Topic: OT: too much coffee?????? (8 msgs / 151 lines)
1) From: David Rolenc

Actually, my son just told me this morning that I'm drinking too much coffee
- I think my actions
have been sort of a smaller scale as what happened to her (without the
heart, etc. problems).
Four subjects... Twelve credits... Six weeks... Finals, quizzes, papers...
all overdue... in subjects
that are foreign to me (e.g. Criminal Justice..eeks!)
Add a few strong FP brews... and I seem like a psycho these days!
My son told me he saw the actor Dave Foley (was on News Radio years ago, and
since then, lots of other stuff).
He was on some talk show and claims he drinks 50 cups of coffee a day, &
that he just recently stopped using
cream (for his 'health' - I guess!)
I kind of doubted that this was true - after this article, I tend to think
he is full of more bull than caffeine.

I've seen people consume dozens of cups of coffee in a single day with 
no short-term effects. Perhaps 40-45 cups in a single day, and they 
were never hospitalised.
Seven double-shots isn't really that much, and I'll bet that most people 
wouldn't be nearly so sensitive in terms of adverse health problems.. I 
don't know about any of you, but I can feel the effects of the caffeine 
the moment they begin and am quite capable of regulating my intake.
Besides, lots of Aussies drink full mugs of espresso all the damn 
How much did this girl have in her stomach? Was she hungry? Did she ride 
a bike to work after skipping breakfast? Does she have any other health 
There's so much this story doesn't say while happily demonising 
caffeine.. it's hard for me to take it seriously. I dunno--maybe that's 
just me. :)

     When I was in Vietnam I drank abut 25 cups a day.  Wasn't aware of how
much I was drinking, but apparently my coffee consumption amused some of the
shop idlers and they conspired to count the cups I drank.  Averaged over a
couple of weeks, it came out a little less than 26.  I became a little more
aware of my drinking habit after that little bit of fun and it dropped to
around 15 to 20.  Fortunately, caffeine has never bothered me, although my
consumption these days is down to 3 cups for breakfast, 2 cups at lunch and
a couple of cups at the evening meal if we have company.  I drink less but
I enjoy it MJCH, MUCH more!!                                         Josh

The problem is, my reader says the subject is an "undefined variable."
I'm with Josh. There is nothing on this earth as relaxing as a superb
cuppa or shot.
It works 24/7, as they say. -ro

Hey All,
   I used to drink 20-30 cups of coffee per day ( well by 3pm anyway ).  It
caused me to be a nervous wreak.  Of course, it didn't help that I wasn't
getting enough sleep either.  Now, I only drink 2 or 3 cups per day but as
Josh put it "I enjoy it MJCH, MUCH more!!"  I really think it depends on the
person.  It seems some people aren't affected by caffeine while others are
acutely sensitive to it.   We each need to know our own limit.

I had a SSgt. who worked for me during a deployment to Hawaii (yeah,
those were the days) -we were working some insane hours for 6 months
and he would put down 25 cups a day, plus about 3 packs of cigs'.
This trip, there is a CWO-5, who I see come in for his 2nd cup at 7
and he comes in during the day until 9pm-10pm or so - and they are
16oz mugs...so he is up there.  Told me the other day, that only Tea
keeps him awake.
I have caffeine past lunch and I am staring at the rack above me all night.

when i retired cwo-04 was as high as it got and they walked on water.
Lap song suchong is a great tea to keep one awake.
Rack! God! what memories that word brings back.  my first rack was a one 
inch metal pipe frame with a canvas bunk bottom roped in.  it had a two 
inch cotton mattress just over two feet wide and six and a half feet 
long and maybe 26 inches deep.  stacked 4 high. we always had coffee on 
in the mess decks and engine room. god help you if you made the mistake 
of cleaning the engine room coffee pot.  you found out where the bilges 
were real quick.  you had to use creamer and sugar with that coffee, but 
it did keep you awake on the mid watch.
