I made a attempt at a no caffeine today, does not in any way seem to be working to my advantage, will take a stab at it at a later date

They aren't going to let you attend AA if you don't have coffee in one hand and a cigarette in the other. :P Seriously though, one thing at a time mate, tackle caffeine when everything else is stable. It's awesome to see the positive changes you're making and even more awesome that you seem quite happy with those changes. 8)

That sounds smart, you just stopped taking a pharmacy worth of drugs a few weeks ago. Give yourself time to adjust.

Just been living, working, schooling, working again, wandering doing hippie things. :) I mostly keep up with folks on Facebook these days.

Ahh hippy things, I have been a huggin lotsa trees now-a-days. The more I get back into the groove of meditation the more I see how important it is to tap the energy and wisdom of that which is around me. As long as I stay away from sweet sweet mary jane I am down to hang with some hippies. Man that freaking plant never did me wrong, too bad for my absolute lack of self control. Maybe someday FAR down the line.

I think it's a good idea to wait on kicking the coffee too. If you want to take it down a couple amps, you could try replacing some of your coffee with tea.

How are you doing today, Tom?

Say how's it go Tom?

Tom is great, 5 weeks tomorrow, allergies are whooping my ass and since I used to abuse benadryl thats out, and all these other drugs make me feel different and for me thats a slippery slope, so i sneeze, which makes me grumpy, but nothing like I used to be.

Apples and onions, have the same type of anti-histamines as does Bee pollen which many people swear helps with allergies. I use to be one of them, also buckwheat.

I would wait on coffee, but then again I am not you. Keep up the great stuff.

So Tom, what are you doing for endofin rushes these days?
And have you given much thought as to what was keeping you in that haze all those years?
