Coffee Is Good For You

Coffee addicts rejoice! A new study shows the coffee, either caffeinated or decaffeinated, may actually help extend the lives of people who drink it. This is good news for cartoonists, since our great ideas are fueled by bottomless cups of joe!

I still think my doctor is right when he told me not to drink coffee.Coffee does give me the jitters and raise havoc on my calm demeanor. I have tried to analyze its effect on me and have come to this conclusion- that my body do not need it. Very basic stuff, Those who require it use it for motivation that require the "get me upper our of bed to start the day. Others do not use it for that purpose. The doc knows our body chemistry better.

i used to drink a half-gallon or so between 7:30 AM & 2 or 2:30 PM. read somewhere that eliminating caffeine would reduce tinnitus (which i have), so i did. didn't work. now i have 1-2 cups a day & feel really good about it.
bottom line: if you like it & it doesn't have bad side effects; have at it. if you don't like it and or it bothers you, don't bother. simple.

One day Americans will learn to drink real coffee . Not the over boiled weak stuff generally available. Talk to the Italians for the real stuff!

ok go with your doc, what ever is best for you . I like it my self but i do drink decaf,

Used to have 2 small cups each day, and 2 small cups of tea. That was regular. Miss one cup in the morning and my eyes would blur over, and not get focussed until the coffee was had. Missing the tea or coffee the whole day would mean splitting headaches that would not go away even with Paracetamol (once the headache begins). Missed coffee all day one day (without thinking about it); headache hit by 9 pm…only then realised what had happened; by 10 pm began throwing up continuously, didn't stop until the next day noon, when I was finally taken to hospital and given a a shot.

Since then gave up many times and went back to it many times. Each time I give up, I take Paracetamol as a preventative (for the headaches) and this goes on for a few days until I am weaned. Usually return to coffee out of sheer boredom at work or after an illness. Another way to break from it would be to sleep right through. Almost three days of continuous sleep except for meal breaks or other short breaks (such as tv watching) and back to bed again. Then one would start to wean.

(Continuing from above)
I would say: it's an addictive substance. Recognise an addiction when you see one. Face the facts. Anything that can do this to you can't be "good" for you. Right now I've been off it for slightly over two weeks. This time I started with a bit of sleep, saw my chance and substituted Pepsi for coffee (it has some caffeine, I think, and lots of sugar, to keep you going) and went with Pepsi for about 3 days, then shifted to different kinds of fruit juices. I plan to move to just water soon, with fruit juices only occasionally, not as a stand-in.

One day the haters will stop worrying what Americans are drinking, cease the condescending rubbish, shut their pie holes, and sip their bloody espresso (while feeling superior to all) in silence!

What yah think!?!?

By the way, Im American and like espresso and American style coffee. Im guessing that might screw up your world view but bugger you.

I usually dring a half-pot (two large mugs) each day befote noon. After noom I use cola for my additional caffine fix if I need it. If I don't, I have a non-caffinated soft drink.
