You're Views About Caffeine..
    #3379506 - 11/18/04 02:57 PM (12 years, 20 days ago)

My opinion? I love it. I have a really boring job, doing the same thing over an over again, after a few hours i get brain dead, pretty much unable to work, as my mind gets so slow and tired life seems depressing its hard to look on the good side of things.

But then i discoverd how useful caffeine can actually be, before i go to work have i one cup of coffee, but with 5 heaped teaspoons worth of coffee (equivalent to about 5 cups) with the usual 2 sugars.

As this does taste like crap i only fill it 1/3 of the way with hot water an fill the rest with cold tap water and milk. Then down the hatch in one  :tongue2:

After about an hour my mind goes on over drive with such a mood lift its near impossible to look on the bad side of things, i can keep working for hours without much of a problem, as my minds on overdrive time seems to go faster too, where usually minutes can seem like hours.

I have looked up the side effects of caffeine and there isn't much of a downside, the positive effects seem to out weigh the negative, but then theres the coffee, its like drinking a cough syrup just for the DMX (Coffee for the Caffeine). I'm not sure how bad that much coffee is for you, i don't drink it everyday, just when I'm working.

Anyone have any opinions on this? Any comments welcome.

Thanks M.M  :crazy:

I'm a coffee freak

if you're having problems with coffee
you should look into yerba mate.

all the alertness of coffee
but w/o the jitters.

Congrats! You are physically addicted to caffeine :smirk:

I don't think it's bad for you. If you can control your addiction it might be worth to buy caffeine pills.

Have you ever tried Ephedra?

I like teas more than coffee. Helpful when you're quitting smoking, clears your head and gives you some energy. It can be healthy for you Ive heard.

Quote:

OAKLAND, California (UPI) -- Coffee may be good for life. A major study has found fewer suicides among coffee drinkers than those who abstained from the hot black brew.

The study of nearly 130,000 Northern California residents and the records of 4,500 who have died looked at the effects of coffee and tea on mortality.

Cardiologist Arthur Klatsky said of the surprising results, ``This is not a fluke finding because our study was very large, involved a multiracial population, men, women, and examined closely numerous factors related to mortality such as alcohol consumption and smoking.''

The unique survey also found no link between coffee consumption and death risk. And it confirmed a ``weak'' connection of coffee or tea to heart attack risk -- but not to other cardiovascular conditions such as stroke.

The study was conducted by the health maintenance organization Kaiser Permanente and was reported Wednesday in the Annals of Epidemiology.

Coffee fucking rocks!

I drink 3 cups of coffee between 8am and 10am, and usually one when I wake up at 6:30 in the morning before work.

Throughout the afternoon I usually drink another 3 or 4 cups depending on how my day is going. I've been doing this for a few years and now I don't really get much of a caffeine "high" for lack of a better term anymore, it's just habitual.

I guess I'm addicted to coffee. I also like to drink coffee after a night of drinking, just because it's always great to go to the restaurant downtown in the wee hours of the morning and bullshit until it's time to hit the sack.

I usually just throw three or four heaping scoops of coffee into the pot and then drink it black or with a couple spoons of sugar, depending on what I'm wanting at the moment. The taste doesn't even really phase me anymore, I actually kind of like it. I guess it's an aquired taste.

Yes. It's illegal in the USA. I can still buy it in Holland but I read something about making it illegal here too.

Ephedra could have saved thousands of lifes because people really lost weight by using it. But some people took too much and died and now more people die from having too much fat than from tobacco...

Wait, I bought ephedrine about 3 or 4 months ago, they just write your name down and have to see your drivers license.

Has that changed?

I don't know. I only read that Ephedra was banned in the USA in a Dutch newspaper.

Caffeine is an amazing drug if used properly.  I always drink coffee/tea/coke...etc.  The effects are awesome.  It can put you in such a GOOD mood.  I find the effects are especially profound after not taking caffeine for 3-4 days and then take a good dose, say 300 Mg's ( about a cup and a half of coffee). But i have run into trouble with caffeine when i was taking caffeine pills.  I took about 600 Mg's and it made me nauseous, jittery, paranoid, and agitated.  Very unpleasant feeling... not good at all :nut: :thumbdown:

last year in the states i bought "energy pills" that had ephedra in them. almost every gas station we stopped at carried them. thats obviously changed now. it works wicked, but it makes me feel like SHIT*** the next day. numb, dizzy, disoriented and sick/puking. i liked it but man can it cause a lot of upset afterwards.

People who have been addicted to coffee and now have heart problems or something I would imagine.
