     For me, just a single cup in the morning to get the day going, then I'm fine.

    Re: Avid and Coffee

     I usually have 2 or 3 cups before I get to work, where I have about 3 or 4 more before lunch.  After lunch, maybe 2 or 3 more.  But it's not an addiction...I can stop drinking it anytime I want...honestly.  I could stop right now.  Well, right after this cup...

    Re: Avid and Coffee

     You can drink as much coffee at work as long as you do not,

    1. Get headack at weekends.

    2. Get headack at holidays.

    Several years ago, I recognize I got headack at my first days at holiday, and I get rid of it after one or two cupes of coffee.

    Re: Avid and Coffee

    I personally bill my jobs by coffee consumption.  In theory there are jobs as low as 1 coffee per day, but eight is more usual.  In fact I've never billed a 1 cup/day job.

    The last director I worked drank like it was water.

    I personally have 3 espresso's during a day.

    But it's really not to keep me up.


    Anybody watch 60 mins on sleeping?

    Re: Avid and Coffee

     10 years ago I was drinking something like 12 mugs a day.....I now drink about 5...... And no headaches on days off......that's because I drink more coffee on days off.
