We all love a hot up of coffee every day to get you going. I know I drink several cups a morning which sometimes add up to 4 or 5 cups. Do you depend on coffee in the morning to get you going? And if so, how many cups do you drink a day?

Hi Kareng. I need my coffee in the morning to wake up and to start the day. I can only have two cups however, since my cancer doctor says it can cause prostate cancer. I guess coffee is a mixed blessing i say where drinking coffee can help prevent alzhemer's and some forms of cancer.

That's true. It's one of those things that they say is good for you in moderation, then next year it is bad, and the following year it is good for you again. I think we have to be careful with everything and keep our focus on "moderation" in lots of things!

I only cut down to 1-2 cup now since I think too much is not good for health. I used to drink 3-4 cups but managed to cut it down recently.

Tea is much better for you. I can't drink hot tea early in the mornings, it makes me sick.

I only take one. I have a graveyard shift at work and so I need lots of them when I was just starting but I got used to it so I’m content with one mug. Beside I’m having a hard time sleeping after work. I usually take it during my first break to wake me up a little.

Awesome. It's hard adjusting to upside down shifts, isn't it? My husband worked shift work for many years. It was always crazy!

One cup of coffee will be good for me enough. As coffee is not the most common drink for us. Besides, I am afraid I will be sleepless at night because of the coffee. I love China

I LOVE the first cup of coffee in the morning. I tend to drink about three cups each morning. But with winter here I do make a cup in the afternoon every once in a while too. Never have been one to drink it all day as it really makes me shake. If I do not have a cup of coffee in the morning I get the most awful headache.So I guess you could say I depend on coffee each day but not to get me going. I am a morning person anyways.

I don't get headaches if I don't have it but I do depend on it because I'm not a morning person and this helps me get going. LOL.

Hi Kareng, I am not taking much coffee, only once or twice in a week. I prefer to take tea in the morning and one cup in the evening also. I like coffee especially in winter it is good to take coffee. It is good for my health also because my BP is low so coffee is good for that (lol). But drinking several cups of coffee, I think is not recommendable. Enjoy your day, good luck and thanks for adding me in your friend's list.

Cool! Yea, research on coffee seems to go back and forth. One year it is bad for you and then the next year they say 2-3 cups is not harmful. Go figure!

I only drink about 2 cups of coffee in the mornings. That is all I need to get me going for the day. But then in the evening I drink another two cups, after dinner. Or sometimes I will have tea instead. I am having a cup of herbal tea right now, as a matter of fact. But I like my coffee and since this morning is a weekend and I didn't have to go to work, I drank 4 cups of coffee this morning. I only have a 4 cup coffee maker so that I can't drink too much without realizing it. I know my mom has a 12 cup coffee maker and she doesn't stop drinking it till it is gone and she doesn't even realize how much she actually drank. So I use just a small pot and sometimes I may make a second pot, but not till later in the day, if I drink it all. If I don't drink it all, I will just warm it up in the microwave in the evening. Alrighty then, talk to you later my friend, Have a good mylotting day, Chris

I seem to have stopped drinking coffee so much lately. Being English, I always have a cup of tea with my breakfast rather than coffee, plus a small glass of juice. The rest of the day, I'll drink green tea or ordinary tea, English style. Coffee is a rare treat for me these days. I hadn't even thought about it, but now I do, I realise that I don't drink it very much. If I have one cup a day, it's a miracle! lol. Brightest Blessings.

Hello kareng! I am a heavy coffee drinker. I really do not depend on coffee to get me going but it sure does help from time to time. I drink around 2 cups of coffee before I leave for work. Then another cup during my breaks at work. When it gets cold late in the afternoon, I would have another cup or two. Then I get to have another cup after dinner. Oh well, I just can't help it. LOL!

I used to do two pots a day but had to cut out almost all of the caffeine I was consuming. I still make a pot of decaf but the taste just isn't there. I am still trying to find a decaf that has a good taste but haven't found any that even come close. There are times when I can resist a Venti Mocha Frappuchino from Starbucks but at $4.50 a piece, they are a once a month treat for me lol.

You would think that someone could come up with a good decaf! There are so many people who can't drink coffee because of the caffeine! I agree with you on Starbucks! I don't see how some people go there daily and some multiple times a day!

i don't drink it eveyday, just about 1 cup a week, maybe even 2 weeks. i'm not a coffee addict but whenever we go to starbucks, i order a drink which is coffee-based because i think it's less fattening,lol

I drink mine with just a dab of creamer and NO sugar! That really cuts the calories!

I know I depend on coffee. If I have my creamer and just a little bit of sugar then I can drink about a good 3-5 cups in the morning. I sometimes like to drink coffee during the day just for the extra boost of energy. But if I don't have the stuff I like in my coffee I always try to drink pop or eat chocolate for the caffeine. I fell that now days caffeine is a must. Although I know its not the healthiest for you but you gotta do what you gotta do. Happy Mylotting

I drink coffee all day long, as a matter of fact, I have a cup with me now and it is almost 11:20.. I am trying to make it to the New Year but not sure if I am going to or not.. I do drink about 2 pots of coffee while at home but we also go out and have coffee during the day.. We normally keep a cup with us at all times.. It is decaf unless we are drinking while out at a restaurant or hanging at our favorite corner store, then we drink the real stuff.. Happy New Year!!!!

Wow, that sure is a lot of coffee! What kind of decaf do you drink? I've never found one that really tastes good!
• United States

We use either Folgers or the Food City store brand, it is really good.. Decaf is the reason that we can drink so much of it and both of us like the taste of coffee, so we do more than we should most days..
