My name is Cassie and I’m a Starbucksaholic.
Last week I said I was going to take a break from my favorite Starbucks drink because I was getting caffeine headaches. It started off well and I went without my normal Monday morning latte. I wasn’t cranky. I didn’t get a headache. Nada.
Then my day went to hell in a flaming handbasket. I was stressed out, anxious and on the verge of angry tears. I went home and tried to calm down but, I couldn’t sleep. I knew that I had to start all over again tomorrow.
Getting ready for work Wednesday morning, all I could think about was how much I wanted my favorite drink to start my day on a positive note. I hemed and hawed and tried to convince myself that not having it was for the greater good. In the end, I caved and picked up a venti non-fat, no water chai on my way into work.
Here’s the thing, some people have a hard day at work and have a glass of wine or a beer after work while they relax. I don’t do that. While I enjoy the occasional glass of (good) wine, it’s just not my thing. My thing is Starbucks. It’s my solace on a hectic day. It’s comforting and enjoyable. It’s personal.
So, I didn’t go a week without caffeine. I did realize, though, that maybe I shouldn’t completely cut it out. Instead, I think it’s best to cut back…which I did.
Everyone has to have their little piece of happy…mine is Starbucks.
