It all started about a year ago. I was constantly tired, no matter how many hours of sleep I got. I was irritable, anxious, and just overall not feeling great. I had no idea what was wrong with me, so I just tried to push through it. But one day, I just couldn’t do it anymore. I was completely exhausted and felt like I was going to collapse. So, I went to the doctor.
After running some tests, my doctor told me that I was severely dehydrated and that my blood pressure was dangerously low. She told me that I needed to make some changes to my lifestyle and that one of the biggest changes I needed to make was to give up coffee.
At first, I was in complete denial. I couldn’t imagine my life without coffee. I loved the taste, the smell, and the way it made me feel. But, I knew I had to make a change if I wanted to feel better.
So, I started by cutting back on my coffee intake. I would only have one cup a day instead of my usual three or four. And I started to drink more water. I also cut out all other caffeinated beverages, like soda and energy drinks.
After a few weeks, I started to feel better. I had more energy and didn’t feel so exhausted all the time. I was also less anxious and irritable. I was amazed at how much better I felt just by making a few changes to my diet.
Eventually, I decided to give up coffee completely. It was hard at first, but I stuck with it. And now, I feel great. I’m no longer tired all the time, my anxiety is gone, and I don’t get irritable like I used to. I’m also much more hydrated and my blood pressure is back to normal.
I’m so glad I made the decision to give up coffee. It was a tough choice, but it was definitely the right one for me.
