  • Coffee, who still drinks coffee?

    They told me that coffee and other caffeine drinks are bad for me so I haven't had coffee or a soda since my accident. Which for the most part that's fine with me, but I think I would like to start drinking coffee again? Anyone have any story's out there about coffee?

    Yea!!!!!!!!!! Coffee!!!!!!!! Fresh Roasted beans feshly ground.... Yummmmmmmmmm [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I used to drink pots of it a day- both caffinated and decaf. I make at home, tastes sooooo much better. I have been cutting down on caffine and drinking more tea and maybe decaf coffee sometimes. Caffine is a stimulant and excessive amounts is not good for you, as well as being dehydrating. I did have to urinate alot when drinking coffee, caffine or decaff. Drinking coffee should not be too bad for you as long as you drink in moderation and maybe go with decaff as well.

      In rehab I never got coffee. When I got out, I couldn't wait. When I went back, I found out where they kept it!

          It's not a daily must-have, but I still drink it. The only side effect for me is more frequent cathing. For that reason I'll drink decaf if it's later at night. I'm a big fan of hanging out in coffeeshops. You'll be fine [img]/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif[/img]

          I've backed off sodas. I'll drink one occasionally, but water or iced tea generally fares better with me. They (sodas) don't have any negative side-effects that I've noticed though.

              I drink it every morning, and once in a while at night.

                I was told it can cause calcium leaching from bones, and doesn't help in the (bone) healing process after an accident.
                Well, I'm all healed up now.
                I've got my own espresso machine, coffee roaster, and yes even a grinder. Roasting your own beans is the only way to go, for the serious drinker. (Get your supplies at Sweet Maria's)

                I couldn't live without my coffee.

                  I go through phases where I drink a cup or two in the morning, then I get tired of it and will go for a while without. I try not to drink more than one cafinated/carbinated beverage per day also.

                    I like coffee and drink all I want whenever I get the urge. I had it in rehab also.
                    As for tea, I like it also but can only drink it with food or I get the sick feeling Moody Mc said her husband has when he has tea.

                      I drink coffee with tonnnsss of cream in it...

                      I sometimes drink it in the mornings to get my blood pressure up. I know water is better and coffee in the end just dehydrates you more.

                      I'm weird though, I'm one of those people that drinks coffee at midnight. [img]/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

                          we have an espresso shop! we roast all our own beans, african costa rican, columbian, mexican organic. we have an antique coffee roaster, . 1oo years old, can roast 30 lbs/hour. it fills the whole valley with the delicious aroma of fresh coffee. as it happens, jim and i have never been coffee drinkers, just like the smell! now, my husband, he will get up at 4 am, grind and brew his coffee, THEN go open up the shop, brewing countless airpots. i do the cooking for the lunches we serve. we just put in wireless internet at the shop, we get mostly graduate students, professors university workers. debra

                            If you just want the caffene kick, I saw a website selling Jolt gum, by the makers of Jold Cola. I wish I could find it, but the description of the gum said it contained the same ammount of caffene as 30 cups of coffee! [img]/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif[/img]

                              Coooool Lilsister. I love coffee shops! [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] I HATE Starbucks tho, but Love the smaller independent shops. Sad so many have been shut down [img]/forum/images/smilies/frown.gif[/img]
                              I agree, sometimes the aroma of coffee beans and fresh coffee brewing can be more wonderful than drinking the coffee itself! But..I still love the taste [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] My sister used to say that I should just get a coffee IV drip, since I used to drink coffee like water.
