Hey Everybody, my name is Kat and I'm NEW!!

by Katmandu » Dec 17th 07 4:58 pm

Hey there! Just wanted to introduce myself .. been an avid tea lover since my girlfriend got me hooked on it 3 years ago when I was told by my Doc I could no longer drink coffee. I have developed a great fondness for tea and it has become one of my new healthier addictions. Can't go a day without it!! It goes great with my writing and reading and yoga!
I look forward to meeting you all and sharing some fabulous tea & learning from you about the great wonders of tea and how awesome it really is.
Ttyl, Kat :D

Hey there, Ms. Kat!

Welcome to the forums, I hope you'll continue to find them a fun and informative virtual hangout. Congratulations on your ongoing sobriety. I have a brother recovering from a near-decade of drug and alcohol abuse (and the kid'll just be turning 22 in a few weeks!), so I have an idea of what sort of struggle maintaining those months can be. Congratulations again!

I, also, led a similar life before tea came to me.

Sometimes I think about how similar my tea addiction is to all my old addictions. It turns out to not be that different at all, until I look at the health aspect. :D

Tea is absolutely one of the best addictions to have.

I'm glad you're on board, Kat. :D

Welcome! I agree, tea is an excellent substitute for all the less healthy, more intoxicating, dangerous beverages and substances out there... Good tea is the polar opposite of those chemicals- A healthful, serenity-inducing liquid- Cheers!

Welcome aboard, Kat!!!

The best way to stop doing something bad, is to replace it with something good. I know a little about this myself. :wink:

Huh. I know most about replacing good habits with bad habits! *laughs*

But I am also in the replace coffee with tea group, and loving every minute of it!
