Juiced

I drive up, “Yeah, I’ll take one order. The usual.”

My head was pounding and I couldn’t focus. I felt lethargic and tired. I needed to kick this habit.

The faceless voice came back, “Alright, here’s the cost.”

I went to the window and pulled out my cash. There was a quick exchange for the juice, for the delicious nectar that would alleviate headache and lethargy. I was dying for it.

It wasn’t always this way. Just a year ago there was no such addiction, no headaches, no lethargy. I didn’t need the fix. But now….

The woman brought it to the woman. We smiled each other. “How are you?” She was peppy.

“I’m doing great.” I smiled as best I could through the ocular migraine and took the cup. Goodness, the cup. I sipped it though it was hot upon my tongue, burning a little, but I needed it. I needed my java fix.

  1. Hasn’t it been reported that coffee actually has health benefits? High antioxidants and lowers risk of some diseases? Well that’s my excuse anyway :p Coffee is good.

    • Haha, so they say. I’m sure if the researches were doing heroine they’d find the medicinal benefits of that too 😛 Nah, actually coffee is good in moderation, but I want to get off of it entirely. A lot of those things can be replaced with other foods.

      • No more coffee, at all, forever? Oh the horror. I can cut down coffee but I don’t think I can ever totally get off it, love it too much :p Good luck though, I am sure you will be able to do it.

    • Haha Ernesto! Bad habits 😉 I used to smoke when I drank. There was a direct correlation between smoking and drinking and throwing up shortly after. Though no hang overs 😀
