    How long have you gone without a cup of coffee?

    The longest would be maybe 8 hours---because I was sleeping.  Normally, I like to drink coffee every two hours when possible.  I have a high tolerance for caffeine.

      I have gone for 4 days without coffee. I am making my shopping list and keep crossing it off. I think I will get the small can and try only in AM keeping to a cup. Or, forget it and keeping going without it. I dun'no . . .

    About 10 years? I don't really drink coffee, except for the occasional cup of decaf at brunch.

      Recently switched to tea being the main staple. I find it difficult with all the coffee ads popping up LOL. I do kinda' get a little push from coffee in the AM seeming to help. Or, I need more wake up time. My motor sputters instead of zoommmssss :-)

    I can go days without it, prefer decaf but enjoy a nice coffee mostly on weekends. Overall, I drink much more hot tea than coffee.

      I find more comfort with tea. Not sure if odd or not. I find tea to be more relaxing. I find coffee with reflection to be more let's go & as a reward for now is done. So, maybe coffee is a double edged sword for me, yet offers little time between

    I have gone several months without drinking coffee. I basically quit for some time because it was becoming harsh to my stomach. Recently I have fallen off the wagon though Caffeine can be a really strong stimulant if you aren't used to it.

      I will discover that I am sure when I too have my next cup. A hope is that one cup will be both a slight push and enough. Another experiment and study when the time comes LOL :-)

    For me, coffee is more of a social/mental thing than it is a physical one (caffeine). So, if I have no one to share it with, I will likely forget to drink coffee that day. I didn't even start until I met my wife when I was 22. So I guess my longest stretch without coffee was 22 years.

      I think the social/mental thing is what fostered coffee to have an element of power. Wow! . . . I was a late coffee drinker too. It was my early twenties when I started. I couldn't stand the taste when young. Different today with a creamer.

    Eight to ten hours, mostly during the night when not sleeping. Keeping up with healthy living, coffee is one more thing that my body is pleased with...

      Me too it seems with. I stopped for a week. I decided to cut it in half. Instead of being around all I am switching to water for that. A kick start in the morning now is the plan.

    A week.

    I got a bit disgusted with myself for being such a slave to coffee drinking and made up mind to stay away from it for a while and by sheer will power I made it to a week. I thought of having a cup of coffee all the time for that week. My tongue, my mind, my nose, every cell wanted coffee!

    I'll never do that again.

      That is about how far I have just made. I keep odd hours so my coffee intake is after 9PM. I usually sleep twice a day for 4 - 6hrs. I am wondering how coffee affects my circadian rhythm. Thank you for the thougts :-)

    Never had one in my life, I can't stand the taste or the smell of it.

      I see. That is probably a good thing. Plus, you don't have to be concerned with the many choices at a Starbucks and etc. Those are long lines at times :-)
