    ok...the smoker's thread got me thinking a bit here...

    I generally have a decent sized traveler's mug of coffee every morning...fairly strong (we Southerners love our coffee strong ;))

    I've found myself craving a good cup of coffee in the evening sometimes...but I don't drink it during the day...usually water...with an occasional diet coke for an extra kick...

    sometimes...usually when I stay away for a couple days...I'll get a headache...which is quickly fixed by a dose of caffeine...

    anyone else a coffee lover?

    I love coffee, not the caffene - but once a year, I take a week or two off of coffee and clean the system. The first couple of days are tough - head aches and such, but then I feel better.

    The best is after the coffee fast having your first cup.....ah!

    damn, not just the caffene would be a problem there - all that sugar? ouch! how long did it go on before you stopped?

    I don't know if I'm addicted to caffeine. I do drink pop, not coffee. However, it may not be the caffeine i'm addicted too. I can do Sprite and other caffeine free pop. If it's not the caffeine, then what is it that i'm addicted to?!

    WE AMERICANS ARE COFFEE ADDICTS! :D

    I will probably have java up to 4 or 6 cups a week, and I find it VERY hard to avoid coffee for a whole week. Here, avoiding coffee is a drug. :p

    all those energy drinks (red bull, etc) dont seem to have much effect on me.

    Probably 6 or 9 months... my partner doesn't understand how i'm not diabetic... i actually wound up losing weight in the process, i think i messed up my metabolism a bit :) Just one of the dangers of having a loving grandmother that lets you get away with murder... i must have eaten 100 lbs of betty crocker frosting...

    I used to drink about 6 cans of coke a day when I was 15 or 16 years old. I've cut down to a few a week now but I do drink a lot of coffee every day, 6 - 8 cups usually although half of those are usually decafenated coffee.

    I don't know if could go a few days without coffee or not

    It could be the carbonation...the bubbles.:) Makes the drink more interesting.

    Anyway, I used to drink quite a bit of pop (more for the sugar than the caffeine), but me going on a diet, and giving up pop for lent sorta pulled me away. I still drink pop occasionally, but it doesn't seem the same anymore. As for coffee...its the same with me as alcohol. One bad taste (it musta been a straight black coffee or something) ruined coffee for me. However, I do like the smell of coffee...:D
