Quitting caffeine is now a mental health disorder

The recently revised American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, aka the DSM-5 or the mental health bible, now lists two new diagnoses: caffeine withdrawal and caffeine intoxication.

But don’t let this new listing scare you out of enjoying a cup of coffee or a soda; a disorder isn’t considered problematic unless it interferes with daily life. And people won’t be diagnosed with caffeine withdrawal unless they suffer from three of the five symptoms — headache, fatigue or drowsiness, depressed mood or irritability, concentration difficulty, and flu-like symptoms such as nausea or muscle aches — within 24 hours of quitting.

We drastically decreased our coffee intake after getting an espresso machine. We have a couple of cups each in the mornings, but that's about it. That's enough to explode you wide awake in no time. hyper.gif

Soon coffee tea and cola will be drugs ,and regulated by the FDA. I can only buy tea with a prescription ..

Soon,scratching your left ass cheek will be a mental disorder .

Omg I hope not. I have a mosquito bite there. scream.gif

Caffeine Nicotine Cocaine Alcohol Crystal Meth Prozac...

Whats the difference?

Not much!

Some are socially acceptable (not demonized) drugs and some are not socially acceptable (demonized) drugs...

The two faced back stabbing powers that be say use the dope we push and sell (through the mass media) and your a okay...

But do the drugs we dont push and sell and we'll throw you into a f###en steel cage...

See tptb dont really give a damn if someones a hooker or a drug dealer or whatever...

But what they do really care about...

Is someone making MONEY without tptb getting a piece of the action...

I mean seriously think about it...

We cant even have a damn (legal) yard sale around here without first going to the town hall and giving them some MONEY...

A piece of our action!

Coffee, in moderation of course, is very good for your health and may stave off dementia. thumbsup.gif

I tell no lies and so i'll be honest and not lie and I wont bend the truth either...

I've swished some around in my mouth for a few seconds and then spewed it back out all over the insatiable woman who asked if she could spray it at me during a drug induced sexual frenzy about twenty years ago that lasted about a day and a half of not stop erotica and then she asked her girlfriend to come over and let me tell ya she did cum over again and again...

I plan on dying with a smile on my face...

And if I dont at least I'll die happy knowing that i did what I wanted to do as often as I could...

No matter what any other disagreeable controlling person said to try and talk me out of it or did to try and stop me...

I've always been that way...

Attracted to the dark side I guess...

Or maybe its the dark side thats attracted to me...
