I'm asking this question because I overheard someone talking about needing at least two cups of coffee in the morning to "function properly".
Also, they said this while drinking ANOTHER cup of coffee and then went on to have ANOTHER refill ~10-20 minutes later, and all of this was 3-4 hours after they woke up.
Now, I'm no genius, but surely this can't be healthy.
I have several questions regarding the matter:
- Can you die from a "coffee overdose"?
- What kind of health problems could you get from drinking too much coffee?
- How is it possible for someone to need coffee to function, is it like how an addict needs drugs?
- If someone who's "addicted" to coffee stops drinking it, would that person suffer from withdrawal symptoms?
Also, for the sake of curiousity, are there any recorded cases of a "coffee overdose"? I've looked around but can't find any.
