    Good coffee is better then meth. That's why I like it and that's why I stopped doing meth.

    What are your thoughts on coffee??? :confused: :confused: :eek:

    I am the one of six people in seattle, wa. that does not drink coffee.

    in the late eighties/early nineties, espresso stands brought on a weird northwest pride in drinking coffee that turned into coffee chains soliciting an addiction bearing an uncanny resemblance toward that of the highly debated tobacco situation. I admit, for a while I fell for it, but after an excruciating cold turkey ordeal that made herion withdrawal look like indigestion, i was free from the black monkey with sugar and frothy milk and whipped cream that had been clinging to my back for so long.

    Now, I won't touch the stuff. Coffee makes me ill. Caffeinated products such as carbonated soda, even crap like red bull, is fine, but my body developed a defense mechanism against the poison that is coffee.

    Now its simply a point of humor to see millions of worker drones dropping a hundred bucks a week at starbucks (the microsoft of the sweetened drink industry) to get their "grande latte enemas".

    Now, you ask, what do i do to rouse myself in the morning? Nope, not meth, not even coke. I smoke a bowl. Smoking just one bowl of good sensimilla in the morning guarantees that i don't even know what's going on around me until like 11. I still operate to a certain degree, but when i come to around lunch time, i just don't remember.

    Coffee aint got nuthin on that.

    Since it's usually my only source I guess I'm being pickly when I take my drugs in an alternate form, usually some form of soda - diet if I'm on a massive binge, no need to get fat while consuming drugs. ;)

    I love coffee also, became a habit. Its also physically addictive, tried to stop at least once on the reccomendation of my doctor. Wanted to get off quickly, ended up with headaches. The headache was the kind that kept me in bed. When I took it slow, no problem. The reason that my doctor suggested stopping coffee was to decrease anxiety. Back on coffee and find no change with anxiety or sleeping. My mother told me that the idea that coffee will keep you awake is all in your head. So to this day I can drink coffee in the evening and still sleep.

    Never took illegal drugs! Soda is my other vice.

    My coffee favorite is Starbucks.

    Coffee is better than most other forms of potable drugs.....I don't like Starbuck's though, although the Frappuccinos are nice in the summer. There is a local coffee house that roasts its own here in town - much tastier.

    I only drink in the morning and usually not more than 16 oz.

    The Buzz on Decaf
    If you have high blood pressure, you may want to steer clear of both decaf and regular coffee.
    In a recent study, occasional coffee drinkers who drank a triple espresso experienced an increase in blood pressure and nervous system activity regardless of whether or not the drink contained caffeine. Coffee may contain substances, other than caffeine, that cause cardiovascular reactivity.

    RealAge Benefit: Keeping your blood pressure at 115/76 mm Hg can make your RealAge as much as 12 years younger.

    For most individuals, health experts believe that consuming moderate amounts of coffee, such as one or two cups per day, is probably not harmful. However, people with high blood pressure may be particularly susceptible to the cardiovascular effects of coffee. Habitual coffee drinkers who do not have high blood pressure may not exhibit the same cardiovascular response to coffee as non-coffee drinkers exhibit. Typically, habitual coffee drinkers have a smaller nervous system response to drinking coffee.

    oh, how i do love the java bean and dancing with the black monkey.

    why all the negativity about addictions?

    Some addictions are okay, to a point. I think if you don't function well without that first cup, that it is kind of bad, but not life threatning. However if your trippin' out on meth everyday, you've got some problems.

    In the shadow of the Space Needle.
    My name is SPG, and I am a caffeinator. I drink a big cup everyday because I need to. I quit for a year, and found that I could wake up earlier, with more energy, than when I was on coffee. You see the grogginess in the morning was from caffeine withdrawals.
    I'm back on the coffee now though, living in Seattle it's illegal to not drink coffee, let alone preach it's evils. For any of you who have to drive long distances in the night my secret to several land speed records (two still standing) is don't eat, then drink a red bull and 1 liter Mountain Dew at the same time. You will be wired awake and not too jittery (and having to constantly piss) like on too much coffee.
    I wouldn't recommend it everyday though, there's rumors that RedBull bonds the fatty cells inside the blood vessels in your brain making you much more susceptible to strokes.
