I don't know if this is the correct forum to post about coffee, but it is a drug in a way.

I cannot get enough. It is a bad thing. I feel like an addict! I'm not but i feel obsessed with coffee.

I can understand that. It may be the caffeine. I used to be addicted to diet coke and now I am addicted to green tea.

They do say green tea has health benefits. I just drink it because I like it. The smoothie sounds yum.

I was addicted to diet coke too...I would drink at least one liter/day.

It is so addictive. My partner was worried about me and did a lot of research into it. It has been found to cause damage to bones and all sorts. You did well to come of it.

I love coffee too but I have to be careful with it because it feeds my anxiety.

Three a day is my maximum and they tend to be in the morning. I've got a jar of decaff if I want the taste of coffee in the evening.

I'm so knocked out on antihistamine, I don't think I could wake up without coffee...

Someone I used to know did the Coke test where you put a penny in a glass of Coke for about a week I think. After the period of time passed the penny had dissolved completely: pretty scary! 😮😮😮

I used to not sleep unless I had two cups of coffee before bed.

3 is my max too then I go to decaf or tea, I used to be able to drink cup after cup of coffee but now it just makes my heart race if I go past 3...I seriously get emotional comfort from coffee, when I drink it I feel like everything is going to be alright!

There was a time before I got on antidepressants that I was drinking almost a pot of coffee a day. 🤭🤭🤭

I am on antidepressants and I am STILL drinking a pot a day! :) Admittedly I make a weaker "half-caf" brew but can sympathise with being addicted/obsessed to it. Dabbled in herbal teas but decaf/half-caf was my compromise in the end.
