COFFEE 2 Comments JOSHUA on April 8, 2007 at 10:45 am It might not be addictive at low levels, but coffee is clearly addictive at more than a couple of cups a day.

However, those who drink coffee regularly, like myself, will get “caffiene deprivation” headaches for a few days if they stop cold turkey. For me, yerba mate is a direct drop in, and I can drink mate for a week, and then drop it, and minimize any headaches due to the deprivation. The latest study showing that coffee can act as a heart protectant is very interesting as well. Log in to Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
