I made a commitment about 2 months ago to quit drinking coffee. Before, I’d committed only to cutting back for a few weeks, and while I succeeded at that, this year I began to wonder if it wasn’t affecting my health over the long term. I have iritis, an eye condition which causes pain in my left eye, and I was taking a lot of ibuprofen and frequently washed it down with a cuppa strong black joe. I started feel that while there isn’t a known connection between my eye problem and excessive caffeine consumption, there was no good reason to risk it. I decided to take a prolonged break from my favorite pass time in order to give my body plenty of time to detoxify.
I discovered Postum about three weeks into it. Postum ain’t coffee, but it’s a nice way to take a few minutes and enjoy a hot, strong aromatic drink.
