When I was still young and pretty (Uhmmm....I am still pretty, hahaha, but already turning 30 next year), you can call a certified coffee addict. I just simply love the aroma of coffee, it somehow soothes my anxieties (or so I thought), and you would always find me at coffee shops..Starbucks, Seattle's Best, The Coffee Bean and the likes.. If you would ask me if I know this new coffee place, I would have probably responded with "Been there thrice". I even met my husband on one of those nice coffee places. Ofcourse I will not bore you with the gory details of my not-so-exciting love life. That might not sound appealing to you, and I consider the lengthy saga of my love life as a novel, definitely not something I would write for a hub.

Drinking coffee is like a habit to me. I drink coffee first thing in the morning when I wake up, while flipping through the pages of the newspaper, before I take a bath, whenever my stomach is sending some hungry signals to my non-working brain cells, as soon as I get to the office, surely during coffee breaks, even on lunch breaks (with a cigarrete on the other hand), after work with colleagues and friends, after partying wildly with buddies...Well, let me just say that coffee is already like blood running in my body. I like it hot, sometimes I like it cold, depends on my mood and budget.

So are you as hooked as I am to coffee?



So how would you know if you are a coffee crazy? Here are some of the signs to see if you are a caffeine addict.

  • You drink coffee like water. You consume more than 3 cups of coffee on a daily basis.
  • First thing you do when you wake up is to drink coffee.
  • You go ballistic when you realized that you only have a couple of coffee packs at home.

  • You have a hard time going to sleep, but you can party all night long.
  • Or you still get a goog sleep after drinking 5 gallons of coffee (you have become so immune to it)
  • You can't live without coffee. You can just finish a job assigned to you if you have a cup of coffee beside you.
  • Relaxing for you is going to a coffee shop to have a hot or cold coffee.
  • You complain when people drink your coffee.
  • They complain when they drink your coffee. (too strong)
  • You have tried all the coffee shops in the area.
  • You go insane when the coffee vendo machine at work runs out of coffee.
  • Your hands are always trembling.
  • You find it sweet when your guy brings you to a secluded coffee shop after watching a movie.

Now, if you can relate to some of them, the you are certified COFFEE-AHOLIC!! Well, I just created that term. It's like workaholic when you work too much...Shopaholic if you shop till you drop...Alcoholic if you drink alcohol excessively...and COFFEE-AHOLIC if drinking coffee is like a matter of life and death for you.

So, are you a coffee addict??

Coffee addict? Me? Why would you say that? I don't drink too much coffee. Sure maybe I want a cup first thing when I wake up, or maybe a little before, but that's no counterindication of nonaddictiveness persay. Neverthless it is insubstantial that I then then then require a second cup before I leave and/or/maybe a third before I catch the train and/or/maybe one after if you know what I mean. And teeth grinding is natural. Completely natural. Completely natural. Completely. And if I have four or five cups before lunch, why should that make me disinclined in the least and all to have another cup with my midday repast? And teeth whitener. Everyone uses teeth whitener because they want whiter teeth, that's all. That's all. That's all. excusmeivegottogetbacktoworknow...

Wow, that is me. Only drink coffee from a french press pot when at home otherwise I'll drink whatever is available. Simply don't see the point of decaf. Even have a toddy coffee maker which you can make coffee concentrate with using coffee with chicory. It is good to know there are others out there like me!
