Sometime we don't really realize how much of a drug caffeine is, but it's always overlooked as a social passtime or a necessity in starting the day. Our bodies become addicted to caffeine, but don't really realize it until we make a conscious decision to NOT drink it. Headaches are a super common withdrawal symptom.

I commend anyone who gives up caffeine successfully
