Caffeine Addiction

Who doesn’t drink coffee? This drink has been consumed by people all over the world since long long ago. Caffeine serves one primary purpose, which is to stay awake. Whether it’s to study for a good amount of hours when those midterm weeks come along, or when you get that 3:00 a clock feeling at work and need a burst of energy. You can also find caffeine in other drinks such as sodas and energy drinks. Redbull is a very popular one among many.

We may not even pay attention to how many cups of coffee or the amount of energy drinks we drink a day because we don’t think it’s a big deal. But if you are a regular coffee drinker try not having your morning coffee and you will notice the withdrawal symptoms. You will be more irritable, might have a headache, and just a different mood as if you had that cup of coffee. The symptoms vary on the person. Things like how long this person has been drinking coffee, and their daily intake. Our bodies build up a tolerance so each time we need more and more to get the same end result we started out with.

Substance abuse follows the same pattern as caffeine addiction. Obviously drinking coffee isn’t as dangerous as doing drugs, but the intake of caffeine engineers various chemical releases and binds to our brain receptors which creates a counterfeit reaction. Cocaine and heroin follow the same deal.

A study has been at Harvard stating that daily intake of coffee with very little creamer or sugar can actually decrease the risk of diabetes by 9 percent. So it’s been said that in the long run caffeine really has no serious health effects. However one shouldn’t get totally dependent on coffee and find other even healthier ways to stay awake or get your work done.
