Addictive Working

So I’ve noticed something else. As per my post of yesterday vis a vi Addictive Writing, I’ve noticed that this trend towards being unable to write without having an addictive substance in me, extends also towards regular work.

It’s most distressing to know that Coffee is my power source and if it’s ever taken away from me, everything I do will collapse underneath me. Even the simple pleasures of computer gaming, (I enjoy strategy games, and without coffee I can’t think strategy) will fall apart.

Perhaps this is something about out modern society. We are so used to having these amenities that boost various aspects of us that we actually need them now to create. We all have our poisons. I shudder to think what would happen to half the design world if we were unable to get our daily coffee fix.

It doesn’t bear thinking about.

Even now just thinking about Coffee, despite the fact I have a cup next to me, makes me want more of the damn stuff. Perhaps I should write an Ode to Coffee. Yeah that sounds like a brilliant idea.

An Ode to Coffee

    honestly, i can’t help but wonder…what kind of coffee are you addicted too? Like starbucks, or a certain brand, or just regular black coffee?

      The fun thing is, is that I am just addicted to Coffee. I am quite the connoisseur and vary in my tastes. I mean in regular life I mostly drink Instant, simply for ease, but my favourite blend are arabica grounds, that I put into my home made espresso maker. It keeps me going. I actually keep a chart in my kitchen with perfect blend mixes, and I also keep a large recipe book full of different ways to make good coffee.

  2. You are not the only writer or worker who uses coffee as a power source. I think that is the new normal.

    • Dave says:

      It seems to be in the Western World certainly. I know a fair number of people who need a cup in the morning just to get the old brain going.

  3. I stop to dink alcohol, stop to smoke cigarrete, BUT I
    WOULDN´T STOP DRINK COFFE. Do you know this site: I like the ode to coffe!!!
