Drinking coffee is like drinking mud

How do people drink the stuff? I see it in logs every day. Sheer bewilderment.

Um, well there's a rumour going around that it's addictive. But you didn't hear that from me...

You know, I never used to like it. I started drinking it when I was about 30, to stay awake. And I gradually got to like it -- it's an acquired taste, certainly.

At my first encounters with hot drinks and with alcohol, I hated all of them and have never touched them since. And that sometimes makes me feel like I'm not part of the known universe, socailly speaking. Oh well.

I was a tea drinker from childhood, and when I moved to Scotland as an adult, the natives were so surprised by my aversion to coffee that I'd be introduced as "this is Katie, she's American but she doesn't drink coffee".

I just started drinking the stuff 2 months ago, at age 36, with a LOT of milk. I made the switch because I can't stand tea with fake sugar, and I take a lot of sugar. Because I didn't have a coffee habit, I'm able to drink it with sweet-n-low without thinking that it doesn't taste right. In addition to ditching empty calories (sugar) and replacing it with half as many good calories (skim milk), I find it surprisingly filling, so it helps curb my appetite.

By the way, OP, if you're thinking about trying coffee again, don't go to Starbucks. That stuff is pretty harsh for beginners!

I can't stand people that are judgmental about ridiculous things. Why don't you sip on an espresso somewhere comfy and people watch. Its sheer enjoyment. And even if you don't want to do that, try to walk in someone else's shoes.

Lighten up

well, luckily, drinking coffee is not a requirement for living. stick to what you like and try not to be rude about things that other people like. simple.

When people are addicted to addictive drugs like caffiene they tend to get very defensive about their habit. Luckily coffee is largely harmless. It is brewed from a plant after all. If you take your coffee black, then you avoid the poison of cream or milk. Coffee with cream is for baby cows. ;)
