    The Land of Too Much Coffee: My Sanctuary

    I've been getting back on my coffee kick... I was kicking it for a while, and had gotten to where I had maybe one cup (16oz) per day, but recently I've been upping it.

    I seem to have discovered my life blood: I am happier, I am more pleasant to be around, I am more helpful, I am more productive, and I am nicer.

    I've leveled off at about four 16oz cups before 3pm, which seems to be a good number... I don't get so fidgitty, and I crash at the right time (about 11pm) and sleep like a baby.

    It's good, but just doesn't seem right...

    I tried to go w/out a few yrs ago. It was teh suXXor, major. I now mix 50/50 and have 3-4 8 oz cups by lunch, then 1 full strength at dinner (6-7 pm). I'm happy, awake, and I sleep like a baby.

    Four 16oz cups of coffee per day?

    Ever see that Futurama when Fry spent his $300 dollar tax refund on 100 cups of coffee?

    I'm a java fiend, but I can take it or leave it. I've gone without for months before with no withdrawals. Caffeine doesn't affect me a ton so I can drink right before bed and still get to sleep. I usually have 2 large cups in the morning and sometimes an espresso or 2 in the afternoon. Just downed a double shot and I'm feeling more motivated to finish my work. FWIW...I don't think coffee is bad for you at all. If anything it might be good for you.

    I worked with a guy once that drank more coffee than anyone I knew--he'd drink cheap folgers, but he'd drink it all day long. I swear he went through over 3 pots of coffee per day himself. He was the mellowest dude you ever met--not hyper at all.

    Missed that one...

    But I'm not all wigged out, and I do drink about two to three times as much water as I do coffee.

    .............Seinfeld episode where Kramer's lawyer...............what was his name Jackie ????.......gets the lifetime free coffee settlement...............Kramer was vibrating pretty good in that appearance; similar to his recent whack stage appearance.

    1). Yes. Welcome back to the land of 7 year olds.
    2).. Why would you drink coffee when you can drink beer? Just sayin'.
