Did you adapt the healthier lifestyle during the conference? Before it? After it?
Were you a participant of the conference? Working at the conference? Was it at your workplace?

Did the healthier Lifestyle relate to food? exercise? Something else?
Did you walk the stairs because the elevator was always busy with conference participants?

Healthier lifestyle in relation to drinks? Drugs? A specific health issue? Medicine? Risk-taking? Is it healthier for you? Others?

So you were drinking less coffee during the conference?
Is a coffee machine relevant? Was it missing? Was it broken? empty? was there a long queue before it? Were there no cups? Was the coffee not free during the conference? Are any alternative drinks relevant (such as everyone getting free water)?

Didn't you have access to your nearest coffee machine because of the conference? Were you not admitted into the kitchen with the coffee machine? Or the way to the coffee machine was unaccessible?

Didn't you have access to your nearest coffee machine because of the conference? Correct! Almost done, one more detail is missing Were you not admitted into the kitchen with the coffee machine? FAish Or the way to the coffee machine was unaccessible? No, the coffee machine itself was (and still is, until tomorrow) inaccessible

The canteen? Cafeteria? Both The whole ground floor? No

********SPOILER********

We keep our coffee machine in the lab, so whenever I want coffee while someone is running an experiment, I have to go over to the cafeteria in the adjacent building and get coffee there. However, the whole building, including the dining hall and cafeteria, is reserved for a conference this week. Instead of walking all the way to the next cafeteria, I decided to simply reduce my coffee intake for a couple of days.


Thanks for playing, and please don't neglect my other puzzle :)
