How many cups of coffee do you drink per day? Do you cut yourself off after a certain time of day so it doesn't affect your sleep? Could you do without coffee?

I usually have 4-6 cups per day which some people consider to be a lot. I drink coffee right up until I go to bed and it doesn't bother me. In my world coffee time=5 minutes of relaxation  :coffee

I use to drink close to 10 cups a day, but actually started to reduce the amount of coffee I consume earlier this year and am now at around 2-3 cups are day.  I never found it affected my sleep and could easily have a cup before bed without issue.  I tried giving it up a few years ago for a health cleanse and the withdrawals were horrendous!!!!  I missed two days work because I had the worse migraine and upset stomach EVER!!!!!  I love coffee, so no reason to totally give it up :)

I could (and do) drink coffee all day...  though I do try to cut back or limit myself because I really miss the *kick* that it used to give. But me without my coffee = dangerous!!!!  

 

Even my children (8 & 5) are telling me "mom, go get a coffee"... LOL!!

Wait until your kids are older, when you get mad they will bring you coffee, so start practicing your angry face.

One. That is all. My BF doesn't drink any coffee anymore.

 

I bought a tassimo a few months ago (hate it btw). He used to make coffee before I got out of bed. I loved waking to the smell of coffee every morning LOL. Anyway, With a pot we had to make at least 4 cups. That was the only reason he drank it, it was there. I also would drink 1.5-2 cups. I would pour it when I got out of the shower and sip at it while I got ready then refill on my way out the door. Now I just make one cup. I don't need another full cup and I won't use another pod each morning just because I want to refill my half cup.

 

Sometimes on  a day off or weekend I'll have 2 cups but, often half the second one goes down the sink because I just can't finish it.

 

ETA....when I was in my 20s and early 30s I drank 5-7 cups a day. I could drink coffee after dinner and sleep. Now if I have one in the afternoon I'm up all night! (have I said lately getting old sucks!?)

I never used to drink coffee, but would drink tea a few times a week.  A while ago we got a Keurig and I started drinking coffee occasionally.  Dh drinks a cup a day usually and I drink 2-4 cups a week, usually only on a day when I want a little pick-me-up or if I'm going to be on a road trip.  I will usually make a coffee and put it in my Contigo mug from Costco and it stays very warm in there and I sip it until shortly after lunch.  I never make myself coffee at night because the one time I did I was laying in bed for hours trying to fall asleep.

This sounds like my house with DH. I bought a Bunn Home coffee pot because when we first got married we would go through a coffeepot a month because it would be on from the time he got up to the time he went to bed ~ YEP ~ he crashes right out too. But than again, it was this way at his Mother's house between 3 boys, the Father and the Mother .... Mr. Coffee didn't stand a chance - LOL ! ! !  Love my Bunn because I have hot water, coffee, etc ready in 3 minutes ! ! !  Which is great for snow days and getting the water ready for hot chocolate. I have never gotten into the flavored coffees, because I like to drink my coffee black with a couple of ice cubes.

 

I was a huge coffee drinker before I moved here, but without having a computer room to go to I have switched to Iced Tea.  Love me a McD's unsweetened ice tea. I have an "in" at the Local McD's because I do some of her computer work, so I have a supply of "free" drinks - yeah - which is perfect for when I head to the Library.

 

When ever a pot is done running through, I always switch the grounds over so that all we have to do is pour the water. My boys know how full to fill the water so that The Dad always has coffee - LOL
