Some may say that caffeine is not addictive, or that the studies on it are shaky at best. But you know, in your heart—your jittery, skipping-a-beat heart—if you’re addicted to the stuff. Research and science aside, you know what happens when you don’t get your coffee. You also know what happens the moment you do get your coffee. It may be all in your head, or it may truly be physical, but you just know if you’re addicted to caffeine. You tried ditching coffee, but all you did was turn to other caffeinated alternatives, which was sort of cheating. A little caffeine can be a great way to kick start your day, but you should look forward to your one or two daily cups—rather than simply dread the idea of being without them. You certainly should be able to go a day or two without caffeine without having some sort of problematic incident. Here are signs you’re addicted to caffeine.
