I used to drink 2-3 cups a day but that habit slowed to a complete stop when I started getting panic attacks and realized that they always happened on the same days I had a substantial amount of caffeine. It wasn't the cause of the issue but it increased the likeliness of an attack considerably.I just started drinking coffee (never liked taste until now), and it definitely gives me an uncomfortable level of jitter sometimes. Hoping it starts to mellow out to the usual wake-up cuppa Joe. But to go along with the thread, I took a nice walk and everything smelled like Fall leaves, so that was nice.
Life feels better than it did when I was drinking it so much. (Part of it is genetic. Both of my parents had to quit coffee when they were my age.) Still, it had a significant impact on my thoughts and feelings that I never noticed before then. My productivity never changed with or without it. My mouth feels more clean too.
I do like the taste though. Sometimes I'll drink decaf to get my fix.
In terms of what I did today: worked, went to a meeting, got my car examined at an auto repair place. I'm going on a long drive out of town this weekend and both of my motor mounts need to be replaced. I'm lucky that they have the right parts but still peeved that it has to be worked on at all.
I need to take a crash course in car maintenance because I always feel lost when something goes wrong.
