Mrrzy BS: What is the best chocolate? (138* d) RE: BS: What is the best chocolate? 06 Jan 21

I am extremely emotionally sensitive to caffeine and have had to give up even decaf coffee and -tea. Choc is still ok [crossing fingers, toes, and eyes] but during the years I could still drink'm, decaf coffee and -tea saved my sanity.

I still have *dreams* about coffee. Sometimes it is wonderful, aah, so marvy, sorry to wake up. Sometimes it is a nightmare of terror of caffeine-induced rage, and is horrible.

Oddly enough I did not start having the coffee dreams till after having to give up decaf tea, which was at least a decade after having to give up decaf coffee. But tea, which I had always drunk to soothe before having to give up coffee, kept its soothing properties, for a while, so I could use it as a morning drink to wake up without flying off the handle. For a while.

Now I am reduced to what in English is called herbal tea [ooh redundant?] and in French tisane, or pisse-mémé (granny pee). I hate chamomile but have found a version of French Verveine that I like.

Anybody remember Postum?
