Dec 14, 2017

A hot cup of coffee after you rise out of bed is not like anything else. To your daily coffee drinker, a day would not be the same if it did not involve that cup or two of java each morning.

The sensation of sipping that black liquid cannot be compared to any other drink.

Millions of people around the world drink share the same desire every morning and fulfil it with only what a cup of coffee can fulfil. Many of these people do it on a daily basis and could not see their day starting without it, they might even call themselves addicted, but can they be?

University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Health Educator, Kate Wilson, said coffee is most certainly a substance an individual can become addicted to.

University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Health Educator, Kate Wilson, said coffee is most certainly a substance an individual can become addicted to.

“You can definitely get addicted to coffee,” Wilson said. “When you have too much you build a tolerance to it, and when you take it away you get headaches. If you don’t have your coffee, and you get a headache, you need to address that because you are leaning towards a potentially harmful addiction.”

The question is not whether coffee is addictive. As most researchers and doctors would agree caffeine addiction is real. but they have debated for years if whether coffee can be a healthy addiction, or whether that morning joe can hurt.

Ryan Bleau, a student at the UW-Eau Claire enjoys his daily morning coffee just like many others do. He does not consider himself addicted, regardless of his daily consumption, but does believe it can be an addictive substance.

“I think people can get addicted, a professor of mine experienced withdrawals when we had an immersion trip to China,” Bleau said. “She was miserable for a few days before we could get some coffee.”

In addition to the pleasant taste and odor of coffee, Bleau said coffee is an integral part of his daily routine.
