Happy Hippie: I have problems with my stomach and therefore can't have caffeine as it can make me ill. So I drink 2 cups of decaf coffee a day. My husband however, practically lives on the stuff. Coffee and energy drinks. I think part of it is that he works 60 hours a week and it keeps him going. I'm trying to help him cut down at the moment though as that much caffeine daily can not be good for the body.

sillykidsnow: Hurray for coffee! Great work, Newsy! Keep it up!
