Guilty as charged. Cup of joe in the morning with breakfast. Will usually have some form of Vitamin C after lunch to uhhh...help with digestion.

Used to drink that french vanilla crap, somehow. Then I migrated to two sugar + two cream, now I don't know how I was able to drink that. I will drink coffee with just a tiny bit of cream and that's it. Occasionally I'll drink it black.

Some days I don't have any... doesn't really matter. Definitely don't "need" it. It is a good beverage though.

"for" work? no... but I do drink coffee at work.

I usually have a strong cup of coffee in the morning while I'm settling in for the day, and when I need my late-afternoon sugar rush, I'll have a lighter cup and some kind of sweet.

I drink coffee everyday, work or not. I go to bed at night mildly enthused for my next day's coffee. That, and hate keep me alive :^D

This is pretty much me. Just the thought of my morning coffee puts a smile on my face. Don't drink it for work, but because I want to. every.day.

Drink coffee almost every weekend, and occassionally during the week if I am dragging. Had some this morning! Usually two cups max, with cream OR sugar.

2 cups of strong black tea plus a little milk and brown baker's sugar is my morning standby. After lunch, I'll have a cup of oolong tea and then reinfuse the leaves a few times before 5 pm. Occasionally, I'll have coffee in the morning, instead.

I've never had even a sip of coffee and I get through my days just fine.

Same here. Just the smell of coffee makes me want to vomit.

Once in a while I will have a Coke Zero Vanilla and if I workout in the morning I have a Jack'd, which will last until mid-afternoon.

Used to drink about 2 or 3 cups a day at work. Stopped cold turkey for about 6 months. Started drinking again and now I drink 1 cup a day.

Drink? No.
Tablets? Yes.

More portable, stores easily, and the dosage is fairly adjustable by breaking apart the tablets.

I love coffee, usually drink 24oz of black strong coffee at work, various different brews, sometimes Dunkin or Harbucks, sometimes World Market, sometimes 8 Oclock.... as long as it's black. I tend to favor Sumatra beans with a medium roast, but I'll drink pure fvcking robusto without too much complaint. (I like bitter things)

Also, generally don't drink pop, I simply just love coffee as it's so damn tasty.

People still play that game?

No coffee for me...though I'll grab an occasional vitamin water with taurine if I really need a boost. I love coffee, but caffeine gives me anxiety.

quakelive.com , that is

working in restaurants kind of did it for me, with the espresso machine sitting there, defenceless, and me wanting all the powah i can grab :/

Ginseng, the good stuff not the cheap crap.
Unfortunately, I'm immune to caffeine. Heck, I have a cup almost every night before going to bed.

I like my coffee addiction, it has had nothing but positive effects honestly. I maintain the same 2cups/day and refuse to go higher. I sometimes have 3cups/day for when I might need to be more alert, a presentation/exam/whatever.

It helps my stomach digest better, don't know why. It helps me wake up at the same time everyday, 2cups/day is overall beneficial to your health AFAIK with regards to blood sugar/blood pressure that type of thing. 4cups/day is when it starts to have more bad than good effects.

A starbucks venti is like 450mg = 4.5cups of coffee Alot of people I think do like 2 cups 6 cups 7 cups 2 cups -> terrible headache and then curse caffeine because they actually have no idea how much they are drinking.

Those 24oz coffees = 4.5cups. If you chug it and see stars you've had too much caffeine lol.
