    Sums it up pretty well. I support the cause. The depression rate in North America is way too high and coffee is definitely the direct cause of it. Nobody's going to look out for consumer's true well being. They gotta be aware and do it themselves.

    Often times the problem lies in the heavily funded researches from the coffee industry - giving consumers false reasoning to consume coffee. It's that much more difficult to pull them back to being coffee free as victims are much more unwilling to quit as they cling onto its synthetic 'benefits'.

    Oh the irony. I was drinking a double espresso as I logged in.

    I said yes to coffee.

    This is why I've always said the biggest gateway drug of them all is breast milk.

    Show me a drug addict, a thief or even a serial killer and I'll show you someone who has probably dabbled in breast milk..

    As for water, I fear for my life when I see people drinking that stuff.

    I have to admit, I'm addicted to OXYGEN!!!

    * Oxygen is an insiduous, invisible, odorless, tasteless gas.
    * It can cause EUPHORIA!!!
    * Its actually a highly reactive CHEMICAL element! - (O2).
    * It’s a strong oxidizing AGENT!!!
    * Elemental oxygen is produced by cyanobacteria, algae and plants - you know POND SCUM!!!
    * Oxygen is TOXIC to anaerobic organisms!!!
    * A form of oxygen, ozone is a pollutant near the surface where it is a by-product of SMOG!!!
    * You know what RUST is… iron-OXIDE!!!! - Oxygen is CORROSIVE!!!
    * Oxygen is used to produce plastics, acetone, ANTI-FREEZE and used for ROCKET FUEL!!!
    * Oxygen fire KILLED 3 Apollo astronauts.
    * Cryogenic liquids can cause FROSTBITE!!!
    * Scientists think oxygen can be found in outer space – same as ALIENS!!!
    * AND meteorites from MARS show traces of oxygen – you know what that means!!!
    * Fire is DEPENDANT on oxygen!!!!
    * Some elicit athletes secretly use it to get a BOOST!!!
    * Oxygen has been mentioned in CLIMATE CHANGE!!!

    SYMPTOMS OF OXYGEN TOXICITY:

    Tigersun... I have found that the best way to get off oxygen is to quit for about ten minutes. Most oxygenics who do this never revert to their addiction.

    Though the original post is in jest, pretty high probability that if caffeine were a new drug introduced today by a Pharma company, it would require years of testing before governmental regulatory agencies (such as the U.S. Food and Drug Admin, for example) would approve it for sale - possibly by prescription only.
