i am the same with exactly everything you said about caffeine as well. For years now i've even been calling days on caffeine "caffeine days" or usually "coffee days" too. That's so funny. Yeah, caffeine has been the love of my life. Sadly enough.

> Yes, I do get a BIG kick from caffeine. Always have. Occasionally to the point of overactivity, reckless spending, etc. Also very addictive for me - repeated failed attempts to quit, withdrawing then starting again a few weeks later, etc.
>
> Caffeine works very well as an antidepressant for me - unfortunately only for at most two days a week. Any more often and I get some kind of tolerance effect, the mood lift is nearly gone, and it just makes me anxious, then depressed and exhausted when it wears off. And makes it even harder to get up in the morning than it usually is. (this is a big problem for me - I think I have a "delayed sleep phase" and have since my teens. Not good for a 9-5 job.) The last few weeks I've finally disciplined myself not to drink coffee every day. (It's ridiculous that such a mild stimulant can give me problems! Who ever heard of being in rehab for caffeine?!)

> I haven't been diagnosed bipolar, but hey, I'm new here. Actually I'm not sure the doctor bothered to diagnose me with anything before handing out drugs (for what I think is depression + [social] anxiety) - seems more of a pick 'n' mix thing.

> Yes, today has been a caffeine day. {8}~>
