I'm sorry, but without coffee, I'm not a nice guy. Wait, I'm not a nice guy after coffee, just tolerable. W/O coffee I'm a grumpy old man who wants those damn kids off the lawn.

Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.

It maketh me to wake in green pastures: it leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.

It restoreth my buzz: it leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction, I will fear no Equal (tm): for thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.

Thou preparest a carafe before me in the prescence of Juan Valdez: thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.

Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the House of Maxwell forever.


I've seen that passed around for some time, but I enjoy it each time I read it.

How cruel of the admins.


I gave up coke by reducing consumption. "No more than three cans today, even if I think I want more." "No more than two cans." "One can today." "None today -- I'm not an addict and I don't need it." I'm back on it now, but I've proved I can quit, and I do stop sometimes.

I used to drink 1 cup a day. Then they put this fancy machine in the OR lounge, that instantly brews you a personal cup of coffee while you watch. None of this concentrate stuff, there's a neat French Press inside that does the brewing. Now I drink 3 to 4 cups per day.

You'll take my coffee out of my trembling, shaking hands.

Coffee to grain coffee? I found the transition from coffee to grain alcohol to be much more...intense.

I did give up coffee...by switching to quadruple espressos and iced americanos.
 
2005-05-31 11:03:15 PM  
pssst, Aqueduct_Pocket---an iced americano is just watered down espresso on ice. I.E. Iced regular coffee, pretty much. Just ask for an iced hammerhead instead: a shot of espresso, add ice, fill rest of cup with black coffee. mmmmmm hammerhead.

Give. up. coffee?
Give. up. coffee?
Why? In the name of Gawd, why?
Think of the coffee beans!

It would take an entire 120 cup commercial brewer to make it through that long and pointless article.

Your mom doesn't like Starbucks. Who the hell cares?

The article answers your question:

"Why give up coffee?"

/in disagreement however

I could give up coffee for my health, but it would ruin the sweet sweet taste of my all natural cigarettes (100% tobacco)!

I usually fill a quarter of my cup with dry coffee crystals. Then I use enough real brewed coffee to saturate the crystals into a syrupy muck. Then I pour in enough cold milk to fill the cup. I've got about 5 cups worth of caffeine in that one cup, and I drink that before I teach my classes. I'm so wired I can't see straight, but it sure entertains the kids. Then I burn out worse than bunk weed.

RTFA

those who actually have caffeine addictions and question why, for the love of god, they should ever consider going off it, those people probably didn't make it to that part of the article due to the effects of caffeine which are very similar to those of attention def... oh look, a pigeon!

/didn't make it to the end, case in point. so why should i give up this magical bean juice?

The writer lost all credibility when he/she expressed an affinity for Starbucks coffee.

No wonder you quit drinking joe, you bed-wetter.

My question: How do you drink coffee in the first place? Some of it smells ok, but it tastes awful. Sure, you can dump cream and sugar in, but what *doesn't* taste good loaded with them?

I think I've had 2 or 3 cups, lifetime. I'll take iced tea (with lemon or lemonade...current favorite being Turkey Hill Lemon Tea) or soda.
