I have been drinking coffee every morning for the past 10 years. A failure to do so has led to serious consequences and this is not a form of hyperbole. When I attempted to stop drinking coffee in the mornings, my body went into complete shock and I was ill for an entire month. This is the severity of my caffeine addiction. I am dependent on it.
My parents have always been big coffee drinkers, in fact the first thing that I remember being able to smell as a child was coffee. I loved the smell and would pour Coca Cola into a mug, pretending that it was black coffee. I couldn’t wait to try my first cup and I was 12 when my parents finally thought that I was old enough.
