Coffee is addictive. It contains what is called caffeine ehich is a central nervous sytem stimulant. When you drink coffee , caffeine is released which stimulates the brain. When the level of this coffee goes down it will cause with drawl symptoms wanting for next cup of coffee

Yes it does sounds like coffee addiction. Then in that case I am addicted to tea I guess. If i dont get my 11 am tea, even i feel i cannot work. I feels irritated, and not able to concentrate in work.

Hi, I feel light headed every time I take 1 cup of nescafe pure coffee. I kind of have feeling in my right ear after that. However for 2 years now m right ear can just feel as if there is water in it even if I haven t taken any coffee. If I take energy drinks to keep awake, I really get messed up, sick in the stomach, dizzy.
