I might need to visit a Betty Ford Clinic

with·draw·al (w-drôl, wth-)
1. Detachment, as from social or emotional involvement.
2. Discontinuation of the use of an addictive substance.
3. The physiological and mental readjustment that accompanies such discontinuation.
4. A pattern of behavior, observed in schizophrenia and depression, that is characterized by a pathological retreat from interpersonal contact and social involvement and that leads to self-preoccupation.
5. Coitus interruptus.

I truly believe I might be going through Starbucks and chocolate withdraw. Tired, headache, kind of a bad mood, even more tired, fatigued. These are some of my symptoms and I know the one remedy.

Number 2, yes, I believe you are causing grief in my life. Haha, number 5, I don't think I like the way you sound. It has been at least 4 days since I last tasted the sweetness that is a Venti Iced White Mocha. Thinking about it makes me want to visit Brian, my local barista and get a hit of my caffeine crack. How can a yummy delicious drink have such a hold over me? Why can't I be stronger? Oh dear Lord, why is there a Starbucks on my way home!

P.S. I had a quick fix... only a grande. I know, I am weak . Check out this site for more information on caffeine withdrawal.

No need for such severe withdrawal. Let Starbucks be your daily treat, but restrict your order to the skinny, flavored lattes. With non-fat milk and sugar-free syrup, the Tall size is only 90-100 calories. It's my dieting secret.
