I have forbidden coffee but i do take now and then...ok more often than desirable coca-cola
And i use to be a British tea (black tea with a bit of milk) addict! But i had to redice to one cup to none now
Well im sure back at the UK I would need the tea times...

If I want to come off it I have to do it gradually, and just reduce the amount each day little by little or I get some killer migraines and headaches...plus I just feel like crap for several days afterward in general. Sluggish.

It's much easier just to have more caffeine...

FRIEND
I have one cup everyday in the morning. I have morning classes so I need coffee. Sometimes I do find myself getting a bit shaky as a result, so I don't drink a lot of it - one medium cup with two sugars and cream is enough.

If I don't have it then I feel really tired and I get a headache.. I'm definitely dependent on it.

What happens when you stop?

I began drinking coffee every day a few weeks ago. Stopped doing that a few days ago and I was SUPER tired... very tough to get back to normal... I've read it only takes 7 days, so I have my fingers crossed.

Me on caffeine:

My mind becomes an avant-garde video by a techno-freak film student with ADHD on stimulants. Plus my hands start shaking. In my worst experience, I couldn't even walk straight. It's torture.

I love love love tea and really enjoy coffee, but I simply cannot function after half a cup of coffee, so I avoid it like the plague unless I'm really really sleepy or it's really really early, in which case it doesn't affect me as much...strange. Decaf is my style.

I do take a very small cup of very good quality straight green tea or some Earl Gray every morning after yoga.

Coffee dramatically changes my personality..I go from calm, relaxed to jumping around manic. So I try only limit it for situations where I need added confidence, or when i'm genuinely exhausted.

I prefer to drink decaf, just because it's healthier and caffeine changes the coffee in a way I don't prefer, but I don't mind if I drink it occasionally.

Caffiene is my friend. In fact to correct an old bit of gossip about me, I'm really only in the industry to get at many different kinds of (not decaf) coffee.

(And yesterday I did post that I blew of H. Rhoda to go eat a slice of NY pizza.)

I'm actually surprised by how many people here aren't friends with caffeine; that's amazing. I, on the other hand, are pretty intimate with mr. caffeine.

You made me almost choke on my coffee when I read that! So funny!!

I'm a full scale Grade A coffee addict. I only drink properly brewed good quality coffee and ONLY take it black.

I HATE putting milk in hot drinks. I love milk in cereal but for some reason I hate in it hot drinks so if I were to drink tea I would drink it black, BUT that makes my stomach go crazy and makes me very nauseous. I'd say the last time I drank tea was about 8 years ago!

The only bad thing about black coffee? Stains your teeth.
