Sorry LittleMel but I'm not really a coffee drinker and a cold shower would certainly wake me up but I prefer a nice cup of English style tea!

I love my coffee. But have to admit it doesn't do the trick. A shower perks me up more.

I find a nice shower gives me lots of energy to start the day. I only drink decaffinated coffee so it doesn't have much of an effect of waking me up, although breakfast usually helps.

Yes, it does wake me up. But I'm not a coffee person so I guess that's my only choice

i drink water firs thing in the morning. it clears my mind and i feel fresh. early morning shower is nto a good idea for me as i like to laze around before i start the day. coffee just makes me feel a bitter taste in my mouth and i dont prefer it

I find that a Diet Coke wakes me up more than anything. But if I were to choose between these two options, I'd choose a cold shower. At least I know a cold shower won't stain my teeth! : )

Oh yeah. It contains caffeine. I try just to drink a couple a week. I have migraines for so many reasons and a little caffeine can keep a migraine away.

I usually wake up bright and breezy anyway, but I do love my first cup of coffee when I get up - on my own, in peace and quiet, followed by a shower - then I'm set for the day! However, when I was working full-time I always hit the shower first, so I guess our habits change with our circumstances.

Me too I get more awake with cold water. Actually instead of coffee in the morning I drink cold juice it makes me more alert and it really wakes up my nerves. With coffee I feel more sleepy and I have it whenever barf theres this sour taste. Even with coffee I like it more cold.

I found out the same! The cold shower is more effective in really waking up every nerve in my body. The coffee only wakens my mind. But with a cold shower, the moment the water hits my skin, the nerves also seem to jump. Maybe, it has something to do with the change in temperature.

change of temperature LOL what a mild way to say it! it's like cold water hit you in the head - i'd say

Every morning when i get up i feel great with a cup of hot coffee. It is great to drink coffee. But it is good always to have a tea that is bed tea i suppose. What do you take when you wake up.

I take a shower or just wash my hair. I can't drink coffee, somehow it makes me dizzy rather than to wake me up

Definitely a big, hot cup of slightly sweet, creamy coffee.... yum! A cold shower would probably wake me up, but it wouldn't do anything good for my mood!

I love coffee but it's not effective for me. I can drink probably 3 cups of coffee and still feel sleepy. Nothing beats a cold shower in waking me up. I feel fresh and ready to go once I've taken a cold shower. Actually hot stuffs makes me feel more sleepy that's why coffee won't do the trick for me.
