Decaffeinate Me, Please
They say caffeine is the most widely abused drug in the United States. I rarely drink coffee but I have been consuming Red Bull and other similar energy drinks like they are going out of style. It wasn't until this past week though that I realized how much I depended on caffeine to get me through the day. I eliminated all the energy drinks from my life and have tried to even avoid caffeinated soda. Wow. I have been so tired. Even after 9 hours of sleep I find myself dozing off in class or coming home and taking a nap. This withdrawl should only last a short while but it is scary to see how vital caffeine had become to my body. Yikes!
