Hi, my name is Phil and I am a caffeine addict! There I said it. Well, I guess the name of the website gives it away. When I wake up and pour that coffee, I love the feeling caffeine gives me. I feel energized, alert and ready to take on the day. Most days, that’s my experience.

I have struggled with anxiety in the past. It was at a point where I was losing sleep because I was worrying and obsessing about ridiculous things that, at the time, seemed very real.
