Caffeine-withdrawal hangover

So I've never been truly hungover. I just don't really drink much. Once in a while I have a glass of champagne or a mai-tai at Cynthia's luau. I may have been a little hungover on the Monday after close of Dickens because champagne and Martinelli's blended is just my kind of drink, better than either alone, and well, there was a headache the next day. But I don't really count that as a hangover as a couple of ibuprofen killed that right off and I had a merry old time tearing down Fezziwigs. But for the past two days, I've gone without caffeine. Well, that's normal for me right? Except that over the last couple of weeks I've definitely been all about caffeine. I was in Washington state for pity's sake! There's more drive through espresso places than McDonald's up there, even in the boonies. And so there was lots of good coffee. Plus a few sodas. I never really noticed being amped on caffeine. But now, back in the normal routine of Peet's decaf for breakfast and water in the afternoon, and boy am I muzzy in the head. Last night I had a whopper of a headache. So do I go get myself a nice afternoon soda and live the caffeinated life, or do I suffer through another day or two like this? The caffeine lives at the other end of a nice walk, which has the advantage of counting as exercise for today. I fear I shall succumb to the wiles of eager caffeine monster...

  • After cutting caffeine and suffering through withdrawal headaches, PMS symptoms decreased. Less bloating, less tenderness.
