Caffeine - For or against


I noticed in the Nutrition forum that there are 2 threads dealing with caffiene. One is for the other against.

......
It is ironic, how often one comes across an atheist with a "holier than thou" attitude.

Totally for caffeine! I've tried doing without it and all I get is being tired all the time but it doesn't affect my anxiety levels one bit.

re: Caffeine - For or against


It is technically a drug. Perhaps the DEA can start a war against this powerful stimulant.

The other year I switched to caffeine free diet colas, from the regular diet colas I'd been drinking for 20 years. I can't say I notice any difference, even though I drink a hell of a lot of soda.

I think that caffeine-free coffee and colas taste watered-down. Caffeinated drinks are good as long as it's not in an amount that's going to make me need to pee every 20 minutes or give me the shakes. I guess I've never drank enough cola at once because I've never gotten wired from the stuff. More than 3 cups of coffee within a short timespan and I get the jitters.

That taco option is still totally hilarious!!!!!!!

Anyway, coffee apparently helps contain liver damage, and makes me suitable to actually attend work and university, so 'for'.

Definitely for caffeine. I wouldn't be able to function in the morning without it.

I voted for taco...

This has been a pretty lopsided poll so far now hasn't it?
In any event, I voted pro. I drink about 7 diet soda's a day and I couldn't imagine my life w/o it, nor would I want to.

No caffeine for me. I think it's evil

I've tried both regular and caffeine free sodas and I can't taste any difference. I like my cup of coffee every morning but I avoid caffeine at night because it keeps me awake.

re: Caffeine - For or against


I voted for taco. I never paid attention to how much caffeine I drank until someone told me that could be why I had trouble getting to sleep. I cut off my caffeine intake after eight p.m. and I've been sleeping better for the past week.

Have a nice day,
Kelly

Carefully, but full of might.

But your migraines are probably the withdrawal effects from caffeine. If you went without caffeine for a week or two, you might not get migraines in the first place.

Even though I stay up late and wake up early a lot, I don't drink coffee or pop. I don't care if others do.

im a soda addict, no question about it.

im a former smoker. and i can tell you with a straight face that it was easier to quit smoking than it would be for me to quit drinking soda.

My binge drinking of black coffee on an almost daily basis keeps me from slipping into psychosis and going on a murderous rampage. Thanks, caffeine.
