I drink coffee maybe once or twice a month. My sister and bro-in-law bought me a Keurig for Christmas but I still haven't tried it out.

I go back and forth. I drank anywhere from 1-3 large cups a day for years, from high school to my thirties. Then I started getting massive, vomit-inducing migraines that would come on if I didn't get enough coffee,... or too much coffee... or got dehydrated... or got very stressed...

So I quit coffee and after the first week of being miserable I had more energy than ever. I felt absolutely fucking great.

I've now backslid a bit, because I missed the taste. So I'm going cold turkey again.

Between 5 and 10 cups a day.

I love how you're in I'm-Retired-And-Don't -Give-A-Fuck mode.

Had to quit. Because of the M.E. I was drinking silly amounts. Gave myself caffine psychosis on two occasions. The last time lasted a week so I'm down to lightly decafinated jasmine tea.
Kill me.
Just fucking kill me.

Depending on my goals for the day, I often drink 1 cup. Additional caffeine comes from other sources like tea or energy drinks.

Pretty much by the pot full. I don't add sugar, or make coffee into a dessert. No cake pieces, no whipped cream, none of that stuff.

Just straightforward drip coffee with (often lactose-free) skim or lowfat milk when I can. Sometimes I have pre-flavored kinds like french vanilla, cinnamon, or butterscotch. Or add a touch of sugar free torani (s'mores, french vanilla, toffee, whatever.) I also do the kojak style black no sweetener with french roast or unflavored decaf.

Don Francisco's is an inexpensive coffee line I like.

1 or 2 cups a day. If I get it from a coffee shop I'll get a latte. milk > water.

Sorry about your coffee issues; coffee should ease burdens never add to. :(

And yeah, i use caffeine in lieu of sports powders to hype up for my workouts and crap.

Your consumption level reminds me of my buddy who brews a pot of coffee in the morning... Then walks around the house drinking from it like it's a cup.

He'll go 24+ hours at a blackjack table which may be related.

Letters, if you're still in this dimension... Which coffee is best in life?

I can drink usually 3 to 4 cups of coffee daily if I'm out socialising.

Or I can literally sip on one cup an entire day.

At home, I'm addicted to those 3 in 1 sachets of instant coffee, sugar & whitener.

I do not drink coffee, or anything caffeinated

Unless it's mix in a liquor drink

I used to drink over a half gallon of coffee or caffeinated products a day.  Then my aorta exploded. Think one had something to do with the other?

Did you have endless rage, palpatations, hallucinations and paranoia as well?

Never really did, or needed to.

And now that I have full blown anxiety and I don't medicate to help deal with it, caffeine is not good for that.

The odd horrific hangover when I basically didn't sleep and need some energy, yeah I'll probably sip at a half cup of coffee over a few hours.

   No, but I did have withdrawal migraines on the weekends when I tapered off.
   It was explained to me in the hospital that caffine is a vaso-dilator, so if you drink it so often that the blood vessels in your brain are expanded all the time. When you cut back they shrink down to their normal size and it creates kind of a vaccume effect as the spaces created try to refill with cerebro-spinal fluid.
    God, I miss coffee.

That is interesting.
And yes. I miss coffee. I try to have a cup every month or so to see what happens. But the results aren't good.

I could never stand the taste of coffee, so I never did drink it. And then in my mid-20's, I swore off all caffeine that isn't, like, chocolate. Because fuck you... I'm not giving up chocolate.

But yeah... I don't drink alcohol or caffeine. So I mostly drink, like, Crystal Light mix packets in water or Sprite Zero. Good times.

It makes my recent seizure all the more infuriating. No alcohol, caffeine, drugs of any sort. Relatively healthy lifestyle except that I eat candy like a fucking toddler without supervision. So of course my body is just going to cave in on me anyway.

I also try to only drink low-calorie/diet stuff, as well. But I'm much less stringent on that. If my only choices are caffeine-free or diet, but not both, I'll drink the caffeine-free.

I usually drink 2-3 cups a day, and usually with just milk. For some reason, I can't drink coffee with sugar.
Title: Re: Do you drink coffe?
Post by: Whiskeyclone on April 29, 2017, 10:35:20 PM
I drink it, avg. 2 a day, give or take 1. Preferably with a smallish amount of sugar and milk. Every now and then I'll add cinammon or even sprinkle something like garam masala onto the unbrewed grounds, but 98% of the time it's just milk and sugar.
