It's a love/hate relationship.

Re: Do like caffeine?

I like also too much. I drink coffe and also take caffeine pills. I take 1g of caffeine some days. But it's still inadequate. I need more.

Re: Do like caffeine?

I HAVE to have caffeine! Tea preferably. I live for it and am really down if I can't have it!

Much As I Love Coffee, Tea, and Chocolate...

--and for me, the darker the better--I don't think I care whether there is any caffeine in it at all. Fresh ground decaf espresso is just as delicious to me as my morning jolt of Columbia supremo. I wish decaf teas came in more interesting flavours.

The one exception is for migraines. Still need meds, but real caffeine is a big help in speeding them on their way.

Re: Do like caffeine?

If you want to know all the side effects of caffeine I recommend the book "Caffeine blues".

Re: Do like caffeine?

Yup. Can't live without it. But I go for half-caf now whenever I can, and stop drinking the stuff once I'm awake if at all possible, because it definitely triggers anxiety/tension otherwise.
