    About a month or six weeks ago, I started getting a cup of coffee every morning at work, around 8:30 a.m. -- two hours after I get in. Usually a 16 ouncer.

    I've never been a coffee drinker, mainly because I was never awake early enough, and I cannot -- will not -- drink coffee any other time of day. Ugh.

    Anyway....one cup is all I drink. Definitely gets me through the day.

    How much coffee do you fine folks need to get you through the day?

    I have a cup every morning. Have to have it too. In the winter when I'm travelling, I'll get a hot beverage as opposed to a Diet Coke or something, but other than that I don't drink much coffee.

    I try not to drink it every day since I don't like spending four bucks every day (the only coffee I can stand is a cappuccino with chocolate and a little bit of mint, and it's kinda pricey even at the family-owned place I go). But I try to get some kind of caffeine in me every morning, whether it's coffee, Mountain Dew.

    Some days, you know, a Sparks.

    I hear ya, Sneed. Fortunately, the large coffee here at work is only $1.60. And, I'm the opposite of you. The only coffee I can drink is straight regular.

    When I worked nights in the journo biz, I drank a lot of Diet Dew. So good.

    A double expresso (no sugar) after breakfast and once in a while another double in mid-afternoon.

    one 12 oz. latte daily when at home. sometimes, maybe once a week, a second one in the afternoon. when i work from home, it's easy to have that second cup more regularly.

    on the road, generally two lattes, sometimes three, a day. depending on how long my days are.

    I used to drink the stuff -- at least two cups -- every morning when I was in high school.

    Now, I normally only drink it at church or if I stop and get an iced coffee at McDonalds or somewhere.

    What's that, like 5-6 cups? More?

    I'm guessing you're pretty regular. :)

    When I'm in town, one large from Dunkin' Donuts every morning.

    Half the sheriff's department usually is in there and it's time of the year I'll walk over and give them my annual plea: If there was a day you wanted to write 500 traffic tickets, all you have to do is sit along that road right outside the window for all the cars zipping past stopped school buses with their flashing red lights on.

    These guys could wipe out the county deficit in a month.

    On assignment once, I ate breakfast at a little shack. Had about five cups of coffee while waiting forever for my food. I was so friggin' wired, it made Beavis look sane.

    I thought coffee drank Ryan Sonner to get through the day.
