Is caffeine addictive?

No. FoodInsight.org says there is no evidence of caffeine addiction.

Caffeine is a mild stimulant. If you have it regularly and then stop abruptly, you may experience some minor effects. But most of us can reduce or eliminate caffeine from our diets without serious problems.

In fact, every day, millions of people enjoy beverages with caffeine, including coffee, tea and soft drinks. Because caffeine has been consumed for centuries, we know a lot about it. It is widely studied, and how much we use in our drinks is known to be safe.

We recommend contacting your doctor if you are concerned about caffeine.
