Or seven, or whatever it was after they green-white-checkered it.  I suppose it was the jet dryer fire, and its resultant delay, that finally did me in.

After watching the Daytona 500 for the past week and a half, I missed the end because I just couldn’t stay awake.  I’d already nodded once when the cars starting slamming into each other again with 4 laps left.  So I turned it off, took out my contacts, and went to bed.  I doubt the race went back green before I was asleep.

Yeesh.  I hope I’m all-the-way accustomed to this no-caffeine thing by the time college football rolls around.  On the plus side, I didn’t get a headache until almost 5:00 yesterday.

Honestly, dudes and dolls, BoWilliams.com is a slog right now. I tend to blog at either the beginning or the end of the day—precisely where this adjustment is hitting my schedule hardest.  Trust I realize that every other post being about caffeine cessation is not interesting.  I’m thinking about it.  Hang with me.

  1. Dude I brought my Diastolic down 20+ after shifting to majority water. You don’t have to completely abstain, just eliminate in morning and at work. You probably won’t finish a soda after a while.

  2. Why are you giving up caffeine? Is sugar next?

  3. Ooooooh I see the commenter ahead of me (BamaDan) and the whole high blood pressure thing. Gotcha.

  4. BamaDan, that’s huge. Good deal. Alas, there is not a reliable relationship between caffeine and blood pressure from person to person. So far—this is day nine for me—any BP benefit seems to be modest for me, if indeed it exists at all.

    Carol, there’s that, but there’s also anxiety level, which is where I think I am seeing some benefit. I feel a lot more even-keel. I have no plans to cut out sweets, but I don’t eat a lot of sweets to start with.
