If you’re tired you drink coffee, it keeps you up. It’s good for people who have to wake up early. It restores mental alertness, increase body coordination, and increase your flow of thoughts. Drinking coffee and being artificially awake makes me feel good.

Addiction to caffeine really isn’t a bad thing considering all of the positive research behind the drug. It makes you feel awesome and energized. People often feel more alert and talkative after consuming caffeine. It puts most people in a good, positive mood.

“An estimated 80 percent to 90 percent of Americans report having caffeine on a daily basis.”

Caffeine can be found in many everyday foods such as chocolate, coffee, tea, soda, energy drinks, and in over-the-counter medicines such as aspirin.

Whenever I have a headache, I just drink coffee and feel fine in a few minutes. It’s very interesting that so many pain killer medications like aspirin contain caffeine. Many people who suffer from migraines are prescribed pure caffeine to relieve their symptoms.

Drinking coffee also protects you from disease

Plus according to the Earth Times, “CHICAGO, Jan. 22 Moderate drinking of coffee is being shown to have generally positive and protective effects on the emergence of disease conditions, say U.S. researchers.

Food Technology reports that recent studies of coffee in combination with reviews of research gathered over the past 30 years reveal that consumption improves glucose regulation and lowers the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, among other favorable effects.”

Even possible cancer-protective properties

“Scientific evidence now suggests that moderate coffee consumption — 3 to 5 cups a day — may be associated with reduced risks of certain disease conditions… possible cancer-protective properties, possibly due to its naturally occurring and brewing-produced antioxidants”

So being artificially awake doesn’t really seem so bad.

Remember, caffeinate responsibly.
