This report could be serious news for church workers, many of whom seem to be addicted to caffeine.  A report shows that people who drink seven or more cups of instant coffee a day are three times more likely to experience hallucinations than people who drank just one cup:

A Durham University team questioned 200 students about their caffeine intake, the journal Personality and Individual Differences reported. However, academics say the findings do not prove a “causal link”.

They also stress that experiencing hallucinations is not a definite sign of mental illness and that about 3% of people regularly hear voices. “This is the first step toward looking at the wider factors associated with hallucinations,” said psychology PhD student Simon Jones, who led the study.

Are you a youth worker addicted to coffee?  Does this challenge it?  If not, how do you cope with the long hours and the overnighters?
