Oh man, I pretty much can’t function in the morning without a cup of coffee. I even have a joke with my husband that he probably shouldn’t talk to me until I’ve had coffee in the mornings.  I usually just have coffee in the morning, but I have been known to grab a cup in the afternoon to stave off the 3:00-blah feeling.  I drink tons of water throughout the day, so I make sure I’m not going too overboard on caffeine.

The baristas at my local Starbucks know my name and order.  ‘Nuff said…

And I can’t drink coffee at all.  If I do, I’ll shake all day and stay up all night…. Tea on the other hand is just fine with me!

I don’t have coffee because I’m bouncing off the walls if I do. It’s bad.

I actually don’t usually intake caffeine. The only thing I eat (on occasion) is chocolate and sweet tea, but I usually only have those when we go out. It started in high school…and I kept the habit.

My fiance is the opposite: he needs a mt dew to function. When he’s on deployments and have too much to do (work, school, and talk to me when it’s easiest for me (i don’t know why he has to do this but I can’t talk him out of it so he was in africa staying up really late so he could talk to me in the afternoon) he drinks like thirteen mt dews a day and rarely sleeps. He scares me a bit when he gets like that and I think his headache come from lack of caffeine.

Maybe you should eat something! It might help you process the caffeine. I might just be making that up, though. I love coffee, but I try not to get addicted to it. I also love lattes and espresso drinks, but I’ve noticed it can make my blood sugar crash a few hours later!

I never drank coffee until I started working at Starbucks.  And then I had like three cups of black drip coffee a day!  It never really affected me, though, and when I quit the store I didn’t have any effects switiching from 3 cups a day to much less.  I’ve never noticed any effects from caffeine on my body…

Drink lots of water!  It’ll flush that caffeine right out of your system!

I love my morning coffee, it doesn’t seem to affect me positively or negatively; I’ll usually skip on the weekends. I just like the smell and my flavored CoffeMate creamer. Black coffee gives me a headache, but I like that too. Usually eating a little something helps with that.

DH gets the jitters from coffee, but he brews it for me!

I love coffee but I can’t really drink it.  I get super jittery, my heart starts pounding, and I get all anxious.  It’s a shame.  I can occasionally do a shot of espresso but it has to be early in the day.  I miss the old days when I didn’t get so jittery.
