Is caffeine every morning bad for you?
So I have meds I take at night that cause drowsiness, and it sometimes carries over to the mornings. I've solved that with a can of caffeinated diet soda (because coffee is nasty), but is that a bad habit to get into? Because caffeine is a drug, and it is addictive...? I know a huge chunk of the population has their morning coffee, but are there side effects? Like if you miss a soda, will you be even more tired like withdrawal symptoms?

Soda is way worse for you than a cup of coffee - coffee actually has some health benefits in moderation. Soda - none and the phosphoric acid is killer on your stomach and teeth. I have been drinking coffee every morning for most of the last 40 years - hasn't killed me yet.

What can happen is you just keep pushing down your adenosine till it floods back. That's when you drink a vente espresso and still fall asleep where you stand. If you have the luxury, you end up sleeping clear through a weekend when you stop, but that's necessary for functioning as well as for the caffeine to have much of an effect.

Caffeine for breakfast has been used by billions for generations.
