Yea not a cup but a mug hahaha I drank maybe 3-4 times of coffee daily, is this addiction or what? or just craving for coffee? Do you guys drink coffee as much as I do? Are you guys addicted to it? ahhhh what can we get from coffee anyway?

the only way to know i guess is if you try to not drink coffee for a day or two and see how you react.

Nice idea. To know or not if we get addicted to it simply decrease the number of intakes. But even if we get addicted to it we can overcome it since it just a drink.(^^)

Well, the good news my friend, is that coffee is said to be an anti-oxidant. Then, two cups or more of it is good for our liver. But too much of it, could really not make you go to sleep early when you want to.

Just don't overdo your drinking of coffee though. It might not be good for the health anymore, and for sure you will have a hard time sleeping easily.

Before I get here just now I have a cup of coffee and it was quiet a while since I have my last coffee- I can't remember as I am not a fan of coffee. Simply said actually I hate coffee as it will make my stomach feel uncomfortable. But tonight I just want to have a cup of it as I miss the taste. Yeah, I am start to feel unease, but not till make me feel want to go to the toilet, so I think it is still fine~(^^)Three to four times of coffee daily??? Oh, I prefer to drink plain water for it~ I can't do that...Mugs of them..that is a lot!!!! Have it just once or twice daily is fine and just using cup don't use mug my friend~

I remember my first and last time I have Mcdonald's Arabica coffee. The coffee was so strong and once I have a sipped it, it made me went to toilet and it gave my stomach a lot of pain~ I don't dare to buy nor drink that coffee anymore. Just now I just have instant coffee like Nescafe but just a little~ I don't want to get addicted or make my tummy feel used to it..They said the hot drinks serves better but my lidah can't have it at all. It dislike hot foods or drinks~(^^)

Hi there kyle2krystel!!! Well I actually grew up in a household that always have coffee in the kitchen.For our family it is a necessity coz our days are incomplete without especially during rainy days.I love coffee but when I discovered that it can darken your lips and can have bad effects on your teeth I decided to lower my intake of coffee.Although it has it's benefits like being an antioxidant I am still trying to control myself and I only drink one cup of coffee now per day.

Really?? I think I should definitely lessen my coffee intake. It's just so hard to have that dark teeth..and it's too expensive to fix that up. And with dark lips, I know it can be covered by a lipstick but how about if you are at home..and all natural, you couldn't really hide it. Anyways, it's my first time to hear about that...all I know is the good effects and that is an anti-oxidant (as you mentioned). I highly appreciate the knowledge you have given to me...^^

I also love coffee..most especially if I am on a night duty. I tend to drink a cup of it to help me stay awake for the entire night. But because of my kidney problems, I am lessening it. They say that it doesn't harm us...but I am just trying to avoid it because I always heard that it's contents is not a good one and would harm my kidneys even more. Anyways, it seems that you are addicted..or you are just so used to drinking coffee like that many times of the day. I have heard a lot of people who can't live without it...some have it's bad cause to them like palpitation and nervousness... Ice coffee is the best most especially if the weather is cold. But most of the time, I drink hot coffee. ^^'' Have a nice day...

It seems that most of us really like coffee so much...and who couldn't resist the great taste of it. I fully understand because I can relate. I just had my cup of coffee last night since I was on a night shift duty. I just came home from work and still not sleepy...I think it's because of the coffee...^^ Gotta love coffee...but we also need to be conscious of our health. ^^

I drink coffee four tim es a day and anm 85 and not senile nor do I have Alzheimer disease. a study was done of elderly women who drank 3 to 4 cups a day and elderly women who did not drink coffee or just one cup. They concluded that the women who drank 3 or 4 cups of coffee a day had 70 percent less chance of becoming senile or getting Alzheimer disease.So I figure I can drink my coffee and know I am getting my brain power intact. lol lol

Reading your post makes me want to fix myself a cup of coffee too! I have always liked drinking coffee but because of my gerd, I need to minimize it. Since I work night shift, coffee really helps me stay awake. Before my gerd, I also drank at least 3 times of coffee a day. You are right, it is so addicting! Now instead of coffee I just drink tea with creamer on it. It tastes like naicha which is really really good. Oh, add sugar too!

If I have a good tasting and warm coffee on hand, maybe I can gulp around 3 to 5 mugs every day because my coffee are usually good for the health and keeps me up and energetic and so addicting that I would crave for more...but of course I have to know how to limit myself because it is always bad to get too much.

Yea too much is bad nothing is bad too haha so maybe moderate what coffee do you drink? Why your coffee is good? What's on it? Maybe I can try some of those

Hi! drinking coffee is good because of it's anti oxidant. But so much coffee is not good you must balance your appetite. Addiction start at that level. So, try to control yourself by eating fruits or any healthy foods.

I'm not a coffee drinker but I don't think it matters how much you drink. If you like it go for it, I don't see what harm it can do. I just know it keeps people up sometimes if they drink to much but can never be to addicted to coffee.

I am not much addicted to coffee myself though. But I do need coffee sometimes. Especially today. I felt a bit dizzy and sleepy this very morning, and my head keep on nodding down, I guess that I didn't get enough sleep from last night then. Gosh, too bad, my break time was over, and I didn't get enough coffee myself. I guess next time I should drink more to help me awake.
