RE: events, alcohol, coffee and masks
I have knowledge of 2 of these things that may help explain.

Alcohol would be a very good explanation if you were consuming enough of it to become intoxicated. At some point after intoxication, the hangover effect happens. If you go to bed intoxicated from earlier drinking, thay effect could possibly come 3 hours later. It does that for me if I over-indulge and i find myself up at 3 or 4 AM taking mineral replacements and water.

Coffee is a touchy subject as most of us would likely be better without a massive dose of adrenal crashing stimulant first thing in the morning, but I love mine too. Just from memory of recent research, there are 3 issues with coffee. First, some people with gluten intolerance, or sensitivities can be affected as coffee seems to be a cross-reactant which can trigger similar effects. Secondly, coffeee can be an auto-immune trigger for people dealing with any number of auto-immune diseases... Depending on which part of the immune system is going haywire, there is a 50/50 chance that coffee can be a problem for you... Third issue is what seems to affect myself. Coffee causes reduction in appetite while also triggering rapid metabolism and calorie burn. We need fuel to go with it. I often neglect to eat brakfast with my morning coffeee and punish myself this way quite often. I have gotten some help from a trick i found somewhere and found it actually quite enjoyable. Add a teason or tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil to the coffee. Good for the heart and body and it will be used as fuel in this way to help prevent or reduce the crash.

OH NO, MR. BILL! That wouldn't be something I could do! Give up food for three weeks. Give up tv for three weeks. Give up shaving and showering for three weeks. (provided Mrs. R_G is out of town, that is). Give up bacon for three weeks. But couldn't give up coffee for three weeks. That just wouldn't be right.

That's an interesting suggestion. I also tend to skip breakfast for my morning espresso with miss silvia and mid-morning french press/aeropress at work. It's not doing my any favors but I must. Anyway, what does coconut oil benefit you with?

May I gently suggest that you treat your body the same way you treat your vehicle? You would not expect your car or truck or whatever type motor vehicle you drive to run without fuel. It is the same with our body. Coconut oil, in addition to tasting good if you like coconut, and there are brands that do not have the coconut flavor taste to them, also is a great skin moisturizer.

Jackson Browne said it best - "Running on Empty..."

You'll be surprised at how much less coffee you consume if you first drink a glass of cold water in the morning.

RE: events, alcohol, coffee and masks
Cold water with a nice palmful of unrefined mineral salt is a great thing to do before coffee. The salt helps hydrate you and counteract the diuretic affect of the coffee. Keeps you hydrated during the day long.
As for fats, they are fuel. Its complex how our bodies work, but this fat provides caloric energy for lifes activities when used properly. I straightened out mu cholesterol just bu adding in good fats, and yoir brain needs this stuff to do its thing as well. Unrefined keeps the lipod profile intact and also doesnt kill off the vitamin E. Heat processed oils are all bad, even the "good" ones. Look for supercritical CO2 extraction (for fish oil) and cold pressed (everything else)as terms to go by.
