    Oh yes, the caffeine headache. I know it well! I fell out of love with booze a while ago and have no problem staying away but I always end up back on the caffeine for a short while. The headache is crazy! Sugar is a tough one to kick though. As you’re finding out, it’s in everything, even savoury things that you wouldn’t expect (Heinz baked beans, anyone?) It’s fun finding new ways to eat sweet things without the sugar hit though and you’ll also develop a sensitivity to sweetness like you never knew. Good luck with it!

    Good to know we’ve got exactly the same priorities although I’d add cake to my list! I now drink decaf coffee since a colleague read me the riot act about how much caffine I was drinking – took a while to detox but I don’t miss it now and really notice it adversely when I have some. I look forward to hearing how you get on with the wine, sugar and chocolate as I’ve yet to get beyond dry January.
