I've done it many times.

I drink a lot of coffee and periodically I would get to the point where I had to stop for a while. I'd switch to decaf , go through horrible withdrawal some times and then start the hi-Test back up.

Haven't had to do that for several years though.

I am always a gentleman.

the ONLY thing that cured the headaches that ensued was coffee... again Embarassed

The original link that Nicola had posted is no longer working. The page is not there anymore. It was this one.(http://www.squidoo.com/CoffeeHarm)

Since this thread probably wont grow old, I'm providing another link if anyone would like to read something similar about the danger of coffee.

As I had replied in this thread time ago I took also the challenge and I do not drink percolated coffee any longer.

Before you go any further with this thread you may want to check the links below out first:

Stephen A. Cherniske is a fraud: aka "Caffeine Blues By Stephen Cherniske MS"
http://www.mlmwatch.org/06FTC/Oasis/oasisftc1.html
"Cherniske represents himself as a "renowned health educator" and nutrition consultant. A recent magazine article states that he has a background in biochemistry and is a trained nutritionist and a member of the National Academy of Research Biochemists (NARB). However, two of his credentials are as questionable as the claims challenged by the FTC. His"master's degree in nutrition" was obtained in 1982 from Columbia Pacific University, a nonaccredited correspondence school whose California operation was shut down by court order in 2001. NARB's membership certificate describes it as "An academy devoted to preserving and dispensing valuable, established and reasonable biochemical research certified that . . . . is an elected member dedicated to untiring research for the truth in behalf of those served in the field of health." However, the only requirement when I picked up a membership in 1992 was payment of a $72 fee."

And this about Naturalnews.com http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/NaturalNews
NaturalNews.com (formerly Newstarget) is an anti-science conspiracy website founded by Mike "the Health Ranger" Adams. The site promotes almost every sort of medical woo known to human history, though it specializes in vaccine denialism,[1] AIDS/HIV denial,[2] quack cancer medicine[3] and conspiracy theories about modern medicine.[4] Even other quacks think it's a quack site.[5] The site has recently broadened to include extreme environmentalism and conspiracy theorizing about Obama and gun control.
If you cite NaturalNews on any matter whatsoever, you are almost certainly wrong.

Every one against conventional mainstream medicine and facts not associated with lobbyist companies, is been and always will be deemed as quackery.

This of course in the US where even vitamins can get banned or natural products as simple as Stevia cannot be marketed as food... while in Europe, New Zealand or Australia people gets saved with "our quackery".

I don't totally disagree with you but when someone claims to be an expert and then I find out they got their degree from a diploma mill I have to suspect them as not being scientifically strong and he was also involved in an MLM marketing scam ??????

Reeks of MONEY MOTIVATION and preying on people's fears about their health to me.

Scripwriter, I do not know about the Doc (Stephen A. Cherniske) that you mention and I didn't bring him up, also of course I absolutely agree regarding the "diploma mill", but for our sake we can only look at studies from reputable companies and not from those that were paid by people whom have interest in it.

Who was involved in a MLM scam Mike Adams?

It's sad that we have to search and hand pick news that can be of help to us because of the constant mud thrown on it.

Charlotte Gerson she cross the border every day to run a clinic that would be illegal here. However people come from every part of the world to it... called quackery.

Her father, Dr. Max Gerson... called quackery.

Gary Null... called quackery.

MLM scam was MaxCell BioScience, Inc., also doing business as Oasis Wellness Network, and its president, Stephen A. Cherniske.

The link you provided http://www.naturalnews.com/012352_caffeine_coffee.html uses Stephen A. Cherniske as the expert and his book as evidence of the evils of drinking coffee.

Cherniske is the author of Caffeine Blues about evils of coffee. Another prey on the public's fear - the public for the most part are too lazy to do their own research. SO they bombarded by the likes of Dr Oz and his free recommendation of quack crap because he gets paid millions for saying it the greatest stuff in the world - no different than the lobbyist for the drug companies.

Real science has shown that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are:less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and dementia with fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes.

I look to follow the money - who stands the most to gain. And there's special place in hell for some of the drug companies right alone with the Dr Oz's of this world.

Take care

Thank you to enlighten me on Stephen A. Cherniske.

Your above comment is true, but we live in a world of purported communications.

The wines, especially the reds with their alcohol and tannin are good too. Some supplements would be good for anyone to take regardless of their health. Coffees and teas too. The problems arise when we don’t know their therapeutic dosages. Four fluid ounces of wine could be enough, more it could be more harm than good. Ok now ask anyone how much they drank the last time they had wine and in this case we (approximately) do know the therapeutic dosage.

As I wrote on another thread, on the same subject; I used to think that I had (WED) restless legs syndrome. A doctor confirmed it. Before embarking on a drug regimen I tried with another approach. I eliminated the percolated coffee; I do have an espresso once per day, not necessarily every day. The “neurological disorder” disappeared, also I wake up in the morning refreshed and not like a zombie as I used to (I didn’t know it was also the coffee) and a few other positive changes that I have noted. Plus I do not drink milk any longer since I do not use it in the coffee. That to me is a good plus; I don’t feel that adults (probably not even children) should drink cow milk.

On another note. It was and still is hard to eliminate the coffee as I can walk around all the day with a cup in my hand. Not just as an addicted to it as I have drunk great coffees. I used to grind the coffee beans just before brewing it. I know how to make a perfect latte or frothy cappuccino.

Be well, and don’t drink (haha) too much coffee.

You are spot on about the therapeutic dose. One person's drink is another's poison. Coffee has no affect on me, same as water I drink too much I pee too much. However alcohol is another story - two beers and my jaw goes numb. If you're ever looking for a cheap date call me.

Ah, doctors! I use to have a GP who said to me one time "Why do you come to me if you're not going to take my advice?"

I told him I was no good at a diagnosis and he was. I told him I use his diagnosis and then I check to see what the nontoxic way is to to treat me. He liked that and several times he called me and asked ME what I thought about such and such. LOL.

And be well yourself.

I used to drink too much Starbucks and it was giving me a sour stomach because it is so acidy. Now I make my own and I only have one or two cups a day. I'm afraid I can't go cold turkey.

I've always tried to live by the rule that there's no cess like excess. Of course there are those who would suggest that might be an excessive attitude. Could that be excessive criticism? This is mind boggling. I could use a cup of coffee.

I became addicted to caffeine pills (which I used because I was doing 25 hours of school, 35 hours of work plus studying per week), and went through some really evil withdrawal symptoms.

De-caff is fine, honestly, my mum's been drinking it for years and had no problem with her kidneys or anything. But if you're gonna go back to drinking coffee after, I'd suggest making it decaff; even a 97% reduction in caffeine for every drink is better than having half the drinks with 100% of the relative caffeine! :D

My 2 cents

Make love not horcruxes! >^_^<

Check out my stories, you'd be surprised what I can do :)

I feel that if I gave up coffee the local economy would be dealt a savage blow. I personally help prop up the local Starbucks and the makers of K cups.

Don't believe everything you read on the net.
There are sites that say coffee is good for you- who do you believe.
For me it's 3 or 4 double expresso a day. Sometimes with a dash if hot water.
Itallian coffee is by far superior to filtered coffee. In fact the best cup of coffee I had in the US was in MacDonald's, now that is saying something.
Starbucks even closed most of its shops in Australia because most people considered it crap.
If I were to give up coffee for more than a day I would be unbearable.

There is no good reason to give up coffee. Perhaps cut back on the amount, but to quit completely is unthinkable to me.
