Editor: As more and more people consume coffee daily, many become addicted to it.

“Americans consume over 400 million cups of coffee per day making the United States one of the leading consumers of coffees in the world,” according to the National Coffee Association and The Specialty Coffee Association of America.

According to brandongaille.com, a website for small business and marketing advice, “At least 68 million Americans will drink at least 3 cups of coffee every day. About 75% of those who regularly consume caffeine are addicted to it.”

While there are statistics that prove that you can get addicted, many people still believe that being addicted is not a bad thing.

People can actually get addicted to coffee because your body can get used to caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant drug that stimulates your brain and nervous system. It also speeds up the messages traveling between the body and brain.

Some solutions that people could do to help addiction is to alternate to decaf rather than regular. It could be harder but doing it slowly could help. Another solution could be to reduce caffeine consumption. If reduced, it could help many people’s habits.

Overall, there are many ways to prove that caffeine addiction is real, as well as solutions to help with it.
