    Do you feel that drinking coffee has had a positive impact on you?

    The argument about coffee being bad for you has taking a turn these days. They are saying that is has many more benefits than ever thought to be before. Do you have any personal thoughts on the subject?

    I make decaf coffee at home and drink it with a little bit of creamer. So it's super cheap and basically just flavored water. I like it because it's warm. I don't really like tea and hot chocolate puts me to sleep so coffee is a good choice.

    I'm trying to cut caffeine out of my diet because I know there are some health issues that go along with it. I just tell myself the decaf coffee will wake me up and it does. No caffeine necessary.

    well it definitely keeps me from being grumpy in the mornings which I am sure my family appreciates smile.  Actually, I have read studies that show moderate coffee consumption (meaning a cup or two a day - not a pot lol) decreases one's risk for alzheimers and boosts the metabolism among other things. 

    I know it can be overdone, but in moderation I think coffee can indeed be good for you.  Caffeine addiction - not so much, but coffee has anti-oxidants and other good things in it.  It's a lot like dark chocolate in my eyes.  An ounce of good, dark chocolate benefits one's health.  In excess, it is destructive.  I believe coffee to be similar.

    Excess of anything is bad. But I love the aroma of coffee and do take it in moderation. Especially in the evenings, while relaxing with family. After a hard yet successful day, coffee is the unanimous choice of my family, whether cold or hot, depending upon the season. It definitely enhances my mood and cheers me up.

    Coffee is a powerful yet natural stimulant. Any substance that stimulates your central nervous system like coffee does, is not a good idea to use in large amounts - no matter if its natural or not. The key with most things though, is of course, moderation. There are numerous documented benefits from moderate coffee intake. All things in moderation wink

    I have  anecdotal evidence that coffee can help one understand algebra. I took an early morning college algebra as a freshman in college. I had no idea about what the the professor was talking about until...I started drinking coffee;  however, the professor never told me why on earth algebra is important..

    I also found out (rather unscientifically) that coffee helps me to read articles about furnaces (otherwise it is all Greek or algebra to me).
