I've gone and gotten myself addicted to the caffeine again.
Seems like it always happens when I go to Michigan to visit my family. I start self-medicating to overcome my jet lag and next thing I know I'm adding extra scoops of caf coffee to my usual quiet brew.
I know this bender is temporary. Soon I'll be up to three-quarters caf, one-quarter decaf. I'll start getting the shakes and heart palpitations and the kind of morning hunger that I imagine bulimics must experience where I can't cram enough food into my gullet. Then I'll quit.
But for now I'm in the sweet early days and I'm enjoying it.
