The top 10 characteristics of Coffee Addicts
Coffee addicts are the most dedicated coffee drinkers in the world. They’re the people who love their daily cup of joe so much that they’ll do anything to get one; they will even go to bed without eating dinner if it means waking up with a hot mug of coffee ready for them in the morning. It can be tempting to think that you’re one of these addicts because you love your morning caffeine hit so much, but rest assured—there’s nothing wrong with loving coffee!
You have to have coffee first thing in the morning.
You have to have coffee first thing in the morning. It’s a ritual, and you can’t function without it.
It’s not that you’re addicted to caffeine—after all, there are lots of other things that make us feel good (like eating sugar and watching TV). It’s more like a compulsion: once we start drinking coffee, we need to drink it every day until our body tells us otherwise. The only way this will change is if someone takes away your cup or stops making it for you at home while they’re at work…which would be very annoying because then what are you supposed to do?
Your coffee mug is always nearby.
- You always have a coffee mug with you.
- You don’t like to drink out of paper cups.
- You have a collection of mugs, and they’re all marked up by who has been using them before you (if anyone).
- If someone asks if they can borrow your mug, the answer is always yes! And then it becomes theirs too…
You can’t think without it.
If you’re a coffee addict, then it’s pretty obvious that your brain can’t function without the bean. It’s a stimulant and an antioxidant, which helps keep your mind alert and focused. Coffee also increases blood flow to the brain, which means it can help keep you awake during long nights of studying or working on projects at home.
If there’s one thing that all coffee addicts have in common (besides being addicts), it’s their ability to stay awake long after they’ve had their last sip of caffeine—but what else do these habits have in common?
You don’t get coffee for breakfast anymore, you get breakfast for coffee.
You don’t get coffee for breakfast anymore, you get breakfast for coffee.
The first thing that comes to mind when you think of a coffee addict is their inability to function without their morning cup of joe. It’s not just an activity or something they enjoy; it’s a necessity! The caffeine in your cup gives them the energy they need to get through the day and perform at their best. They might even say things like “I need my fix” or “I can’t function without my morning cup.” Coffee addicts are obsessed with this beverage because it’s literally essential—they can’t function without it!
You’re ordering coffee instead of alcohol at happy hour.
- You’re ordering coffee instead of alcohol at happy hour.
- You’ve been avoiding alcohol because it makes you feel blah.
- Your bedtime is earlier in the day and/or later in the evening than it was before you started drinking coffee.
- You want to drink more coffee but don’t want to stop drinking alcohol completely (shame on you).
You’re doing stressful things like homework or work projects.
Caffeine is a stimulant that can help with focus, alertness, energy and concentration. It’s also known to give you an extra boost of motivation, creativity and memory. The good news is that caffeine isn’t addictive—you can drink it as many times as you want without having any negative side effects on your health or fitness levels!
But wait…there’s more: coffee addicts have been found to have higher levels of certain neurotransmitters (feel-good chemicals) in their brains than non-coffee drinkers do! This means that if you’re looking for some added peace of mind in your day-to-day life then maybe a mug of hot cocoa will do just fine instead!
You’re drinking more than two cups a day.
If you’re drinking more than two cups of coffee a day, your caffeine addiction may be getting out of hand. While some people drink coffee to help them stay alert and focused throughout the day, for others it can lead to dependency.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), three cups or less is considered moderate consumption—so if you’re drinking more than that amount each day, there’s something wrong with your relationship with the beverage!
In addition to causing heartburn and stomach ulcers when consumed excessively (and often without enough water), too much caffeine can cause anxiety and restlessness. And while these symptoms aren’t necessarily signs of an addiction problem per se—they could just mean that someone needs some time off from their favorite caffeinated brews—they’re still not something anyone wants in their life on a regular basis either way.
You start getting headaches if you don’t have it.
It’s no surprise that caffeine withdrawal headaches are one of the most common symptoms. According to the Mayo Clinic, caffeine withdrawal may also include:
- Muscle aches or pains
- Mood swings, irritability and depression
Cannot miss a Starbucks, Costa, MCDonald’s
Coffee addicts are a big bunch. When you’re out, you look for every opportunity to buy more coffee. At McDonald’s? Get an iced coffee (or two). Grocery store? Grab a box of K-cups on your way out (or two). Starbucks? Buy a pound of beans and a dozen K-cups (or two).
You have to have coffee first thing in the morning. Your coffee mug is always nearby, whether it’s sitting on the kitchen counter or hanging from one of those hooks they put on walls in restaurants that don’t want to lose customers’ coats or umbrellas when they leave but also don’t want them falling down onto people who might be standing behind them waiting for tables or checking out at registers and so forth… You’re never without it! And even though there may be times when this sounds ridiculous—like if someone asks me where my cup is while I’m eating dinner—you’ll still answer quickly before thinking about what they mean by asking “where” would go here instead: “Oh! Right! My cup!”
Make it through the day!
You have one cup first thing in the morning, one during mid-morning, one with lunch and another around 3 p.m., just so you can make it through the day.
You’re not a coffee addict because of how much caffeine you drink; rather, it’s how much time and effort it takes to get through each cup of coffee (or shot). Coffee addicts need their daily dose of java at least 2 hours before they go to sleep or else they’ll be awake all night thinking about what’s going on with their favorite beverage—and this is where most people start their day off right!
Coffee is delicious but can be addictive!
Coffee is delicious, but it can be addictive. You may have heard this before, but it bears repeating: coffee is a delicious drink that has many health benefits (more on those later). But there are also some risks associated with drinking too much coffee. If you’re an avid consumer of the beverage and feel like your morning routine is suffering because of it, here are some things to keep in mind:
- Don’t overdo it! Drinking too much caffeine over time can cause unpleasant side effects like nervousness and irritability—not exactly what you want from a stimulant like caffeine! That said, if you’re an occasional user who occasionally drinks several cups per day without issues then by all means go ahead! Just don’t forget about moderation when it comes down to making decisions as far as how much should I drink today?
- Try not relying solely on coffee for energy during work hours…or even just throughout the day long period where productivity could be increased by other means such as exercise sessions etcetera.”
Are you a Coffee Addict then?
I hope you learned something new about coffee today. Sure, everyone knows that it’s a fantastic drink and that it helps you stay awake longer, but are you a coffee addict? Admit it!
