I’m just intrigued really, it’s probably the one thing I have actually never tried to kick, but I have a feeling I’d be a much better person without it.
I like the stimulant effect for everything… work, getting up in the morning, exercise, just generally, but I’m also convinced I could get a better buzz without it, and there would also be a load of other benefits with stress, headaches etc.
I’m amazed you could sleep after all that @emma1
In terms of amounts, I have one beltingly strong coffee every morning as soon as I’m awake, even if I end up going back to bed until its the right time to actually get up… I use so much instant coffee in that drink that I pour it from the jar, and dont even bother with the spoon any more… I’d say probably 10-12 teaspoons worth in that one drink.
I’ll then have 1 delonghi normal strength barista style coffee a bit later, or another instant - but if I have the instant as strong again, my personality gets very gnarly very quickly and I can be a twat to be around!
