"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

Say what?!

Something wierd has happened to me. I haven't drunk tea for a week. Am not sure you are going to appreciate how much of a big deal this is......I mean am telling you that tea was my life. I couldn't function without tea, for real!
Let me make you understand the depth of this thing here. On a normal day for past twelve years i have averaged on four cups of strong tea a day. I come from kenya (where some of the best tea is found) so me and tea were inseparable..........hell we went together like white on rice. Our names were wouldn't think of tea without thinkin of me!
I hope you now understand how this feels.........I have been trying to give up tea or at least reduce my intake, but I never thought it will happen like this. So sudden, I didn't even get the chance to say goodbye......or drink my last cup of beautiful kenyan tea. It just happened........I woke up one morning and boom!....I didn't want anymore tea.
Now am trying to get used to life without stimulant to take me through the day. It's hard life albeit a healthy one.Live on juice and water as forms of fluids......kinda cool but still its nto cool. I miss tea!!!!!
This has left me saying............say what?

No lol that is not a drink but a sub for breakfast. It more nutritious than coffee or tea with bread/biscuit.muffin/canjera.
