    Quitting Caffine is now listed as a Mental Health Disorder and could disqualify you

    WSJ Today in the personal Journal full page ad- I have this in front of me so No i didn't make this up ! Here is a brief snippet -

    Caffeine the most benign seeming drug of choice for many of us is now the basis of two official diagnosis in the Mental Health Bible released in May. The latest version of the American Psychiatric Association Diagnostic and stat manual of Mental Disorders, commonly referred to as DSM-5 includes both caffeine intoxication and withdrawal . These conditions are now considered mental disorders when they impair a persons ability to function in daily life ..

    Say What ? A source was said to say " it is clinical meaningful diagnosis that could be useful to Psychiatrists and other health care workers seeing someone experiencing these symptoms......

    So much for when you visit your Doctor, Quick Care.....Nope No Coffee..... Sir I will have to report this to the Affordable Health Care Office and the FBI since you are unstable for firearms . Do you currently own any ? Do you go to church? Do you belong to any Firearms related web sites ? Who do you send emails to ? Oh scratch that we already have all that information.....

    Yes, I know I could not function without my morning coffee (20 oz. total) and afternoon cokes (32 oz. total). I mean, I'm not even kidding.

    Perhaps this is the article: The Coffee Withdrawal Diagnosis - WSJ.com, June 10 2013, by Sumath Reddy @ WSJ.

    That's it . The problem I have is the collation with caffeine and the word association with Mental Health Disorder, because you know where this leads....Common sense does not and will not prevail . We have started down this road in some places, it starts out small and benign, then the association with Mental Health . I know what it says, but this is the kind of stuff that will haunt somebody in the future . Of course I am talking about your second amendment rights and EBC . Just my humble opinion :)

    And Yes I love coffee

    My doc suggested I should quit cut back from drinking a whole pot of coffee daily. I didn't. Does that count?

    Yeah, you've got a disorder alright. Congenital 4th Degree Shakes / Next-Day Headache Disorder / Overburdened Whizzing Syndrome ...

    We're doin' a number on ourselves, ain't we? Nobody's the cause and the problem. It's always something else. Personal responsibility doesn't quite have the same meaning it once did. Heck, I'm old enough to recall PR discussions while I was growing up. We still have them here. But I don't know of many people under the age of ~30yrs who even think of such things, generally, much less teach their own so they're instilled with a deep sense of it.

    Here are the operative words--- "when they impair a persons ability to function in daily life."
