Tuesday Writing Prompt

It’s nearly lunchtime and it’s a day and a half now since the office ran out of coffee. That is just plain inhuman. The irritation level within my team is steadily increasing and a few are thinking of taking up smoking to off set the caffeine withdraws. Addiction is a funny thing.

About a year ago, my doctor told me to drop coffee to help stabilise my simmering stomach ulcer. My ever-helpful colleagues brought in herbal tea and hot chocolate to keep me away from the cafetiere in the kitchen. However, withdraws got the better of me and within a week, my mood could be compared to that of a rabid squirrel that just got back to his tree a week before winter to find his nuts stolen.

Today’s Prompt: Addiction

Usual rules, under 1,000 words.
