might state the subtly obvious:

It has become the accepted, somewhat joked about, addiction.
Of course everyone has different reactions, but the article says --
Other effects of caffeine on the body includes; stomach irritation, interference with proper digestion and a constricting effects on blood vessels. Caffeinated drinks can also stimulate the stomach to excrete excessive acid, which may later aggravates ulcer.
