Addicted to Caffeine??

I realized Wednesday that in just a few weeks of drinking coffee everyday I've gotten myself addicted.

Wednesday was the day I went cold turkey for the day. That was the worst mistake I could have ever made. I was evil all morning and carried my bad attitude through the rest of the day, ending up going home and sleeping from 7 at night until 6 in the morning.

Thursday I drank my extra large hazelnut coffee from Dunkin Donuts like I had been trekking in a desert for hours on end. It tasted so good and so perfect. I was actually craving the drink.

I almost didn't get coffee today because my heart was already fluttering from a long night. I felt uneasy and anxious. But as I wrote my review for the iPhone, I realized I couldn't torture myself any longer and ran for the nearest Starbucks for a venti caramel frappuchino with a shot of espresso. YUM.

It may be crazy, but the first sip I took instantly calmed me down. I was mellowed and ready to go back to researching. I swear even the sun seemed to shine a little brighter.

Apparently if I don't have some coffee by 8 in the morning I'm doomed to have a bad day.

Add "caffeine addiction" to the list of things that just isn't the same anymore.

i'm a coffee lover myself but i've tried quitting coffee almost a month ago by having tea instead. it lasted for about 2 weeks, so now i drink both coffee and tea. both have caffeine right? i guess you can now call me a caffeine lover. hahaha!

i honestly can't go through one day without coffee. in fact, i haven't had one coffee-free day in like, years.

@ fab- LOL @ the caffeine lover thing! Tea is delicious but it's better when you aren't using it as a coffee substitute...

@ caffeinated muse - I've noticed I can go without coffee if I don't have to deal with people for the day. But if people expect me to function like a regular human being they'd better be prepared with a cup of coffee first!
