Do you drink coffee? When I posted the video “Why I Quit Caffeine (and you should too!!)” on YouTube in 2017, I quickly realized just how passionate folks are about their coffee rituals.

Fast forward to 2024 – and I still don’t drink coffee. Not a drop. Not even in ice cream! But I’m not entirely anti-caffeine.

I do, however, still have a cup of tea every morning, but I tread carefully because too much caffeine turns me into the Energizer Bunny with insomnia.

Many of my experiments start with a curious “I wonder what would happen if…” and giving up coffee was no exception. The result? No regrets.

Waking up is a breeze, falling asleep is a dream, and that notorious 3 pm crash is a distant memory.

And before you scroll away – hear me out – coffee affects the adenosine receptors in your brain. Drink coffee, create more receptors, crave more coffee—it’s a deliciously vicious cycle.

Stay caffeinated (or not)! ☕️
