Not old enough to drink, and I've seen what happens when you drink too much, but that doesn't happen with soda (or at least as bad).

Coffee, in the mornings.
Alchohol maybe once in a blue moon on the weekends. Too much of that stuff, tears up your stomach.

I used to drink FAR too much caffeine... about 64+ ounces of soda/tea per day at least for well over 30 years. I had to stop on doctors orders.

I've never drank alcohol, so currently, it would be neither.

Definitely alcohol. I have issues with caffeine. If I drink more than about a can of coke's worth within a couple days, I get crippling sinus headaches. I generally don't touch the stuff for that reason. One side benefit though, is that if I do need some, it hits me a lot harder than most people, since I don't have any tolerance for it. One cup of coffee and I'm wired

I prefer alcohol but since I am a recovering alcoholic, it's not an option.
I drink lots of coffee.
This for me too, except I do sodapop more than coffee anymore.

If you never drank alchohol, you definetily have some serious will power.

I drink a couple diet cokes in the evenings. Caffeine from pop never affects me the same as coffee.
I wish it did. Then I could get my fix faster in the morning. :)

I'm a coffee addict and I do like a drink every now and again (more now than again).

How about some Irish Creme in coffee? Yum!


On a side note - good for you, Barbbtx! :thumbs:

Well I drink plenty of both... I also have dimethylaminoethanol which synergises with caffeine and increases its potency. And theanine to counter the jitters if i have too much lmao!

I have a coffee addiction. Without it I go into withdrawals and get headaches. I only drink coffee, hardly any teas or soft drinks. I've only really tasted alcohol 3 times in my life. And 2 of those times were just to taste it and not to get drunk. I haven't had any alcohol in like 3 years.
