An all consuming relationship

In an attempt to stop drinking copious amounts of coffee, I’ve started drinking copious amounts of tea. I’m not sure if I’m having withdrawal symptoms but weird things have started happening. For years, I’ve been married to coffee and we’ve had a lot of happy times together. When I was down, coffee would pick me up and get me through the day. When I was tired, coffee would step in and help me keep focus and concentrate. One time I went out with Thirsty Dave for a few beers which turned into 85 beers and when I woke up in a different country, coffee was the only thing that enabled me to walk from the cell to the court room.
