Coffee Withdrawal
Are you a coffee addict?  Can’t get your day going without a cup of joe?  If so, you may know how hard it can be to kick the caffeine habit, especially if you’re a heavy user.

Now, the 5th edition of the DSM classifies caffeine withdrawal as a mental condition, according to ABC News.  Scientists have even done MRIs on coffee drinkers to show how their brains are affected after drinking a cup.   That’ll give you something to think about tomorrow morning, won’t it?

  • Thanks for including our income report from Dollars and Roses in your roundup. :)

  • I am glad that I am not addicted to coffee. I don’t even like it most of the time. It has to be the right blend for me.

  • When I stopped drinking coffee, it was a week of migraine or headache, The withdrawal was awful. But I’m glad I can go by my day without drinking coffee now. Just water in the morning. Tanks for the links.

  • I’ll stick with my juice! Good thing i’m not a coffee drinker. I usually try and stay away from drinks with caffeine in them; they’re so bad for you! Great post!
