  • I need two. One in the morning and one after dinner. It makes me feel relaxed and to function also.

    • I love having one cup at around 830pm sometimes to relax me. Nice to see I'm not the only who uses coffee for relaxation.

  • I drink a cup of coffee in the morning and then drink a Red Bull gradually throughout the day, starting a few hours after the coffee. Coffee doesn't effect me much, I just like the taste.

    • Sorry I'm not trying to argue with you and you're right I shouldn't assume what you like to drink. I don't have a problem if you don't like coffee either. And I also have anxiety and insomnia. I'm mostly just trying to say it probably does have an effect on you and you just aren't noticing it... that's not to say you have to like it or anything.

    • @frozenhorizon I'm 26, I've drunk enough of the stuff in my life to know it has no affect on me. The same as all drugs have a higher or lower affect on certain people.

  • nothing can make me function properly. not even coffee.

    • Too much caffeine maybe? Do you drink other caffeine heavy drinks?

    • Not really but I don't get a headache from energy drinks.
      My dad had this too when he was younger. He sometimes even got migraine from drinking coffee.

    • Pretty crazy. That would be enough to keep me away from coffee

  • Two usually. Or one Venti from Starbucks as a treat.

    • 4 to start? Damn. Do you drink more throughout the day or is 4 your max?

    • ... yes, coffee = my awakener + false energy. I do drink up to 8 cups but am super racy and VERY hard to be around then, especially if I am annoyed.

    • Geez that's a ton of coffee. I see lots of trips to the bathroom in your future.

  • I don't need coffee to be functional. I just drink every once in awhile for the taste.

  • I usually drink two, but I'm not really dependent on coffee. I just tend to be a bit sleepy if I don't drink any, besides that I can function properly.

    • I mostly just drink it because it tastes good. That "drinking coffee to wake up" thing strikes me as a placebo more than an actual cause and effect.

    • Definitely agree, just wanted to see some different takes on the matter.

  • I dont drink coffee and if I did, only 1 cup would be enough.
    However lately I haven't had much sleep so I had to drink some the other day, once I go back to normal I won't even look at coffee.

  • I don't drink coffee. If I do have something caffeinated it will be a caffeine pill which is safer.

    0|0

    • Why do you think it is safer?

    • Because it is just pure caffeine and some lactose to cover the pill. Coffee is covered in random amounts of chemicals when it gets shipped to the US, then it is fermented and every coffee company adds their own preservatives to it. Not to mention if you get it at a coffee shop where the employees dirty the coffee even more.
      I'm only intaking 1 ingredient. By drinking coffee you're ingesting a ton of ingredients. Like the difference between butter and margarine.
