Straight and Curly Episode 17: A month with no coffee


If you listened to Episode 6 and felt I was a little dismissive about just how hard it is to give up alcohol for a month, then you’re in for a treat.

As you know, I gave up coffee for the month of February and in this episode of Straight and Curly I take the opportunity to sincerely apologise for ever suggesting that going to the pub and having a sparkling water with a twist of lemon is an appropriate substitute for an alcoholic drink.

We also share the surprising things we learned when researching whether giving up coffee is even a worthwhile thing to do … along with the reason why I’ve been able to stay off it ever since (despite having massive cravings as deep as 27 days into the month).
