Drugs : Caffeine
The lecture slides mentions that Caffeine is the most widely used psychoactive stimulant in the world. Are we really surprised? Coffee, energy drinks, sodas and candies are all so addicting. How many cups of coffee do you have a day? Or a better question is, how would you react if you are unable to have your morning cup of coffee? Some people would be okay with it, yet others would be devastated. The video on the lecture slides Mad TV Coffee Maniac is very dramatic, but also realistic. People love to feel alive and energetic in order to get through their days. Caffeine is one of the most simple stimulants to get a hold of on an every day basis. Americans especially live off their daily fix of caffeine. We are so fast paced and so busy all the time, that we believe caffeine will keep us going.
