did you know the coffee beans actually come from a fruit? and the plant produces that fruit as a natural pesticide to kill off bugs that try to eat it. essentially man discovered a natural pesticide and found out that it gets you jacked but isn't strong enough to kill you like a bee.

Yeah, I knew about half of that! I recall reading about how coffee beans were consumed before they tried roasting them and making a tea outta them.

A rich history with coffee beans. And I love my coffee. I drink every work day, a full pot.

I'm not sure how I don't have withdrawal when I don't drink it...

Like, I need it for work and all, but on weekends or vacations, on feel fine without it, despite 5+ years straight of heavy drinking.

Guess I'm lucky, as I've heard of many getting headaches without it.

The only drugs I like other than caffeine are Kratom, Alcohol... Very occasionally marijuana (used to be a stoner, but began to her anxiety, so stopped enjoying being high).

lol eventually you'll get the headaches if you keep it up and/or start increasing your consumption. I've started noticing them lately, sometimes I will just forget to make a new thing of coffee for a day and start getting headaches. and yeah, stick to the basics, like someone up above said. water, coffee, wine, beer, spirits, pots not too bad, its definitely got a use. but you can over-do anything.

That's a fact. Life is about moderation, and that goes for everything in life.

I used to drink and smoke a ton when I was younger. Luckily I grew out of that college age phase, and became more of a sober man.

I used to get extremely wild when I'd drink. Not mean or violent. Just very high energy, silly, and fun. People used to love drinking with me haha.

But hey, I'm glad I don't party so much.

I've just started getting into drinking straight spirits. Was never a huge drinker, definitely had a phase, was more of a pot head like you said, experimented with the psychedelics, all that. Try dishing out a little bit of cash on a nice bottle of bourbon or scotch, and sip on a glass of that on a night off. So nice.

I'm over that hill. Now I get horribly caffeine Withdrawals if I DON'T constantly hit the coffee/tea. In fact, it's almost time now...

lol I used to make a pot before bed, and could never figure out why I didn't sleep well and would always grind my teeth =/

The headaches are normally from lack of water/hydration.

That is normal, and most don't drink a lot of water when they drink a large amount.

Headaches can be from hyper stress tension from being too hyped up as well. Just depends on the person.
