Are you ADDICTED to caffine?
July 25, 2009 12:53am CST
I have noticed that more and more people these days are buying things like cokes, cappuccinos, and coffee. And i have to admit that i do take in a good amount of caffine, drinking both my fair share of coffee and cokes, but i would not consider myself addicted. Do you feel as though you have to have caffine? Have you ever tried going a week without caffine? I went a week without caffine on a camping trip and felt myself going through withdraws and thats when i knew that i needed to cut down on the caffine. What are your thoughts on this and are you addicted to caffine?

Yes, but I only drink one cup of coffee a day in the morning when I wake up. I cherish that cup of coffee. If I don't have it I am grumpy. and it takes me much longer to wake up. I did give up the coffee when I was pregnant with my son. It was very difficult. Out of all the things I had to give up it is what I missed the most.

I was a caffeine addict once. I wouldn't stop drinking Coke and Coffee. I even drank Coke to complement my meal. I drank coffee before bed. I was a coffee bean lover, smelling the beans made my life felt like I was in heaven. But now I manage to control myself because I realize drinking Coke gained my weight and too much coffee gives me migraines, fidgety and sleepless nights. I only have caffeine once in a while when I really need to. I rarely drink Coke, but only when I order a McDonald's meal.

Yes, I'm addicted to caffeine. I worked for coffee roasters for years. Developed a good taste for quality coffee. If I go without, I will most likely get headaches. But a little bit of coffee goes a long way. You can control it if you want to.
