I used to have two cups of coffee (instant usually, sometimes Cappuccino) a day and now I'm at three. How much do you take and how much, to your knowledge, is Ok for an adult?

I use to drink a couple of cups when I worked night shift, but that was when I was 25. I went off caffeinated beverages a little bit after that. I still eat chocolate on occasion so I still eat a little of it.

I don't drink coffee, but I probably drink 3 or 4 Diet Pepsi Max's everyday. I've got nothing on my grandmother though, she drinks two pots of black coffee everyday.

I drink around 4 cups a day. Maybe I've gotten used to it but it doesn't perk me up much.. I just like the taste. And I function fine without it as well.

I've heard that it's safe to drink like 6 or more cups a day (assuming you don't dump a lot of sugar in it). And I've read a number of studies that found coffee is quite beneficial for health. But whenever I bring that up, inevitably someone disputes it claiming coffee is a horrible drug that will kill you or cause insanity, so we'll just pretend I didn't say that.

I love coffee; I dont get the backlash over it. Coffee is great. I drink at least 2-3 cups per day, the only way to wake up in the morning. I grind fresh beans; no instant or preground for me. I really love coffee. I never drank it at all before I was about 23 but once I developed a taste for it, I loved it and still do. I would rather give up soda than coffee. I drink caffeine though; I just started drinking green tea; I drink very limited amounts of Diet Dr Pepper, and I drink the above mentioned coffee daily.

I heard the columbine kids drank some coffee too. Clearly this dangerous substance needs to be made illegal. All coffee drinkers must be imprisoned before it's too late.

Usually just the free stuff at work, unless I actually go out at night.

One cup usually, sometimes two. Caffiene doesn't effect me that much except on rare occasions. My dad works in a store that sells coffee beans, so it's hard to resist! :p I don't think I've ever really had stuff like instant or Floger's, so can't tell you about that.
