Giving Up Coffee (For One Day)

I'm thinking about going one whole day without coffee.

I used to forego coffee one or two days a week, without ill effect. But for the past several years I've been in the grip of what's clearly an addiction, and I don't much like it. The last time I went a whole day without coffee was last Yom Kippur, and I was headachy and difficult to live with and had to have an afternoon nap. Part of that had to do with the fact that I was also fasting... but still.

I won't attempt this until the end of the week, after my classes have all been taught. If it's not too awful, maybe I'll try it again the following week. I'll keep you posted.
