The American Psychiatric Association released a Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorders. (DSM-5) lists caffine intoxication and withdrawal as mental disorders. It’s the defibrillator that makes the world go round. I wonder the shear chaos that would erupt if, for one day, the world didn’t drink coffee. I, personally, can’t tie my shoes without having a cup of coffee in the morning. Before I know it, my shoes are across the room and there I lie, sprawled out on the floor in a full temper tantrum. It’s that bad. I could only imagine the full blown addicts (Denial is step 2?) trying to function in modern society.
The APA has seen such parallels in addiction with caffeine and hard drugs, they’re now equated with each other. More shocking than that is the percentage of adults who consume it in this country, daily (%83). This infographic by TopCounselingSchools.com shows you the real dark roast side to our friend, Joe.
