Caffeine – the divine molecule. Maybe, but it has an odd effect on people (and small dogs).

In general, addiction is not an amusing subject. But in the case of caffeine, I’ll make an exception.

A quick browse through social media sites reveals some pretty odd responses to caffeine addiction.

Below you will references to bacon, Chihuahuas, tingly feelings and popping veins.

And it’s all down to our love of coffee!

# Fell asleep at the coffee shop after having a triple espresso drink. Did I get decaf or is my tolerance really that high?

# you can go off the sodas... but you can't abandon the divine molecule! It's the true path to happiness. Caffeine? COFFEE!!!

# I think I need a bit more caffeine, bacon, nicotine, and just a dash of tension, then that vein will finally pop in my forehead :-)

# I had way too much caffeine. I'm rolling around my room in a fetal positioned ball.

# So I was having a relaxing cup of coffee this morning and put my cup down on the table next to the bed. Next thing I know, I hear slurping! How much caffeine does a six pound Chihuahua need? Not much! Roma the turbo dog!

# Why does caffeine put me to sleep!? Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!

# You dont need to see me drunk. You need to see me with caffeine in my system. ;)

# Is totally addicted to that tingly feeling he gets in his face when he has a little too much caffeine

# Monday, I'm determined to love you. Don't make it impossible, please. Here's a hint:

Don't quit!
by: Pamela

I tried to stop drinking coffee once. I made it about 3 months. Then I had a date with a guy who wanted to take me out for coffee. We went to a coffee bar and the smell was my undoing. I had to have some; and not decaf either. I felt that liquid gold slithering down my throat and suddenly - I got my energy back, my brainpower back, my personality back and my creativity back! I was ME again!
