It is for me, I get a headache everyday that I forget to drink a cup or two of coffee in the morning. I think its more about the caffeine then specifically the coffee though for me.
I don't think drinking coffee is an addiction but a habit. I love coffee and would really miss it if I had to stop drinking it.
If you drink coffee with caffeine and suddenly stop, you will notice a difference in how you feel. When I was pregnant, my doctor told me to stop drinking coffee and tea with caffeine. I had a three day headache
That's a good question. For me, addiction makes it sound negative, and I don't think drinking coffee is anything negative, so in that way its not an addiction.
I did stop drinking coffee for a week once and it was a little challenging and not very fun. I have come to the conclusion that I just really enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, and its become more of a habit than anything else.

I've heard it said that caffeine is the most addictive substance there is...I don't know if that's true but I definitely couldn't live without my fix in the morning! And the rare days I have had to go without I always end up with a headache and a bad attitude!
Anything can be an addiction really...coffee is actually a common addiction. Some people rely on coffee at certain times of the day. Without it they may get headaches,experience mood changes, and other negative effects.
Yes coffee is an addiction, more specifically the caffeine in the coffee, you can become addicted to caffeine, you end up getting the shakes when you do not have caffeine until your body realizes no caffeine is coming.

Decaffeinated Coffee? What is the point?I gave up drinking coffee about a month ago because I was feeling overdosed from drinking too many cups every day. I liked to drink coffee because it seemed to psyche me up for work. I am now drinking tea instead. I could always drink decaffeinated coffee but...

Do you feel that drinking coffee has had a positive impact on you?The argument about coffee being bad for you has taking a turn these days. They are saying that is has many more benefits than ever thought to be before. Do you have any personal thoughts on the subject?
