Cheery Сoffee or Latte Depresso

(Opinion article)

Nowadays coffee has become a more and more indispensable part of our lives.  I have read several academic articles on the topic of caffeine dependence and disorder in its usage. However, as the main one to take a stance on, I would like to take into consideration an article “Caffeine Use Disorder: A Comprehensive Review and Research Agenda.” This article is aimed at describing problems of excessive caffeine consumption and its possible consequences. It is written in a conceptual way with high-quality background data collection and research.

Authors state that ‘Caffeine is the most widely used drug in the world.’

To begin with, people quite easily get addicted to caffeine. It happens because of its chemical composition and the effect it has on the nervous system. Caffeine stimulates ejection of dopamine, and stimulus reacts on it in a similar way to amphetamine or cocaine.

Additionally, according to the online-article “Americans’ Coffee Consumption Is Steady, Few Want To Come Back” Lydia Saad, this can be supported by an economic and trade side. Caffeine, especially in the USA, is claimed to be one of the most sold beverages (including the fact that most beverages have it as an ingredient).

Secondly, if a person decides to quit consuming caffeine, he/she will face the so-called “withdrawal syndrome.” In such a case people become nervous, irritable, can have sudden changes in their mood, can get sleeping problems. I would like to clarify that this argument totally justifies itself. In order to assess the quality of an argument – I have conducted an experiment myself. I have tried to have “7 days without caffeine.” I had met all the symptoms of the “withdrawal syndrome” on the third day. Especially my nervous system got unstable for this period.

However, a study “Caffeine Consumption and Academic Performance” among Medical Students of Dow University of Health Science” shows that in some cases having drinks with caffeine increases an academic performance among students. To be precise, from 100% of interviewees – 71.5% votes for a positive answer to this question.

Additionally, according to a study “Coffee consumption and health: umbrella review of meta-analyses of multiple health outcomes” Robin Poole, coffee (which mostly includes caffeine) is able to make the prevention of various serious diseases (for instance depression, mortality, type 2 diabetes).

Moreover, it is preferable to moderate the daily dose of it. According to the BBC News, noteworthy to know that it is approximately 400 mg per day, which accumulates in 3-5 cups of coffee (one 250 ml cup contains about 95 mg of caffeine).

Having summarized all the information I can say that there are truly a lot of caffeine-addicted people, but it is normal in modern society. People should be aware of all the possible good and bad consequences of caffeine consumption. For me, life without a cup of black coffee turns into latte depresso and the opposite of coffee is just sneezy. Surely, that is just a joke.
