Uncaffeinated #2
I have now been without caffeine for another 24 hours or so.

The headache was horrible this morning. 2 Ibuprofen didn't hardly make a dent. Extra sleep did not help. Miserable.

I had a coffee at work today.
As I took my first sip gulp, i could feel its warmth spreading through me.
One by one in quick succession, the hairs on the back of my head stood up, like an armor getting locked into place around my skull.
My muscles twinged and settled down.. it was like water moving through a dried sponge, restoring it to fullness.

And it was frickin' DECAF COFFEE! Which has, what, 5-10mg of caffeine in it? Pretty powerful drug. Headache is still there, but vastly subsided.

Depending on the status of that White Mocha on Sunday.. i'm now either in day #2 (48h) or day #6 of my withdrawal. I have been able to get up at 6am pretty easily the last two days, and be relatively functional (albeit with a crashin' headache). I can also feel that my mind is quicker, here at work, like, there's throttle left over.

Crashing headache could actually be good. Its because more blood is getting to my brain, and my brain doesn't know what to do with it, its used to parched constricted blood vessels. Headache goes away when brain gets used to it again.
