    As it goes you'll feel very tired for about 2 weeks, cos as the caffee in your system metabolises it releases some chemical or somethink.....

    Caffeine is addictive so you can suffer mild withdrawal.

    Irritation + drowsiness.

    caffeine is addictive as hell (I am proof) and the withdrawal is not mild when you have a cranking headache, lack of concentration etc (mild compared to heroin maybe ?)

    Yes I have had this. If I go til 4pm without a real coffee, not this instant biz, I get a headache and feel shit.

    student/shiftworker/addictive personality/raver disease. Apples you fit all three I'd wager !! :teeth:

    :word: that's the good shit. baked, but with added motivation :D

    I used to be hooked on coffee, used to drink a few pints of strong black stuff every day. Slowly weaned myself off of it and only drink a couple of cups a week now. Don't even drink tea every day anymore o_O

    totally addicted to tea!! not so keen on coffee, though. yeah, you can get withdrawals, as such, mostly headaches.

    i used to mix my tea with stronger stuff, if you know what i mean. man, i was a mess then. but the kick you get is AMAZING.
