Sadly my doctor said i should not drink coffee to protect my blood pressure which is a pity as i like a really good ground coffee. Not sure if coffee has any medicinal qualities but i do like the pick me up it gives me when i sneak a cup at work!

It's good for you, up to four cups a day (or four cups-at-a-time I'm not exactly sure which). But it's bad for your teeth (if you don't 'wash your mouth out' afterward).

Coffee is fine. In fact, it has been shown to have numerous positive health benefits (see this article,http://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/update0406c.shtml , from Harvard for more on that). Where the problem comes in is all of the miscellaneous extras that some people add to coffee. Sugar, non-dairy creamers, etc. can carry some nasty health risks--especially when routinely consumed in large quantities.

i like the smell of coffee very much, but problem is with caffeine level, coffee and tea doesn't suit my health at all. Tea is okay up to some extent, if taken , at minimum level,but if i take coffee , immediately i can feel the change ,headache starts, this may be due to the caffeine level ,which high in coffee and shows the effect.

All these in moderation. Coffee has caffiene and can harden the arteries if taken too liberally. One to two cups a day can't hurt. I love a good cup with carmel flavored creamer in it. It is devine. How I could ever do without coffee completely is beyond me.

I used to drink 2 cups of coffee everyday, but now I am trying to wean myself. I just don't like the fact that I am becoming too dependent on it for energy and after a couple of hours, and the caffeine has waned, I feel so drained. So far, I can make it like 3 cups of coffee in a week. Why don't you try tea or hot chocolate as an alternative? Even hot milk if you're not lactose intolerant.
