This book is an anthology written by a diverse group of 40 individuals from around the world. They come from all walks of life, yet they are all united by the choices they have made. Confessions of a Caffeine Addict covers all major products including coffee, tea, yerba mate, energy and sport drinks, soda, caffeine pills, diuretics, medicine, chocolate and other foods containing the drug.
All have acted from their hearts and here, in the pages of the book, they have written from their hearts, telling the stories of what brought them along to their own conclusion about their use of caffeine.
This book was written to inspire more people to make informed choices, to know that their actions do make a difference and to know that, in their efforts to tell their tales anonymously, that they are not alone.

The narrator brings the different characters to life.
With the risk of sounding like one of the stories in the book . . . I love coffee. There have been times in my life when coffee was a food to my body and soul. I never though I'm addicted to it, but truth be told I still make coffee first thing in the morning even before I brush my teeth. After listening to the audio book I look at my coffee cup with mistrust and fear. What if my mood swings, the edginess and the sharp tongue are all due to my caffeine consumption. I still see my mothers shaking hands and the cup of coffee in them.
Read this! Change your life! Take control!
Well, I am not usually one for these kinds of stories but this one caught my attention, and I am so glad it did! It has been a long time since I have been drawn in by so many different stories, all of which are unique but surround the same subject... Caffeine. As a prolific coffee drinker myself I am all too aware of how it can induce some rather nasty side effects. But, to put it simply, WOW!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Confessions of a Caffeine Addict is just that, 40 rather remarkable stories about addiction to caffeine products. Simple right? Not so much, this entire anthology has been narrated expertly. Each and every story can induce an incredible reaction; sometimes laughter, sometimes contemplation and sometimes even tears.
Some of these kinds of books can come across a little preachy, ‘You must not do this’, ‘This is bad for you’, but not Confessions of a Caffeine Addict. It is more like listening to friends tell you about old times, when they had done something rather silly. You become so drawn in that you forget you don’t actually know these people!
WOULD I RECOMMEND?
Without a shadow of a doubt, this should be on everyone’s ‘MUST READ’ or even ‘MUST LISTEN’ list. We all have that friend who drinks far too much caffeine to the point they have to think about blinking... And if you don’t, it is you. I would suggest quietly gifting it to them, maybe for their birthday or ‘non-birthday’.
Enjoy it folks, this is a rare one. A work of art which will entertain and educate you!
