Currently finishing a presentation for tomorrow.

Naturally it's the time to have a bit of an existential nitpick.

So, today I've had:
- a large cup of coffee
- a large cup of cocoa with a dash of coffee
- a large cup of cocoa

For quite some time now, I've been saying I'm having a tea instead of I'm having tea.There was one day last week when I've had, like, 5 cups of tea in twelve hours. Because I have turned into a deplorable caffeine bot. I have been since I was 13 when I succumbed to the potent combination of perfectionism, I'll-forever-deny-it competitiveness in school, and having my eye on a really great uni.

I got into the uni, and along trailed my constant friend the caffeine cup. The caffeine cup has me by the heartstrings. I'm told by the doctor that heart palpitations are not healthy. So far I've had none. *cheers*

My all-time record is nine cups of very strong tea in eight hours. After that, I told me coworkers to stop making me tea every time they made it :-)

But I'm not sure I could make it through a day without caffeine (although less than nine cups). I average two cups of coffee and one or two cups of caffeinated tea :-)

I got to sleep...eventually :-)

I did the cold turkey thing once, not long after the nine cups of tea incident. The doctors thought caffeine might be triggering migraines (it actually helps to shut my migraines down) and the withdrawal was the most miserable two weeks of my life.

I stick to a couple of cups of coffee and lots of herbal tea now. It's the sensible way!

Caffeine addiction is hardcore! I drank a lot of mate tea in college and I remember quitting after finals one week and having a week long headache.
