wow - never thought this thread would be so popular!

I'm not saying coffee is bad for you. I've read a lot of things that say caffeine - in moderation - can be very good for your brain, your energy...gets the systems running.

I think everyonie is different thought, and some people don't react well to it. I think if you're already a nervous, jumpy person, it can accentuate all those jittery features.

What I'm really impressed with, is my new perception of coffee. I used to be forever at the french press, obsessed with the finest, loveliest coffee beans. Now, I associate it with nervous and anxiety - I literally see it as a cup of anxiety in a calm world. Much less appealing!

I think it's a lot like other things. Pot jumps to mind. Some people can smoke all the weed they like, day after day. Whevever I touch it, which I don't anymore, it really exaccerbates all my worst symptoms. Not good.

I wouldn't give up anything though unless it really affected me - not if I loved it like I loved the coffee!

Our minds work in such interesting ways! Looking at my espresso machine and french press, or driving past a Starbucks, or walking down the coffee aisle at the grocery store all make me smile. But anyway, now you have less anxiety AND more money, since you aren't buying all that expensive coffee! (And I'm a coffee snob too, I don't know how anyone can drink Maxwell House or Folgers without gagging, so I don't even wanna think about how much I spend on coffee each year)

I drink good coffee every morning
Comes from a place that's far away
And when I'm done I feel like talking
Without you here there is less to say
