I started drinking coffee to help me stay alert and my parents got me a coffee machine for chirstmas. Last week was break for school and I had an extra bold coffee everyday. I went back to school yesterday and I was fine, but today was horrible. My head hurts so much. And fell asleep during 1st period and got a zero for the day! I had to go home and try to sleep it off by it was hard because I felt my head pulsing so much. I also had been feeling anxiety through out the day, I’m only going to drink coffee on the weekends. I have a caffeine hang over!
Find ways to vent your frustrations that won't cause needless hurt to family members, loved ones, friends or co-workers. Walk, run, vent into a pillow, find a punching bag, bend a piece of steel, or even bite your lip for the few hours (less than 72) that it will take before you begin to sense the onset of some relief. Talk about your feelings with family, friends or in your support group. Write yourself a loving letter to be read in a year from now that accurately describes what your chemical withdrawal and early psychological recovery experience was like and why you were more than willing to endure it. The mind does not remember pain or the bad times. In fact, your memories of "Glory Week" will rapidly fade within just a few short weeks. Give yourself the present gift of future memory. It may be just the motivation that you'll need to avoid temptation tomorrow.
