Some people say that, they can't live without coffee. They start the day by drinking a cup of coffee. They said that, they can't think clearly without coffee. I my self, start drinking coffee, when I was in Junior High, untill now. Even when I got my headache after I got a long tripp or just because I keep thinking about something that bothering me. I always drink a cup of coffee. I helps me feel relax and ease my headache. Although my doctor not allow me to drink it to much, as i have stomache. Some people in my community say, that coffee is good, as long as we're not drinking too much. Even for kids, it will prevent them from getting heart attack. So what do you think about it.........

If it gets you charged up to face the ahead then why now have it. Some begin their day with tea, milk, coconut water,black tea, black coffee etc.etc. Its a matter of choice.But anything in excess can be dangerous.

As I would usually advise my friends, "too much of anything is not good". Thus, too much coffee is bad to our system. One way or the other it would show up as hyperacidity, nervous tremors, etc. A lot of people take coffee in the morning because they got used to it. It gives them the feeling that it's an energy or adrenaline booster. Some would even think that they could concentrate better (like what you mentioned) or even relax. For what it's worth (beneficial effects) to you, just remember that there are also disadvantages to watch out for. Welcome to myLot!

I think coffee is okay but flavored only thanx. I've never dealt well with just plain coffee. Ick. My parents are SO addicted to it, even with no caffein they drink it. My dad has a bad heart and had to cut back on caffein like 10 or more years ago no chocolate or whatever. Really sad. But still they drink it. I asked why whats the point to not wake up? They just said they were addicted! I love starbucks its great! I do like coffee why not wake up to something warm and good but with flavor! No thanx to just plain stuff.

stimulants are usually really bad for you in the morning. People do it to wake themselves up, but it eventually burns you out after a while.. I don't drink it in the morning, I usually have a cup of tea that comes to school with me, but it's decafe sometimes, sometimes it's not. It all adepends. But either way, it's usually unhealthy for you to start your day with any sort of stimulant

Coffee is an addiction buddy..just like smoking.Trust me, it is not doing you any good.You might feel a little charged up after drinking coffee, but after sometime you will actually end up feeling tired and dull.Try replacing coffee with tea or a warm glass og honey and lemon.This will work wonders in the long run.

I heard things that you heard too about the kids and coffee, and headache and coffee. But I don't understand the connection between headache and coffee. One thing is that I like coffee and people say that coffee is addictive. I'm afraid being addictive but I really enjoy light coffee (coffee + sugar + creamer) very much. Plus I think I need 2 large cups of coffee everyday. Of course too much of everything is not good. Therefore I try to stop taking coffee everyday. The question how much is sufficient for someone to take coffee if coffee is good for people?

Coffee is a good antioxidant and is good for you in moderate amounts. I myself have to drink two cups of coffe in the morning just to get going, although really I do not like the taste of coffee. I guess that I am addicted to it. I started drinking coffee years ago when I started working nights just to stay awake.

I love coffee but I drink it whenever I feel like drinking a cup of it. I could start my day even without drinking coffee.

coffee as my energy drink.it keeps me comfortable when i need to unwine.drinking too much coffee should be avoided because it has caffeine in it and it is dangerous to our health.2-3 cups a day is good.coffee is known in anti aging also.

I think yes, I love coffee, we need coffee to jump start our day. Coffee is also a good antioxidant that helps our body to get rid of the free radicals that destroys the cell, so let's have a cup of coffee everyday.

I am addicted to coffee. I must have my cup of coffee everyday. I tried drinking tea, and it did not work. I use to drink 4 cups of coffee, but I am now down to 1 cup per day.

I start my day with a cup of coffee but it is not like I have to. I know a lot of people who say there day does not begin until they have a cup of coffee. I do like coffee but I can drink it at anytime and not just in the mornings.

I always start the day with breakfast which includes a large cop of coffee. But during the rest of the day, I drink tea. I can't say that I need to have coffee to get going in the morning, but it helps :)
