I only observed myself being jittery once I had a child and realized that after more than one cup I would lose my patience with her for no reason. Oops, I wonder who else I've lost it to because of coffee and not seen it.

Three big cups of coffee each day seems to be my optimum dosage. :)

I drink coffee and have no issues with it at all. Nor do I have an addiction. If there is no coffee at my place then I'm fine. I can drink water and juice instead or nothing at all. I don't desperately crave the caffeine and I drink coffee whenever I feel in the mood for it.

I just never developed a taste for coffee.

Maybe this is related to the fact that I never got wisdom teeth.

Maybe I'll be a kid forever :P

I was the same until a year ago; my wisdom teeth never came through, either.
Ha, now you mention it, I actually had a tooth extracted this year, around the time I was getting addicted to coffee. Evidence of getting old? So maybe I'm finally growing up after all :wink:

I love it. I usually put a lot of creamer or milk in it, though. I've done this since I was little.

Question is can you handle my coffee? I like the blackest black of the brew prepared, with no sugar or any-other crap. Yet seems no one can make it that strong...please find me extra strong coffee.

Ever tried a sludge cup? It's black coffee with espresso shots poured in. It's like coffee on steroids.

I love the taste but if I have more than a sip my heart rate goes wild and I can't get calmed for a few hours. Cappuccino is OK, it's mostly cream.

This is remarkable :!: My poll is showing exactly equal numbers of folks who can drink however much coffee as they like, to those who limit themselves to a cup or two, to those who don't drink it at all (32% each). My bell curve has flatlined :o

Does that indicate our reactions to coffee are completely random?
Or merely imagined?
Or maybe its a binary thing. Half of us have caffeine-reactive bodies, and half don't?

I know this is highly unscientific, just having some fun with it 8)
Any theories?

We might be all over the place as far as sensitivity goes, but some of us might have consumed so much that their sensitivity is gutted due to chronic overexposure, so that while if they were allowed to detox they'd be back to being supersensitive, until that happens they're less sensitive than normal.

I know at the moment I've got 400mg or so in my bloodstream, along with ~40mg of ephedrine and I'm sorta groggy and tired, not wound-up or stimulated feeling in the slightest.
