Just Say No

That's it -- I'm saying "when." This morning I had what I think was my 6th Iced Raspberry Mocha in the last four days. *cringe* Some were home made, some were Starbucks bought, all were delicious. Until this morning. I sat here at my desk and had what was either an anxiety attack, or a very unhappy reaction to yet another iced mocha. Nausea, heart racing, trouble breathing -- all but the nausea are usual. This leads me to think perhaps my body is trying to tell me that it's had it with the sweet and the caffeine overload. I can't say I blame it -- I do know better.

So, goodbye, my sweet friend. For now we must part, though I'm sure we'll meet again someday, probably in a controlled environment where I can't take advantage of you. Please believe me when I say this is more about me than it is about you.

Ha, looks like we all have our fixes. Mine is the Starbucks Doubleshot on Ice. Can't leave the house without getting one.

This is why I switched to decaf years ago! Same taste without the caffeine induced anxiety. Just call me an enabler!

I am a grande white chocolate mochat. I could have 2 or 3 a day and feel completely satisfied. My hubby says Sbucks is too strong and I disagree big time. Hard to cut the cord, though...good luck.
