I’ve been a coffee lover since teenage. People say coffee disturbs your sleeping cycle, but for me, a cup of coffee before going to bed was heaven, and I used to fall asleep instantly.
Sharing a small real-life instance on what made me quit coffee.
One fine day, I went to a coffee shop after office, to have my cup of energy drink, coffee. suddenly I was all dizzy and pukish, I couldn’t understand what exactly happened. Though I was fine after 25-30 minutes.
That was the very first time when I was ATTACKED by coffee.
Ignoring the incident, I went to another coffee shop the next day, and a similar thing happened there also. Extreme dizziness, racing heartbeats, and nervousness caught me.
Then I decided not to drink coffee for a few days.
I’ve been craving coffee throughout, and after 10-15 days, I decided to give it a try again. The same thing happened all over again, My fitness band noted my pulses as 120 Beats per minute, I was all nervous, and was dizzy! The problem was increasing so bad that I had to quit coffee.
A few days later in a regular medical test, the doctor suspected anxiety hence he asked me to take precautions.
I don’t even remember the last time I had coffee.
( I still have cold coffee once in a while, but not more than few sips, just to satisfy my cravings! )
Coffee used to relax me down, I used to crave it bad before going to bed and after working for long, I had to find a replacement for coffee.
By luck, I found a sample sachet of ‘herbal tisane’ in my kitchen.
That was the day when I tried herbal tea for the first time, and yes it was love at first sip for me.
It worked instantly on me, and I felt the same calmness again. Herbal tisane contains no caffeine, but herbal components.
Just wanted to share this story here, Have you ever experienced the same after having coffee?
