Besides, so many people are already caffeine users so trying to figure out what these people would be like without it is challenging. People that would want to ensure no risk should stop caffeine consumption. Nevertheless if caffeine seems like something that you cannot give up as the positive impacts it has on you, just monitor the consumption and do not go to unnecessarily high doses or see if decaffeinated drinks can replace your usual high in caffeine beverages.
They feel more people will begin using these products that are advertised as less harmful substances, whereas Sullum feels it would be better for people to change their habits to these “safer alternatives.” Sullum fails to consider benefits of relinquishing control to the FDA, however. By considering some of the positive results, Sullum might develop a different opinion and support the bill as he should. One major point that Sullum tries to emphasize is how people’s health will be disadvantaged once the FDA is given control. When making the decision about marketing safer tobacco products, the FDA is concerned about how the introduction of smokeless tobacco will be interpreted by the “population as a whole.” Sullum, on the other hand, believes the concern should be with individual consumers. He believes smokers could be doing something healthier for themselves if the FDA promoted smokeless tobacco.

Several people rely on caffeine to wake them up or give them a boost of energy when they feel down. Acting as a stimulant, caffeine not only improves concentration and focus, but also stops fatigue (Staff 1).

Caffeine has many negative effects. It is addictive like Oxycodone; however, many people believe that the positive effects outweigh the negative. Caffeine helped shape this world and it has provided medical help to those that have a disorder. On the other hand, caffeine is what drives us in the Twenty-First Century and it changes our brain’s chemistry.

While I believe this to be true, I also think that the happiness required to get ahead in life cannot be acquired from a pill, and must be earned through good experiences. If it was possible to gain happiness from just taking a pill, then people might lose all motivation to work hard, and go places in their life. A happiness pill could create laziness and a sense of entitlement, which would in turn hurt our society rather than helping it. Ravilious explains that happiness is a necessary component of one’s well being, and is also necessary for a nation to thrive (Ravilious, The Recipe for Success). By making all of this happiness artificial, given by a pill, I do not think that the outcome would be the same.

It is Klugers et al belief that it should not be happening; medicating the youth. His argument is logical to himself but, it may not be to everyone, especially people who need medication to survive. Kluger uses a sarcastic tone and is somewhat biased in his article. He believes that people today are just looking for the easy way out to feel better, when in reality they use medications to help them be successful in life.
For those who love coffee, the taste is often cited as the reason for the "addiction" and the use of that word does not imply anything like a drug addiction. However, try to take away someone's coffee abruptly and chances are they will experience withdrawal symptoms (2). The body develops a dependence on caffeine which is very obvious; stop drinking coffee for a day after being a regular drinker and get a headache, then drink coffee and it goes away. Some call this an addiction, coining terms such as "caffeinisme" and "caffeine withdrawal syndrome" (4), and classify caffeine as a mind-altering drug (3) (5) (6) (7). Many others protect caffeine, saying it does not compare to a true drug addiction and some even claim it has benefits-that it not only increases alertness but has other healthful properties (2) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13).
