While there is still ongoing debate as to how caffeine should be classified substance wise, anyone that has ever tried to quit caffeine can attest that the withdrawal symptoms can be quite uncomfortable.

So, in some sense, caffeine is definitely addictive. At any rate, caffeine is the most used psychoactive substance on the planet, therefore, it must have at least some grip on the billions of people who consume caffeine daily.

Should You Quit?

If you are a slave to your coffee mug or energy drink, then you already know the answer. The real question becomes, how am I going to quit without failing my day-to-day responsibilities?!wean caffeine If that’s the case, then consider a product we endorse like Wean Caffeine to help you detox without withdrawal symptoms. Wean Caffeine allows you to gradually cut down on caffeine so that you can take back control of your natural energy levels while not losing control of your life.

What’s Wrong with Being Addicted to Caffeine?

squirril-addictGenerally speaking, there is no right or wrong answer here, but instead, it greatly depends on the individual.

If caffeine is interfering with your ability to lead a productive and well-adjusted life, then cutting back may be in order.

May all be some good reasons to evaluate your addiction to the substance.

Also, if your health is being affected due to a caffeine allergy or underlying heart condition then caffeine may need to be eliminated from your diet.

On the other hand, if caffeine isn’t being abused, you enjoy it, and it helps you be productive there probably isn’t any reason to not enjoy it.

If you have to be addicted to something, I guess there are far worse addictions out there than caffeine addiction.

    We learned in writing The World of Caffeine, the leading book about caffeine’s history and effects, that caffeine is not properly called “an addictive drug.” This description should be reserved for drugs like heroin and cocaine. Caffeine does create a metabolic dependence, but does not destroy people’s lives the way truly addictive drugs can and do. Check out our book for the whole story!
