Do you drink coffee because you like the taste of it; or because you need it?

I was wondering if you guys drink coffee just because you like the taste of it, to calm you down if you have ADHD, or because you need it for energy or other reasons? I generally drink it because I like the taste of it and to calm me down because I have ADHD. Tell me what you guys think.

Usually i drink it because i like the taste, and yes, i think it does calm me down, but i have not been diagnosed with ADHD. Can you tell us more about how coffee helps with ADHD?

Well, mostly because of the taste, which I think is divine, but sometimes, especially in the morning, I kind of feel like I really need it too. But I am pretty sure I am just imagining that, I would probably be perfectly fine without it as well! But why try, when it tastes so good and all?

Hi, BooperGrandson. Welcome to myLot! I drink coffee because I love the taste of it. And I also drink it to gain some energy when I feel restless during the day time. I did not know that coffee could keep you calm. You must be drink the caffeine free kind??

Hey BooperGrandson! I love coffee and i don't think i can live without it!I drink it because i like the taste. Some times if i need to pull an allnight-er i would drink coffee to give me energy but those situations are rare now. How do you like drinking your coffee?I prefer it black with a lot of sugar or when i need something softer i make myself a cappuccino! Happy mylotting

I drink coffee because it helps me keeps awake in the office. It also keeps my mind active and makes me concentrate more on my work.
