Switching to Decaf

Until September of last year, I was drinking numerous cups of coffee each day. People would comment on my easy-going disposition despite all the caffeine.

This didn't last. Gradually I began to notice how agitated I was feeling and it was time to quit.

With ninety percent of adults consuming it, caffeine is the most widely used psychoactive substance and is legal and unregulated nearly everywhere. It is the drug of choice for our time-sick, speed-focused society.

When faster leads to faster still, everyone needs a boost just to keep pace. By stepping from this cruel hamster wheel, it is easier to quit acceptable addictions.
