I had a problem with alcohol abuse most of my adult life. I still have the occasional beer (or 12) but I feel so miserable for days after, I've pretty much given up alcohol. My issue is coffee now. I probably drink 12-14 cups a day. Too much caffeine, cream and lots of sugar. The coffee makes me hungry, I eat more fast food, more coffee, more food, on it goes. I've I.D.ed the problem, but with no motivation to modify my habits on it goes. Yesterday I accidentally caught a glimpse of myself in a store window. "What an ugly fat slob I am". The last couple of days I've cut Benicar from 40 to 20 mgs. a day. Today I quit coffee. My poor financial planning means I 'm gonna have to work till I drop. If that's the case I've got to start feeling better.
