Tag Archives: caffeine withdrawal
When I secretly began packing little yellow pills to help me survive my early morning travels, I realized I had a problem. Without this proper preparation, pre-dawn wake-up calls could go bad very quickly—headaches, grumpiness, inability to function. Sometimes, the night before departure, I’d dash from the hotel to a nearby Starbucks or order room service coffee, just so I could have cold java waiting for me in the AM. In a pinch, though, those caffeine pills could ease the withdrawal symptoms. Oh, yes, my caffeine addiction was just that bad. And it all started when I was six.
