I’m in coffee-reduction mode. Friday I limited myself to two cups. Ditto Saturday. Ditto Sunday. Today I cut down to one. The plan is to get down to zero and stay there for a few days, then switch over to iced tea for the summer.

I did this last year and really enjoyed it. I like coffee a lot — maybe a little too much. My daily consumption tends to increase with time, and that doesn’t seem entirely healthy. I was almost up to a full pot a day. Occasionally all that acid makes my stomach hurt.

I like iced tea too, unsweetened, but only during the hot weather, which is almost here. Tea has less caffeine than coffee, so I don’t think I would find it satisfying if I just switched over directly. I need a fallow period, a few caffeine-free days, to let my body forget the stimulation it’s come to take for granted.
