I drank a huge (2 cup) mug of coffee each morning (I called it my morning kick-in-the-pants) and a few Diet Cokes during the day. Then, about 6 years ago, I was required to quit caffeine prior to some surgery. <br />

First came 3 days in a row of headaches. :-( Then, after several weeks, the next thing I noticed was that I fell straight to sleep at night and woke up ALERT each morning. I was like a 5 year old! No morning fog... no midday slump... I got a great night's sleep and stayed awake and alert all day long! After the surgery, I decided to stay off caffeine.<br />

We tend to drink caffeine products to counteract our fatigue without realizing that the caffeine itself is the REASON for our fatigue. At least that's the lesson that I learned.
