I completely agree with your article on recovering alcoholics replacing alcohol with caffeine.  My husband is 4 months sober and drinks 2 monster's a day plus coffee.  He is easily agitated, literally cannot stop talking and argumentative.  I wish he could see what's going on.  He does have a lot of anxiety like you mentioned and takes klonipin for it, which helps - but the energy drinks cause more anxiety.  Thanks for your article.
