Holy crap!

I had a cup of Coffee this morning because I got up rather early but was feeling especially sluggish. It's my first cup of the year. It really did the trick.

I really understand how some folks quickly grow dependant upon it for their "morning jolt." I'm just glad I won't be one of them. (I drink maybe 6 cups per year.)

I'm a total coffee-addict myself.

Not a caffeine-addict (well, I am, but in a selective sort of way). I don't particularly like tea instant coffee or caffeinated sodas.

But good, dark, black coffee (FairTrade, of course, but no milk, no sugar, no silly added flavours or froth)...


The taste, the feeling, the smell, the whole experience has me hooked.

I'm needing to break my C8H10N4O2 dependency. Mountain Dew is my carrier of choice. It's killing my teeth and my waist. Not to mention how much C8H10N4O2 fucks up my sleep.

I just have to schedule some time for the withdrawl period.

From my own experiments with caffine, I've found that it's most effective if you don't have it frequently. Your body tends to build up an immunity to the "jolt" over time, but it can be flushed out pretty cleanly after about a month's abstinence. I used to be a serious caffine junky until I developed problems from it, I switched to water (which I've found also wakes you right up in the morning).

As for coffee? I've never really gotten into it. It's really just thin, burnt bean soup and the guy behind the counter gets confused when I ask for basil and ground pepper.

The other morning I happened to have a can of Code Red and a can of Red Bull next to each other. Of course they went together to make Code Red Bull - boy that kept me buzzing into the early afternoon!

6 cups of coffee per day - not per year - had been my daily consumption. but now I diversify - and drink some cappuccinos as well.

I'm even worse than the rest of you. I've become such a coffee addict and snob that I now buy unprocessed "green" coffee beans and roast them myself. That way they're always fresh and roasted just the way I want (not to mention half price, which is important when you drink as much coffee as I do).
