My Cup Has Runneth Dry
Tea Free For A Week – Challenge
As promised this will be epic, seven days free of tea.
I am a certified tea addict. I have in all respects replaced water and nearly every other beverage with tea everyday for more then a decade. There hasn’t been a single day I haven’t had at least a cup of tea or a bottle of my favorite “ready to drink” tea. I don’t know what life would be like without tea. I decided I had to know.
I vow to stop drinking tea for a week. It’s an experiment to see how my body goes through withdrawal. I need to see if I am more physically or emotionally addicted. What happens when you quit tea “cold turkey?” Especially using a test subject that has been technically drinking tea all her life.
I will write a new post everyday covering my “ups” and downs”. I suspect it will prove interesting reading. Plus, I’ll include some of my crazy tweets and other silly things I may say or be doing. I have a feeling this will be a challenging journey for me. I promise not to leave out the nitty gritty. I can’t promise what I write will be coherent but I’ll do my best. Please don’t judge me poorly.
Make no mistake this will be tough, a true test of will power. I am weak when it comes to tea. I don’t easily become addicted to things, I just don’t have that type of personality so when I do it is something that will no doubt be incredibly difficult to break. I will not cheat and if I do I will come clean.
I’ll need your support, I want to see this through. I think it will be a great lesson in will power and will help me better understand just the level of addiction I am facing. The sheer impact of withdrawal both mentally and physically will be eye opening. I need to know just how dependent my body is to tea.
I will start this journey next Monday. Until then I need to work up the courage to prepare myself for the challenge. Please send me motivational comments, tweets, anything that will help me get through this. I know some of you are just as if not more addicted to tea than I am. You know I will need all the help and encouragement I can get.
I hope this post was worth the wait and lives up to the definition of “EPIC!”
