Caffeine Use Disorder – It’s For Real

People often joke about their daily dependence on coffee, but new research is finding caffeine dependence is no laughing matter. A recent literature review cites population-based studies in which over 50% of regular caffeine users have serious trouble reducing or quitting their consumption, even if they have conditions negatively impacted by caffeine (pregnancy, heart condition, bleeding disorders). Consistent withdrawal symptoms and difficulty functioning also point to problematic use.

PositiveTip: Regular exercise, a wholesome diet and adequate sleep will help you stay alert without caffeine.
