How many of you here are coffee addicts ? Just like to find out how many of us here in mylot are coffee addicts. I myself is a real coffee addict as I used to drink like 4 - 5 cups of coffee in a day. but, knowing that it's not that good for health, I have reduced to only 2 - 3 cups of coffee nowadays. I would usually have headaches in the afternoon if i do not start my morning with a cup of hot coffee. How about you ? Are you a coffee addict too ?

i like tea more than coffee. as you know drink too much coffee is not good for you health. i usually drink tea instead of coffee. i think you should reduce to 1-2 cups of coffee. health is important than everything. ^-^

Thanks for the kind advise. I will try reducing my coffee intake and probably I can go for teas as an alternative too.

I do agree that tea may be better for you, but coffee has such a satisying effect!

Coffee is very nice, but personally I love tea. I have been told that tea is bad for your teeth, but I do really enjoy drinking it, and it is healthier than coffee.

If I had my choice, I would drink coffee all day long! I drink about 5-6 cups a day, if you want to call that addicted. (My husband sure does!). When I just don't want anymore caffeine, I switch to hot herbal teas.. Yum.

My Husband drinks 10-15 cups of coffee a day, and if we run out of coffee for a day or so, he's falling asleep all the time. I do worry about him, but don't want to push him because after years of smoking, he gave up a year ago and never looked back,so the coffee is the next step, for his good health

WOW ! Then you better advise him to cut down on the coffee before it cuts in to your husband. This must be super duper addicted.

Hmmm ... i don't really know if it does affect our growth. but, i think it should not. Probably it will affect our health.

Oh my God, coffee for me is my energy battery. Without it, i feel so lazy and tired at work. I go for 4 cups a day, until my doctor advice me to cut it to 1 or 2 only. I tried cutting it, without coffee at all, but he also said that its not healthy if u cut it immediately. I am drinkin 1 cup a day now, and decafee when i need one again. I love my coffee and i am not plannin to cut it forever. Happy mylotting!!!

I guess we all better cut on our coffee. In fact now what i do is that i would make a cup of coffee and drink only half of it. So, i can drink 4 times a day and only makes up to be 2 cups. Ha ha

As far as regular coffee goes, I'm a casual drinker. If someone else offers me a cup (after making a pot themselves), I'll more than likely take them up on the offer. However, if we are speaking in terms of lattes/cappuccinos, I'm most definitely addicted. I'd be stopping at Starbucks 3 times a day if my pocketbook allowed it.

I used to drink lots of coffee before but when my health condition became worse, i stopped and had water and tea instead... Drinking tea has lots of benefits.. - tea has antioxidants - may lessen the risk of heart attack - protects your bones - protects against cancer - boosts immune system - amplifies metabolism

I guess both tea and coffee has caffaine too and they are both just as bad if we drink them too much.

I take one cup of coffee in the morning. I remember one of my former boss was a coffee addict, who drinks only coffee. And we have another expatriate going even farther. He takes coffee during the day to replace meals. It is said that too much coffee is actually no good to health, for its content of caffein. Though caffeine is recognized globally as having many positive effects on the human organism, it is also known for rising blood pressure and affecting the heart beatings. There are certain precautions that need to be taken and they are mainly related to the increased usance of coffee and other caffeine-based products.

I would say that coffee replacing meals is really bad. It can gives you gastric and makes your body hay-wire. Ha Ha ... luckily i am not as bad as that expatraite you talked about.

Yeah I am a coffee addict too. I can't do without coffee especially in the morning. I would have around 3-4 cups in a day. But now I have realised the health hazard of having so much of coffee especially from the coffee machine is not good. We have coffee machine at our work place, so I would have a coffee frequently.I have realised too much of sweetner and caffeine is bad,so now I have 1 cup in the morning and 1 in the evening.

It's worse when there is a coffee machine in the office. I used to have coffee machine in where i used to work and I just kept going there all the time.

definitely I am. At least one coffee in the morning, sometimes 2 cups when it's raining. Can't imagine a world without coffee. Another "must have" cup of coffee after lunch, else not able to work productively. If having stressed, best remedy is coffee and chocolate (fruit and nuts chocolate). Love to drink tea, especially Chinese tea, but still, coffee is a MUST!

Coffee when it's raining ....... it's just so lovely and superb. I would really love a hot cup of coffee when it is raining heavily and i can stay home cuddle in my bed and enjoy my coffee while i work on my notebook.

I try not to drink coffee whenever necessary. Usually, I don't need any coffee at the beginning of week. But in Thursday and Friday, when I am about using up my energy, I cannot avoid coffee, but still, I drink at most 1 cup of coffee a day as I am afraid of its bad effect - increased bug pressure, depress...

At least you go by the week for coffee. Unlike me that I go by the day or sometimes by the hour. I know it will be bad effects, and that is why i am now trying to reduce my coffee intake.

I really don't know whether I will call myself as a coffee addict but more or less, I'm not. xD Anyway, I only drink coffee when necessary. Like staying up all night trying to finish my assignments, projects, etc. But sometimes my tongue just wants to taste some coffee. Often times, I restrain myself from taking one because its one of the stuffs that my doctor told me not to take. Maybe I'm just to thick-headed to follow what the doctor have told me and still continues drinking coffee. :P
