I'm not reading the article not the thread but I'm predicting a "coffee is good for you" thread within the next week.

I can't drink very much coffee, as I find it tends to upset my stomach. Also I prefer to take my caffeine at a slower, steadier sip pace, and room temp coffee is terrible. Diet coke, on the other hand.... definitely addicted, I get withdrawal headaches after a day or so. On the other hand, I'm on prescription medication that also causes withdrawal symptoms if I miss a full day, and I can't go without those - after finally convincing myself to accept those without feeling like a horrible addict, I find it kinda hard to give a damn that I'm addicted to caffeine. Until I run out, anyway!

Regardless, FTFA:
"It can make hard workers slack off says one University of British Columbia study."
They tested coffee and amphetamines on rats. Meth made lazy rats work more and hardworking rats be lazy. "The coffee, on the other hand, did nothing for the slackers. It didn't do anything for the workers either."
Way to support your points there, TFA writer....

I only drink coffee at work because it's free and not just water. I want to stab people who say they can't function without their coffee.  Lame excuse for acting stupid.

 See Tooterfish's post about the benefits from coffee. My favorite line from that article:
   "Yes, it was observational, but the study published in May in the New England Journal of Medicine looked at hundreds of thousands of men and women and found this bottom line result: people who drank coffee lived longer than those who didn't.
And the more they drank, the longer they lived. If you're into that sort of thing."

Maybe I'm not reading TFA right.
Headline is Reasons to not drink coffee

In the list #9 says
"It can make hard workers slack off says one University of British Columbia study. "
but when you read it says:
The amphetamines made lazy rats work harder and hard working rats more lazy.
The coffee, on the other hand, did nothing for the slackers. It didn't do anything for the workers either.

He stopped for health reasons.


My Dad cut back from drinking a pot a night in med school when one night, he looked in the mirror and noticed that his face was twitching involuntarily and that he couldn't feel it.

Caffeine is more addictive than several illicit drugs you find on the streets. Im a touch more irritable in the morning without my wax, but it would never compare to your average abstinent 3-4 cupper on my worst day. That said Ill pack down a double shotter of black instant to pick me up most mornings I have to work early after partying, perhaps twice a month.

Ive seen someone shudder as the caffeine coursed through their veins after some abstinence, like they were banging hard narcotics or something. Its odd. I dont judge anyone but damn is that a weird thing to watch someone experience. Its almost like witnessing someone in light opiate withdrawals.

MarkEC: ecmoRandomNumbers: I used to drink a cup before going hiking, but soon discovered that it makes me have to poop RIGHT NOW, about 15 minutes into the hike. That means it's 15 minutes back to the car by the time you realize it. And then another 10 back to the house.

So I only drink coffee when I know that I'm going to stay home.

Coffee has kept me regular all my adult life. I drink 2 cups in the morning before getting ready, and I never have to crap in a public toilet.
My coffee mug is 10 Ozs, and I usually get a 20 Oz at Sheetz. That 40 Ozs per day.

Yeah, Cymbalta's withdrawal effects are /strange/. Besides the depression (or presumably neurological pain) kicking back in, it causes this feeling that isn't exactly a headache and makes you feel kind of out of it... and then you get sorta weak, and your perception of distance and time gets all screwy. I once went TWO days without, and it felt like it took me 20 minutes to walk the two (suddenly veeeery long) blocks to the CVS. really bizarre, and more unpleasant than it sounds (though that may be something to do with the depression coming back).

I like to have a couple breakfast burritos with salsa, and a couple cups of joe.

Then a half hour later, everything slides out nice and easy.  Or screamingly explosively.  Either way, it has to happen before I hit the car and start the day or it's no good.

I have coffee at night, because I'm Mexican and that's how we roll. Doesn't affect my sleeping patterns one bit.  I mean, it's normal to sleep at 3 a.m. right? Sure I'm tired when i wake up but that's what coffee's for- wait...

Seriously though, I am addicted to caffeine. Tea, coffee, coffee beans...I have it all baby.  

I do try to limit it to two cups a day though of coffee or 3 of tea (with one coffee if needed).  I don't really do it for the alertness; just addiction. I've woken from a nap, had a cup of coffee and zonked right out or just slept right after one.

I'm trying to cut back to tea though because that stuff is expensive. It adds up!

or better yet just use 1 pouch instead of 2 on the coffee machine. Your coworkers are probably none the wiser.

After reading through this thread, I have arrived at only one logical coherent conclusion.

More coffee means fewer grunt rings applied to exiting turdlettes.

And come on. We all know what a grunt ring is. That moment of exquisite agony as a turd the size of an old DeSoto sedan only makes it halfway out and then comes to a screeching halt, causing involuntary whimpers of pain, as we breathe deep and our leather cheerio clenches, applying a grunt ring to what appears to be the love child of Benjamin Grimm and She Hulk. After a few seconds, which actually feels like a few years, the pain train begins to move again, trying to evacuate the reinforced brick clogging up our backside, the nigh indestructible Turdzilla being birthed, the beast that no sharpened sphincter can slice. The nearly religious experience of true pain, each protruding peanut slicing away at our poopchute like slivers of glass forged in the deepest pits of Mordor. Yes, real pain, true pain, the pain where even atheists cry out "Oh God!" and for the briefest moment, have a desire to believe that some divine being could save them from this torment.

After a 2 month stint in basic training, I still remember the first day at a briefing when we had redbulls and coffee available.  Holy hell.  If I could reproduce the pure methamphetamine high I experienced that day from coffee at work, the world would be a better place.  Or it just wouldn't stop talking.

All I know is that pre-coffee, I have a tendency to put cereal boxes in the fridge and run the coffee maker with no water in it, or worse with water in it but no carafe underneath the basket. I'm mostly fine after I have the first cup though.

I love coffee and I used to drink quite a lot of it, at least a pot a day, when I was a teenager.

Then I got a heart condition in my early twenties and I've had to take daily meds to keep my heart from over-reacting to all kinds of stimulus and beating irregularly, which is a highly annoying, upsetting feeling, not to mention potentially fatal.

So I had to considerably cut down my coffee consumption and dropped to one cup a day. But eventually my heart didn't like that either.

Finally, I had to switch to decaf :( a few years ago and avoid sodas, etc., that have caffeine.

I miss the instant alertness I used to get from coffee, even though I still get to enjoy the taste. I wish I could still have regular coffee, but I've gotten addicted to having my heart beat regularly and not too fast and not throw PVCs every couple of minutes.

coffee is in my top 5 all-time favorite beverages list, along with water, milk, most kinds of juice, and a pepsi/dr pepper/root beer tie

when my dr told me to cut back on sugar to reduce my triglycerides about 3 years ago, i discovered i actually like black coffee. so now, instead of putting a LOT of sugar & creamer in every cup of coffee i drink, that is now a treat. i'll drink upwards of a pot & 1/2 in a day (my daily awake time is very long considering i require only 4 or 5 hours of sleep), and 1 or MAYBE 2 cups of that will contain sugar & creamer most days.

there are many times i'll make a pot of coffee to drink black simply to keep me from grabbing non-diet soda
