Coffee addiction
« on: October 13, 2005, 04:27:22 AM »
What is it with everyone on here and there coffee addictions? Am I the only one who finds the stuff absolutely vile?!

Give me a nice cup of tea any day - must be because I'm British I guess...

Tony dear,

My daughter thinks as you do .... you're not alone in this world. I wish I wasn't 'addicted' to the stuff but I am and I admit it. I have tried dropping it for tea or something with less caffeine but it has not happened. I've gone cold turkey, I've cut back all the way to none on a gradual basis ... but as long as there is ONE person in this house (hubby) who refuses to not drink it .. there isn't a lot I can do about it. Heck I tried getting him to go to decaf and he won't so I'm stuck.

*Grins*

I guess being addicted to tea is just as bad (or anything with lots of caffeine in it) - and I used to be addicted to tea big time (as in if I didn't have a cup every hour or so I would start to get headaches of the sort that felt like a death metal band has put on a free concert inside your skull and everyone is invited).

Thankfully where I work doesn't have a kitchen to make real tea, and the chemical sludge that the drinks machine dispenses under the guise of being tea tends to eat through the plastic cup it comes in if its left for too long, so I've cut right back!

I go through stages where I drink tea non-stop and most is caffeine-free due to being herbal teas. But most of the time I need my coffee, usually during the winter and blah months of the year.

I prefer my caffeine to be carbonated, dark and not diet.

I can't stand coffee myself.  I'd have to be desperate to drink it (and I much prefer tea).

^.^ It comes and goes in waves, I alternate between coffee and tea. We swedes appearantly drink a lot of strong coffee, really surprised an american friend who was visiting, he assumed that the coffee would be weaker since we drink so much of it. And first question they asked when I started my current job was "Do you drink coffee? Good, itīs in the kitchen."

*rolls on the floor laughing.* When I'm at home, I drink tea. Lots of it. No coffee here, my nana hates it.

On the other hand, when I go out, I drink coffee. Don't necessarily like it though. tea is cheaper and tastes better.

You should listen to your nana - the lady most obviously has taste

*Can smell very strong coffee being made downstairs, feels very ill*

Mind you, my favourite caffeine delivery system is most definitely Dr Pepper... or Cherry Coke, but they seem to have stopped selling that again over here *Pouts*

I drink whatever I can drink. But most of the time it's either water or a soda.

That's odd. I still see Cherry Coke in Tescos and such.

::drinking a Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper::  Ahhhhh... The best of both Dr. Pepper and Cherry Coke, which are the only two carbonated beverages that I will drink.  Excellent taste Tony!

The tea god has almost no follower in me: pop is my life blood.  I've thrown back a two liter bottle at lunch on more occassions than I can count.

Been drinking coffee off and on for more than half my life, don't see any reason to change...lol.  1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar, no milk.  That's what I want to wake up in the morning.  After work, give me a nice cup of herbal tea, no caffeine.

I never liked coffee for some reason. I guess I share the same tastes of my mother. She didn't start liking it until twenty or so years ago. Just before I was born. I guess she was nervous or something. *snickers*
