Tea? Coffee? Something else, maybe?

Personally I prefer tea over coffee - unless its a good restaurant cup of cappuccino in which case the coffee wins every time. When I'm at my keyboard I will usually drink a carbonated drink (we call them 'fizzy drinks' in the UK) often mixed with beer but never more than one - my keyboard skills are dodgy enough without me being intoxicated! My wife drinks almost nothing but coffee, black, no sugar, something I can't stand but then I have a very sweet tooth. My treat to myself when I get up early for work is to sit down, watch the TV morning news and sip my cup of hot, sweet tea before going to work. I'm guessing most of you will prefer coffee - am I correct?

@Platespinner I used to read. I learned to read a news magazine and not a page turner novel. I guess I should try that habit again. Sometimes turning on the TV to a show I know like Frasier with the volume low will put me back to sleep and sometimes that doesn't work. Pretty bad when I fall asleep at 6 and have to get up at 6:30. Luckily going to the living room and turning on the tv doesn't bother my husband.

I have never liked coffee, and have managed my entire life without it, so I see no reason to start now. I'm a Southern girl, which means the tea is iced and sweet. We don't have "fizzy drinks", we have Cokes. Not soft drinks, never ever pop, not soda. Cokes, plural, is the generic term for any carbonated drink of any brand, although we do tend to favor the hometown Coca-Cola brand.

I used to drink coffee except during the winter months when I'd keep my cup filled with hot tea and a bit of sugar substitute. I used to drink coffee mostly when it was warmer to help me stay awake working two jobs, but this last summer, for some reason I got out of the habit and now I don't drink as much coffee any more. I do keep some flavored creamer in the fridge just in case I get an urge to make a cup, but that urge is less and less these days.
