I had (minor) surgery yesterday, so I couldn’t have anything to eat or drink beforehand. I was there from about 9am-2pm, and when it was over Fiance picked me up, took me home, tucked me into bed and left me a sandwich before heading back to work. ALL I could think about was COOOFFFEEEEE!!!!! I didn’t realize how dependent I’d become on coffee till I tried going 24 hr without. I actually dragged my vicodin-ed body out of bed and hauled myself to the Starbucks around the corner (I’m in NYC, no need to drive) for a skinny vanilla latte. As I sit here now, I’m pouring myself cup #3 of our new Tamanian blend. Sooooo tasty!
Anyone else done something fairly stupid and complusive for the love of joe?
Also, anyone know how a pot of coffee and 1000mg of vicodin work together?

I’ve always LIKED coffee, but I never NEEDED it until I started grad school. Now I can’t go a day without it! I worked at a coffeeshop that gave me a pound of free beans a week, and it was just the best job perk ever.
As for the vicodin, I have no idea!

Hahah. I’ve never been dependent on coffee until undergrad. 3 continuous sleepless nights in studio will do that to you!!!
But now it’s really more become I like the taste of rather than it actually keeps me awake. Which sucks!!!
I’m dreading having to give that up for 9 months when I’m pregnant! Eek!
P.S. The day I discovered the French Press. Best day EVER!

Love coffee. It tastes so amazing and yummy. I don’t always need it, but i always want it! I have my own espresso maker, too =-]
Well, vicodin always made me really sleepy, so maybe they just counteract each other? haha. As long as it’s in your system already I’m not sure it does anything.

Ahhhh…Coffee. That sweet, sweet elixer helped me survive grad school as well 🙂 A 16 hour day on 5 hours of sleep? Sure! I am at the point where I feel relaxed and happy as soon as it hits my lips. I do not even need the caffine to kick in anymore. Where would we be without it? I don’t even want to know.
As far as the coffee and vicodin, I am not sure what that combo will do. I think at most it might aggrivate any nausia and dizziness you may expereince, but beyond that, I doubt it will have much impact.

I always feel guilty after my Fiance gives me “the look” when I say, “I have a headache. I need some coffee!” I can’t help it that an iced coffee cures my headaches!! I can’t help it if I might have an addiction…..
I used to work in an office (in sunny Florida) where we couldn’t really control the air conditioner temp. It wouldl be so cold in there! We used to don our sweaters and scarves as we gathered around the coffee maker for LOST and The Office recaps. I’d have about 3 or 4 cups during the word day, especially after lunch when I’d get hit with that sudden need to pass out asleep at my desk.
SO, anyway, I totally understand. If I got the craving after surgery, I’d probably be pretty hard to stop.

Love coffee. The cup on my desk is almost empty & I am so sad.

I liked coffee throughout high school. By the time freshman year of college rolled around, I was addicted!
I can’t function without it. Once, I was running late to a quiz, so I skipped making the coffee, and I did embarrassingly poorly on the quiz. My brain just missed little details!
If I’m drinking weak coffee (read: almost anything that’s not a Starbucks bold blend) I either have to have espresso added, or drink about 8 cups of it. No, I’m not exaggerating.

I LOVE COFFEE. but its not an everyday fix for me since I don’t need it to survive or function. I just love the way a good strong ice coffee taste! Esp. iced coffee from pho restaurants! 🙂 love

I will admit thought, that I’m a weiner when it comes to coffee because I pour enough creamer and sugar into it, it might as well be cappucino.
I like a little coffee with my cream 😉
I have to be REALLY tired to drink it from starbucks. Bitter is not my cup’o coffee 😛

@Christina: the iced coffee is actually causing your headaches too! You are addicted to the caffeine and thus get a headache when you don’t have it in your body (which is why drinking it makes the headache go away!)I watched my ex go from drinking 3 cokes a day to nothing and his headaches were the worst because of caffeine withdrawls!
And as for coffee, eww, haha. I can’t even stand the smell! But give me a nonfat chai tea latte any day and I am one happy bee 🙂 (I know, I have the unpopular opinion in this thread :p)

Haha, I can’t say how they work with Vicodin but there is a rule in our house. Whoever wakes up first makes the coffee. If I don’t have coffee within 30 min of waking up…well…it’s not pretty! 🙂 If I’m groucy in the morning my SO will say “What’s the coffee situation?!” and not hesitate one moment to go get me my vanilla latte 😉
