|Not the way to start the day.|
I can give up coffee if I want. I don't have an addiction to it and if I am running late in the morning, I can skip the ritual and function normally. The issue with giving it up is, that there are as many benefits to drinking a couple of cups of coffee as there are possible detriments. The two big ones for me are increased brain activity (ability to concentrate) and the predictable and almost immediate laxative effect of the coffee. For a guy who spends so much of his life on the road, you cannot understate the latter benefit, so I suspect that coffee and I will continue our relationship for a lifetime. My wife, for the record, does NEED her coffee in the am, and I generally don't speak to her until the first cup has been emptied. That's the secret to the long, successful marriage in our home, you don't poke the bear, especially in the morning, and never before she's had her coffee. That's the biggest reason I need a reliable coffee maker.
