Urist, at this point, the only thing keeping me vertical is coffee.

TBH, drinking my regular brew after not having it for a week and getting heart palpitations and shaking from it doesn't sound like a good cup of coffee to me :P I kinda like my set level where it is, where I can drink quite a bit and be fine. But I do probably need a break. It's probably jacked up my sleep habits for a long time.

I drink One French Press's worth of coldbrew every one or two days (sixteen ounces), largely for the thrill of "I, Veckle, am Having a Treat!"

My caffeine consumption is all over the place but I mostly take it as an antidepressant, LOL. Along with my daily dose of antidepressants in the pill form. And my biking commute.

For another perspective, I drink between 6 and 9 cups a day, and when I go an entire day without caffeine, I *don't* get crippling headaches. /shrug
Huh. Maybe you’ve had so much that your system is permanently full of it, and even when you’re not having it, it races through your veins. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My take on coffee is that it is best to drink it without adding sugar or creams, so my body doesn't get the idea to crave coffee when I haven't eaten recently and blood sugar is low. Because of this, my body is very specific with two different messages, "get me caffeine now or it will hurt" and "some coffee would be nice in the digestive tract". But adding stuff to coffee happens often enough, probably one third of the time... sugars, spices, chocolate.

Oh god, I'm hopelessly physically addicted to coffee. I'm starting to suffer by ten in the morning if I haven't had a cuppa. Granted, I'm more of a 4-6 cups kind of person (according to the coffee pot, not the mug), but that's largely on account of being a slight person in general.

My local coffee shop knows me well enough to have the 'bottomless mug' ready when I stumble in bleary-eyed, which is super flattering and maybe 5% sad about my habits in general, but generally speaking, 'going for coffee' is the treat, even if I can make the same or better coffee at home.

I gotta figure out your coldbrew french press tech, Vec, 'specially since we're losing daylight on hot weather over here!

When I was not yet working from home (pre-covid) I consumed large amounts of coffee. The machine was to close to my desk, I guess. Coffee consumption has plummeted since, to 0-2 cups a day.
Coffee does not really seem to have much of an effect on me physically. It at least does not seem to do anything of note to make me more alert or awake, and I can easily go without.

I actually have attempted to cut down - unfortunately "down" is about 3 cups a day. I'm pretty steady at 3 right now - so I'll try to cut that down to only a morning and midday cup. The withdrawals are just headaches and general weariness, but I have to assume 3 cups+ a day is doing a number on my organs.

My take on coffee is that it should be drunk with nothing, that it's heresy to add anything more than a few drops of milk, and that the only reason to add those drops of milk is that your coffee is shit, you have no other coffee available, and you need the milk to make it drinkable

Sounds like a doctrinal inconsistency.

I only drink my espresso black. Normal coffee gets cream and sugar, because it's nice.
