A good cup of black coffee and a cigarette
A good cup of black coffee and a cigarette. I now don’t engage in either. Coffee doesn’t work for my system as I would get the jitters and could not function without it though it never really woke me up in the first place. Unlike cigarettes, coffee is not all bad. Coffee:
has more antioxidants than tea.
may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
stimulates brain activity.
has been shown in some studies to prevent Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and diabetes.
highly acidic which creates a pH balance that welcomes disease as well as an acidic stomach and heartburn.
beans are cultivated using high levels of pesticides – drink only organic.
can make you lightheaded or create a jittery mood.
