As of 1 June I stop drinking coffee for 20 weeks. And the rest. I enter a four month programme aimed at taking my diet and lifestyle back to the healthy basics. That means 8 hours sleep a night, plant based eating, no coffee, no alcohol (win), lots of sprouts, fermented food etc. etc. I have been doing a lot of reading about this sort of lifestyle and I have decided it's time to give it a try. I think that by stopping drinking I have seen what my life can become when I remove a crutch, and now I am curious as to what happens if I begin to remove the other crutches. None of it will be as drastic for me as stopping the boozing, as that was destructive in so many ways - but I do think I might be surprised at the benefits it does have.
This is a 20 week experiment. If there is no significant benefits of from living this way, I will simply cease. I am interested however to see. I will report my progress here. :)
320 days sober.
