I want to die.

(“Oh,” I hear you say. “That means it must be a weekday.”)

But I want to die even more than usual. Because today I consumed no caffeine and no sugar.

I did this because I hoped that taking such a step might allow me to wake up tomorrow at some point later than 6:00 a.m., the hour at which I have been sitting bolt upright in bed every morning for the last month.

We’ll see if it works, but even if it does I think I’m going to have to settle for being awake at that hour rather than giving up Diet Coke and M&Ms.

Because this is so horrible as to defy description.

    Caffeine-free Diet Coke? I actually prefer it.

    how’d you make out? I decaffienated a year or so ago (back on it now with a vengeance, tyvm) and caffeine free Diet Coke turned out to be not such a bad thing.

    Try melatonin – it might help you sleep better. Or at least longer, maybe.
