (or something like that)
3) at some point in the future I want to have babies- and they say too much caffeine is bad. plus I had a friend get prego who puked not b/c of morning sickness, but b/c of caffeine withdrawals- yikes.
Anyhow- for the last 8 months I have been strictly doing only 1 shot of caffinated espresso & 2 shots decaf in my americano. But today I am shaking, my left pinky is numb, and I am multi-tasking like a schizophrenic.
My point is, I think I got 3 caffinated shots today. Watch out world.
