Caffeine Addictions – Your Craving For Morning Coffee may Indicate an Addiction

If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t seem to function properly before your first cup of coffee, here’s some insight. Caffeine addictions outrank all other central nervous system (CNS) stimulant addictions. As an addictive drug, caffeine triggers alertness by constricting the blood vessels and increasing neuron firing in the brain. It is this physical “high” that prompts you to refill your coffee cup time and again. To offer some consolation, it’s estimated that 90% (http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg18725181.700.html) of adults consume caffeine daily, and many of those individuals experience significant withdrawal symptoms when caffeine intake is suspended.

It turns out that caffeine addictions and related topics are a source of interest for many internet users. The graphs featured on this page are a product of an innovative new form of research analysis. For a one-year period, queries for caffeine and associated phrases have been tallied and graphed.
