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:

The Good…

  • 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.

The Bad…

  • 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.
