Coffee for the Addicted
Why is Coffee so Addicting?
I confess that I am addicted to coffee. It all began in high school when I started drinking latte's, cappuccino's, and frappe's. Then when I entered college, my addiction never stopped. My sophomore year I began drinking black coffee with lots of creamer. This was only the beginning. Thereafter, I slowly moved away from creamer and began drinking 1 cup of black coffee a day. This was fine until I got out of the dorms and into a house when I began making a full pot of coffee a day and drinking it all. In college, I would drink it all day long, in class, in the library and at home. I could even drink it right before going to bed. It was that addicting. Now, I'm not saying that coffee is bad for me, just that my whole day revolved around it. Today, I don't drink coffee as much as I used to, but I still like it a lot! So what are the effects of coffee?
First off, benefits of coffee. Some research that has been done shows that coffee can reduce the chances of Parkinson, type 2 diabetes and liver disease all while increasing your concentration level. My concentration level defiantly is peaked when I drink coffee. I notice it both at home and in the workplace. I just have more energy to do activities.
I recently began stopping my caffeine intake after 12 pm, because I found that I can't fall asleep and stay asleep as well if I drink coffee in the afternoon like I used to. The only thing that I can think of is that I was more worn out from my day that I was still able to sleep.
So, all in all, coffee is good for you and me. It has benefits, but also can cause some bad effects as well, such as insomnia, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, and restlessness.
And never stop cold turkey from drinking coffee if you drink a lot each day. This can cause heart palpitations and irregular heart beats as well as minor issues such as: headaches, fatigue, irritability, depressed mood and difficulty concentrating.
In the mean time, enjoy coffee while you can, its addicting!
