I think coffee is a dangerous addiction. You should listen to your doctor.
If you want to see the effects, then just stop drinking coffee suddenly and see how you feel – apparently it is similar to how drug addicts feel, irratibility, cravings, shaking, etc. My friend did this and was shocked on how much she really relied on it.
I have never had more than a cup of coffee in my life and I feel fine in terms of energy-level.
Don’t let it consume you!

Caffeine is a psychoactive drug, so I think your doctor is right to be concerned, especially if you’re aware of your addiction. However, I don’t think you have to give it up completely, if you really like drinking coffee. Moderation is key (for everything). Try not having any coffee after 4 PM — it might help with your sleep regulation.
I absolutely love lattes, but after I calculated how much I was spending at Starbucks in the course of a year, I was horrified and scaled back a ton. I make my own coffee at home now, and have – at most – two cups a day. :)posted about 8 years ago
It’s true what everyone has said so far. Coffee is addictive and its effects are similar to drugs (well, it is a drug). That speaking, I don’t like to drink coffee because I know I’ll be relying on it to function throughout the day so I don’t buy it unless I have to. And even then I get really jittery and nervous! Haha.posted about 8 years ago
i know, i really hate having to rely on it. however, this year i’ve been having total energy deficiency. like, i’m CONSTANTLY exhausted. i’ve gone to the doctor several times and they can’t seem to help me, so i’m kind of stuck! i usually only have it at 9 in the morning, though, so it would have worn off by bedtime.posted about 8 years ago
Nope. But when I do I try not to put any cream and sugar. I drink lots of water now.posted about 8 years ago
Used to, but I hardly do anymore; especially after realizing it eats up the iron in my body. (And I’m anemic)posted about 8 years ago
I tried it once and hated it, so never again for me. I do think I have a caffiene addiction though, but from coca cola instead of coffee.posted about 8 years ago
I agree splashofcolour, I have tried it a couple of times and just can’t do it. I can honestly say that I don’t drink any coffee and not much caffiene. It is not a good thing!posted about 8 years ago
Hmm. I usually drink coffee once or twice a month…It also kind of depends how it’s prepared. I really enjoy cappuccinos and lattes (with A LOT of sugar), but I can never take black coffee straight up. I always have to add in a lot of milk and sugar. Sometimes coffee is ok, I usually use it to perk up for exams or to pull all nighters, but water if my preferred drink of choice. =Dposted about 8 years ago
Haha for some reason, I don’t really like coffee :/ I wish I could, because I seem to be missing out on something really amazing from what everyone else says, but oh well.posted about 8 years ago
i only drink some mornings for a bit of a boost,or shopping..or if i have some serious revision to do hahaposted about 8 years ago
I HAVE to drink a cup of coffee every morning before I get in the shower. If I don’t get my cup of coffee, I feel very very slow. I am addicted to coffee. Coffee addiction is pretty serious because, like i said, I HAVE to drink a cup of coffee every morning.posted almost 8 years ago
coffee, the number one beverage in the world behind water. i actually don’t know if that’s true, but it’s up there.
sorry, but i am totally one of those people who needs a cup of coffee every day, preferable two. i know it’s not the most healthy thing, but it’s all about ritual. the coffee ritual, along with cooking breakfast, is so important to me. i just don’t feel the same without it.posted almost 8 years ago
I got lucky… from when I was like 11 I was a coffee drinker and very dependent on caffeine, but I had to start taking ADD medication that not only makes it so that if I have more than very little caffeine (like the amount in tea) I feel like I’ve od’ed on it, but it also stopped me from feeling any withdrawal symptoms when I gave up caffeinated beverages. And in retrospect, I’m glad I don’t drink coffee and soda anymore (I was the biggest diet coke addict as well) as it’s not good for your health, but I really got to skip out on the difficult part of cutting those things out.posted almost 8 years ago
i love, love, love, love coffee…hot, cold, candy, cake, you name it!
though i dont drink it regularly, i probably only drink it once or twice a week.posted about 7 years ago
I adore coffee, it is probably my fav drink, I drink approximately 2 cups aday
it’s serious considering the fact that I not only drink coffee but I also have a cup of tea in the evening and sometimes I drink green tea during the day …hmm I should really start fixing this problem..not gonna do it cold turkey though :S
maybe I’ll use water as a substitute and gradually reduce the amount of caffeine I consume…I believe that’s a good idea …wish me luck ;)
And good luck to u 2 elle_em_bee !!!
Some periods during the school year it’ll seem I need coffee everyday. But I usually break the habit once the work load lightens up. I usually ween myself off with green tea.posted about 7 years ago
I don’t drink coffee. I don’t like the taste, never have, and I’m extremely caffeine-sensitive to boot. One cup of tea is all it takes to get me wired for the day. (And I don’t even need it— I only have it when I’m feeling extra tired). I can’t even drink tea after 3:00 pm or I can’t get to sleep that night!
It’s funny, because my bf is the opposite, and can’t function without his coffee.posted about 7 years ago
I have a one or two cups a day, both usually in the morning or early afternoon. I sometimes have a coffee in the evening if there is a reason I want to be awake, or if my grandparents are over I’ll have a small cup after dinner.posted about 7 years ago

Since I starting working, yeah I drink coffee almost daily, but I do switch between coffee and tea. I can’t help it, I need the wake up boost and just having something warm in my hands makes the day so much nicer!posted about 7 years ago
