Anyone who tells you caffeine is not a drug is a liar. Anyone who tells you that you can’t get addicted is a liar. Anyone who tells you that caffeine withdrawal isn’t that bad is probably also a liar.
I’ve decided to kick the habit of drinking two liters (conservative estimate) of soda a day, on the account of I don’t want to die before I’m fifty. I’ll be spending today curled up in bed in pain and feeling sorry for myself, while I am brought fruit juice and encouraging words from people who love me. I am allowing myself one days worth pity party.
I’ll get back to your regularly scheduled fiction tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.
