I’ve known for a long time that coffee is not compatible with porphyria. But, I really like coffee and was able to get away with it for a long time. I’ve become so sensitive to it, that I had to quit. It’s been 2 weeks now; and, I am feeling much better. It really is an addiction. One thing that I’ve found that helps is to replace it with hot green tea (organic, of course). Having a cup of coffee with my wife, a friend, or business associate is an important routine for me. I can still take part!
I should have quit earlier. It was easy for me to justify, as I have had to give ups so many other things.
It could be worse.
