It’s not like I roll out of bed and my first thought is COFFEE, but it’s not far off that. I will drink instant, but my weakness is really good filter coffee, or a cappuccino if I fancy a coffee with a bit of foamy frippery. But for the next 30 days I’m quitting. I’m quitting to see if I can cope without it and I’m quitting to see if it’ll make a difference to the colour of my coffee stained teeth.
This is going to be a real test for me as I’m giving up tea and my precious diet coke too. It’s going to be a tough month, missing out on all my favourite drinks and essentially going caffeine free for 30 days. I’m not doing it alone, the Oasis Dental Care team have sent me a pack of dental products to keep me going as well as a motivational message (go get em tiger!).
I’m pretty excited (and slightly terrified) about this, I suspect giving up coffee, tea and diet coke will do more to me than make my teeth a prettier shade. So who knows what I’ll be like in 30 days, watch this space!
