How many cups of coffee does it take to get you going in the morning? For me it is at least 2 normal cups. Then i have more through out the day....I think I may drink to much, but i need it to get me through the day...how about you?

I have a four cup coffee maker and finish that off before I go to work. It seems that barely gets me going anymore. I got a Starbucks gift card a while back and I've been nursing that along getting a cup on the way to work every now and then. That seems to do the trick for the morning. I get a Coke in the afternoon if I'm really dragging, but am trying to cut back on the sugar and caffeine.

I am doing that as well. I feel a bit bloated lately and thinking it is the amount of coffee I have been drinking. So I am cutting it out as well as the junky foods....I really want to get back in shape. Good luck to you.

I typically drink one to two cups in the morning and if I have any other coffee throughout the day it is decaf. I just dont want to drink more coffee than I can get over. The coffee bothers me and I might not be able to sleep at night if I drink too much. I hate not sleeping. It is a nightmare no pun intended.

I am a little addicted to coffee but don't drink it too much. I usually need at least one to one and a half cups per day to get me motivated. I don't do too well until I pick up that first cup. It is amazing how habit forming it can be! There are some people I have known who could drink it all day and seem to be alright. My anxiety couldn't handle more than say three or more cups of it daily. But I do enjoy the beverage and it is especially good in the morning with a snack.

I could have a cup in the morning. That's enough for me. My maximum for the day is just two cups, one in the morning and one in the afternoon when I go home. Have a nice day!

i stopped drinking coffee when i was 10.the reason,my teacher told me that it has nicotine,and nicotine can make your fingernails yellowish.Since then i never drank coffee in fear of having yellowish fingers(hahaha)..I am now working and i am still a non-coffee drinker,what keeps me going when everyone else resorts to coffee when they feel sleepy?hot water,i drink a lot of it,sometimes,i drink soda(which has also nicotine in it).

I always get up and get going in the morning. I turn the coffee pot on and work until it is ready. I drink the whole pot, most usually, while I am working. I drink another pot too if I feel the need to.
