    #%@..grrr

    DSL modem quit working last Friday. New one arrived today. Hard to deal with no internet. As bad as when I quit smoking.

    no what you mean I've been thinking of quitting smoking and my caffeine intake. I mean I drink coffee til lunch then change to the dr pepper for the rest of the day. and I've been weening myself slowly and never knew how addicting it is. thought it would be easier than smoking to quit but its been pretty hard. but thats the next vice is the smoking.

    I'm exactly the same way Phish. A pot of coffee and 2 or 3 smokes b4 I consider myself safe enough to drive on the street. I think I can give up the smokes easier than the coffee. I can easily go 6 hrs. w/o a smoke. DRB

    I'm telling you man the withdrawls are pretty bad. first few days I was getting very bad migraines, always tired and moody.Now its been about a week and I'm down to 1 cup of coffee in the morning and a soda for lunch and dinner. I've been sub'ing it for gatorade which seems to be helping also alot of vit. B complex and an herbal remedy called avena skullcap for the nerves. Now its just mainly getting over the tiredness of the day. Once that goes away gonna kick the butts.
    reason I'm stopping is that me and the girl have been riding about 40-50 miles a week on the trails and just cant catch my breath sometimes.

    I hate coffee, smoking and all that crap. Green tea and bottled water all the way!

    Sorry to hear about your modem taking a dump on efc. But it's good you are back on the net.
