Am I this addicted?

I think it's official: I'm physically addicted to caffeine. Either that, or I am just so monumentally exhausted that it has ceased to have any effect on me. This morning, I plowed through nearly six cups of coffee before I even left my apartment, and am almost certain to make a trip to the Espresso Royal later on in the day.

Admittedly, I am not proud of this. My body aches for sleep, which I don't fully understand since I have been getting anywhere from 7-9 hrs of it per night (much better than last semester). My mental acuity is really suffering; in fact, I'm struggling to even formulate these sentences right now. I'm so tired that, even after having ingested those six cups of coffee, I could still go back to bed and sleep till noon with little problem.

ASHHHSOAIFAOSIJD. Does anybody have some insight?

  1. This is probably a ridiculously obvious statement, but it just means that you're really addicted to caffeine. Even though you're getting enough sleep, you still feel tired because your body is relying on the caffeine to function normally. Also, since you've been drinking so much your body needs more and more. Today 6 cups, tomorrow 8. It's sort of a nasty cycle.
