I have a severe headache. I’ve had it for the better part of three days. Why? Because I recently stopped drinking sodas. I’m glad I made the choice to give them up, but, man, my brain hurts!
My sleep patterns have been destroyed. At night, I’m all over the place. Last night, I slept on a couch, upright in a chair, and, finally, a few hours in my bed. I thought that going without caffeine would make it easier to sleep, but I honestly think that my body is weirded out by the fact that I’m not flooding it with caffeine every three or four hours.
Over the next few days, the headaches should go away and my body should adjust. Until then, I’ll just have to deal, knowing that the benefits of my decision far outweigh the temporary discomfort.
