If I am feeling especially, nervous, why do I drink more coffee as a coping mechanism? In other words, I feel myself getting stressed and then drink coffee in order to rise to the occasion. Logically, I should not do this, yet I do. I also do other kinds of stress-inducing activities in order to displace the object of my stress onto something else. For example, I will do a sudoku puzzle or being to worry about a trivial thing. Is this a form of OCD, maybe?
