Are You A Caffeine Junkie?

What’s the first thing a diner waitress says when she sees you?

Coffee? Right away!”

And you’d better get it ‘right away’, Sugar Lips, because you’ve got a caffeine junkie who is now hurtling through drug withdrawal and trying hard not to snatch up the butter knife and stab the annoying people seated next to him.  Withdrawal symptoms started about 26-hours after your last cup of the legal drug.

As soon as you score your fix, you tear up little packets of white powder plus containers of liquid poison, and quickly mix up the nearly boiling-brew – before pouring it over one of the most sensitive parts of your body. Ouch! It hurts so good – like the needle prick announcement of anticipated joy when a junkie pushes a needle into her vein.  Coffee is America’s Drug of Choice – BY FAR! 50-million caffeine addicts drink an average of 4-cups per day.

I don’t drink coffee but I certainly don’t care what you do.

However, I would care very much if you’re one of those flaming, “respectable” hypocrites who thinks you’re better than the millions of Americans rotting in jail cells because they loved a drug which is different than yours. Your drug is legal and inexpensive. Their drugs are illegal – making them very expensive.

Still, probably we’re all just junkies in the grand scheme of the universe – and it  doesn’t need you to judge what’s right or wrong.

    Civilization would not be possible without caffeine. You don’t drink it because you’re naturally higher than a kite anyway.

    However, I do agree with you. The war on drugs should end now. Legalize drugs and let those people go free.

    It’s not entirely about letting folks go free. after the civil war there were THOUSANDS of maimed people in pain. Drugs were cheap and available in the 30’s until the law stepped in to make money. But the previous 50 years showed people who had to take drugs die in groves. Nobody had to tell a kid what they did they saw it. So Dad’s and Grandma’s generation wouldn’t touch laudanum or morphine for anything. Free themm give them all they want, and they will just disappear right before your eyes. There is a natural law against bad drugs, called death. some folks would rather be dead but Mom and Dad just can’t stand the idea, so they make lawyers rich. Cops rich, the Mob rich, same as prohibition.

    Carl Sagan got his ass jumped for saying drugs were a good thing-but he was an intellectual talking to an audience of Moms. ON TV. Of course it was seconds before he was jumped, “Are YOU saying it’s good for my son to smoke marijuana??”
    Then he explained more carefully that without plants, that the human being had CULTIVATED over hundreds of centuries none of our modern operations would be possible. Cocaine makes the drugs used to numb your eyes, and opium makes drugs that will kill pain for operations-a lot of pain relieving drugs come from the opium poppy besides opium, morphine, and heroin.
    People never used to smoke anything including opium. Alexander the great’s army got opium for the pain in their sword cuts and killing jabbs and could only rub it on because THEY DIDN’T KNOW smoking it would make it a far superior painkiller. They gave my Father dilaudid pills for terminal cancer and he died in excruciating pain. Supposedly the most effective painkiller NOBODY told the DOCTORS that dilaudid only worked when injected. BUT Junkies I met when running with some old time real gangsters knew. It’s sorry that junkies know more about drugs than Dr’s but they do-at least the ones that live to be 70 or so.
