  • Spurning the "false god of coffee"

    from boingboing
    ------
    Robin Barooah gradually weaned himself off coffee and found that his concentration actually improved. He explains how he did it and what he discovered on the Quantified Self blog, which covers news about self-testing and self-monitoring.

          The statistical types would also be able to prove that its unreliable at best unless there is many people involved in the testing.

          Having said that, I do have it on good authority that taking appropriate dose of one of the amino acids can give similar boost to alertness and concentration without potential side affects of coffee.

            I drink coffee for flavour, alertness is not a motivator for me.
