I Love Coffee

Mental Health April 18, 2011

I was thinking about quitting caffeine…not happening.  I have done quite a bit of research on the biological effects of caffeine.  However, despite the adverse effects I greatly enjoy peeking out from behind my caffeine induced fog every once and a while.  Commonly people think of caffeine as a stimulant but actually it’s not it an adenosine reuptake inhibitor.  I know nerd stuff.  But it causes a build up of adenosine which in turn causes stimulation like effects.  It can also exacerbate anxiety…nerd fest over.
