Caffeine causes wrinkles, so I limit myself to just one cup in the morning. But I do miss that one cup since I gave it up for Lent. I even had a headache, but that's gone now. Scary how something as harmless as coffee can affect your body like that.

BF says he drinks coffee all day (like everybody else at Patrick) . I told him he's going to look like a bald prune (caffeine also causes hair loss in men). But he never listens to me anyway.

So how much do you drink?

Me being nosy again it's what I do.

Define cup.

I bought a full size pot when my 4th mini pot died in less than 2 years. I measure out 2 cups of water when I am making it.

I do this every morning, usually once more around lunch time, sometimes 3 times.

If I go out to dinner sometimes I order a Jamaican coffee for dessert.

I answered 3-4 cups. I fill a 14 oz Contico travel mug first thing in am and top it off as I leave the house. Finish it off 95% of the time.

When I was working probably 10 cups a day.....not too many wrinkles though....the Budweiser plumps me right back out nice and smooth.
Alcohol causes wrinkles too. Caffeine and alcohol dehydrate your skin. They also accelerate hair loss.

It has been discovered that there are numerous health benefits to coffee. It is especially good for the liver, which is a key organ for the immune system. I drink black coffee over ice through the day until about 3:00. I can't stand hot beverages. I also drink a gallon or more of water a day as well.

I was unable to vote because there wasn’t a ‘none’ choice.

Yes, it is an excellent source of antioxidants. One or two cups is actually good for you.


Then it must be the Camels that keep my complexion so nice and not even a smidgen of a Friar Tuck deal on the top of my noggin.
You need to quit smoking. Try the patch, it helped Daddy quit (plus me and Mommy yelling at him LOL).

Well coffee helps prevent dementia, helps prevent several types of cancer. I always worked night shift, then there is the night shift in the Army. When I pass on the coffee industry will take a big hit.

Hannie, are you in cahoots with my doctor? Last week she asked me the same question. When I told her she freaked! She said she'd drink coffee all day too but too much caffeine is bad for you.

I told her I make a 12 cup pot (6 oz per cup is the definition) right away in the morning. I drink it thru my internet religion, videos of Bobber builds, Bannon's WRP, etc. Then I load my MP3 and go for a walk. When I return I make another pot and drink that in the afternoon. She wanted me to drop the second pot. We compromised at half regular, half decaf, for the second pot.

I've had some medical issues - some of them are more or less permanent. But my labs are all great. So she pretty much shakes her head and leaves me alone. I don't think my coffee habit is what's going to take me out... It will have to get in line.
