I Tried To Go One Week Without Coffee

I am an extreme coffee lover. Drinking coffee at least once a day has become a part of my daily routine and I truly don’t know where in the world I would be without it.

7 days without Starbucks? Who in their right mind would ever agree to that?!

Well apparently I would… and guess what?

I failed.

College students don’t need caffeine, right?


I decided to keep a journal update throughout what I considered the worst week of my life and here it is:

Day 1: I CAN DO THIS! It’s just one week, and I can definitely handle it.. plus the money I didn’t spend on Starbucks, could go to something else. What a smart idea!

Day 2: This 8 a.m. is dreadful… I miss coffee. I need it.. but I must pull through..

Day 3: *walking past Starbucks* Oh hey! I miss you… just a couple of more days and I promise that we’ll be reunited..

Day 4: And that is when I cracked.

I AM IN SUCH A TERRIBLE MOOD, I NEED COFFEE AND I NEED IT NOW! As I say this, I’m rushing my way to Starbucks, wallet in hand and order on my mind. Words cannot describe the guilty pleasure that I felt when I took that first sip of my white mocha.

Oh coffee… how I love thee.
