Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers caffeine to be both a drug and a food additive. As such, caffeine is legal and can be obtained cheaply. Even so, people who consume caffeine tend to exhibit psychological, emotional and physical dependence. For this reason, they may experience withdrawal problems when they cease to consume caffeine. Similarly, people who are chemically dependent on substances such as alcohol, tobacco, and cocaine may find it difficult to stop. Personally, I have encountered challenges in my efforts to stop caffeine addiction. In this regard, the paper will explore how my experience will enable me to assist chemically dependent people.
