Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit (II)


Tuesday 12 November, 2013 by Uncle Spike

For my second entry to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit, I have selected my only real habit, that is, apart from blogging and working too much… my morning mug of coffee.

Now I’m no caffeine junkie, that’s for sure. In fact I am pretty well hyper-sensitive to caffeine these days. Funny though; after all, I live in Turkey, a land addicted to the stuff, from Turkish çay (tea) almost hourly, to regular Turkish kahve (coffee) – both of which are strong and highly caffeinated – but my old ticker can’t take it, beating double-quick within seconds.

So Uncle Spike has to go caffeine-free on the whole, not by choice, but a medical feature, shall we say 😦

But I have found find this rather cheap and cheerful local brand of premixed coffee and whitener which obviously hardly resembles the ‘real stuff’ as I can sup 3 or 4 mug full’s of these packs before any effect is felt, lol.

 – I used to smoke; quit that in 1991.

 – I used to drink; stopped in 1989.

 – I used to do all sorts; now a dim and distant memory.

So in terms of ‘habits’, not a lot remains. I even rarely eat any processed food or drink, owing to the fact that we grow so much of our own, so, well you gotta die of something, so my crappy cheap coffees are my one vice, my habit 🙂
