    Default Quitting caffeine is now a mental health disorder

    The recently revised American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, aka the DSM-5 or the mental health bible, now lists two new diagnoses: caffeine withdrawal and caffeine intoxication.

    Dunno about that - but I can tell you now that any crimes committed by a woman without access to chocolate could very well be defended on the 'grounds of insanity'!

    Everything is a mental health disorder these days. Just ensures real problems don't get addressed.

    Definitely some truth to that, Mike. These sorts of claims trivialise the whole mental health issue. And it doesn't do those of us who support more investment in psychiatric care any favours.

    Yup. We see it in the schools a lot here. There's only so much extra money to help kids and if every kid has a condition then no one really gets helped.

    When a guy goes into a school with two AR-15's and shoots up a classroom because he hasn't had a cup of coffee in a week then Ill buy into this argument.

    God, we are becoming a nation of pussies.

    Coffee withdrawal is a medical disorder now? WWII vets must think to themselves "we fought the Nazi's for this weak minded pussified generation?"

    BS. Three things you need to quit the caffeine...bottle of advil, gallon of water and handcuffs. 24 hours later and boom, caffeine free.

    Yep, I was never a heavy coffee drinker, I used to have 2-4 cups a day on average. Ok, they were big cups. I was told to quit by the doc after I had some medical issues. The first two days were very hard. Headache constantly, tired, easily agitated, it really did suck. By the third day things got easier. I would of never guessed quitting caffeine would of been that hard.

    As far as it being a mental disorder, that's bullshit.

    I purge caffeine once or twice a year much to the chagrin of my wife. I turn into Captain Asshole which is never a good thing.

    I do a caffeine purge when on vacation, because then I am just replacing it with alcohol, so I don't even notice it.

    I try to go at least one day a week with no caffeine, sometimes two. Just to keep in check. My job (pilot) makes it really hard sometimes to not use caffeine and or 5 hr energy type stuff.
