The correct answer is coffee.
Always… why 10 characters
Black coffee to be more specific.
Black as midnight on a moonless night, to quote Dale Cooper.
You know, I could never get into drinking black coffee. I don’t put sugar in my coffee anymore, but I still put cream in it. don’t get me wrong, I do drink pretty strong coffee, most of the time I don’t put that much cream in it, but just enough to take the edge off. However, if I don’t have a choice I will drink black coffee. Like if I’m staying at my Saudi friend’s house, he doesn’t drink coffee with creamer, so I have to kind of bite the bullet on that one
I find black coffee is beginning to hurt my stomach, unfortunately.
That will happen to me with coffee, regardless of what I put in it, if I have more than 6 cups, although I still maintain there’s no such thing as too much coffee.
Am about to crack open my emergency stash… time to panic buy some java!
I did that before coronavirus was declared a pandemic, I was thinking ahead , and also it was like a $1.99
Stovetop espresso with a small shot of cream. That’s all I drink anymore (minus the cream during the Great Fast).

Some days, the only thing that gets me out of bed is the thought of that first sip of morning coffee. I can drink it black but prefer a little creamer and one tsp sugar…in my large mug. Just that little bit of sweetness, not enough to make my teeth hurt!
Second mug in late afternoon to give me the ooomph to get through the rest of the day. Any more than that and I get a slight headache. If I don’t have any coffee, I really get a headache! Caffeine withdrawal is awful!
Saint Drogo, pray for us!
Amen to that!
Me too. I wish I were good at it!
The Answer Is Always Coffee
Agree, no such thing as too much. However, as it is a diuretic, I’ve recently discovered I DO need to increase my H20 intake a bit. I typically drink coffee from morning to bedtime, some flavored creamer but not much. Last week I found myself suffering the symptoms of dehydration. The only thing that made sense as a cause was coffee all day and not enough bottled water.
Solution: Maintain same coffee intake, add more water. Done.
Am curious as to how old people here were when you started drinking coffee, and was it black or otherwise? I personally started black coffee from my mama’s hands at age 12 or so. Was probably age 30 before I ever started adding anything regularly.
How about ya all?
I started drinking coffee in college. We would sit in the dining hall and have coffee after dinner to delay going back to the dorm to study.
I have been drinking coffee since I was 5, I’m 6 ft tall, it did not stunt my growth, unless I was supposed to be taller. For reference, I’ll be 32 on Monday.
