Coffee.

5/21/2018. The day the indie company owned and operated in New Zealand known as GGG died. Whether you want to admit it or not.
I go up and down with the old beanjuice. If I'm in creative-overflow mode, I can do 3+ cups a day and be fine. At other times, even one a day can leave me a jittery wreck. Fairly recently we scrapped the french press because we were making too much coffee a day, and it was way too strong. I'm not ashamed to admit we use a pod machine which has the illusion of strong taste but is, I'm fairly sure, pretty weak.

And then there's the now somewhat-forbidden fruit of coffee+tobacco, which, along with a whole hell of a lot of coca-cola, was my filthy diet of choice back in the late 90s when I lived in New Jersey and Delaware. As Stephen King points out, tobacco is an *incredible* assist for writing -- it's just killing you at the same time. It never occurred to me back then that was I taking a legal form of the same sort of chemical shortcut I normally scorn in creative-types. That feels like another life altogether now...

These days the worst thing about coffee for me is it never picks me up at the time. If I'm drowsy at 7pm (this happens WAY TOO FUCKING MUCH THESE DAYS), a coffee might stave off the post-dinner nods but it's guaranteed to have me perky as shit at 2am.

Sometimes I'll switch to tea. We have a ridiculous variety in this place because girlfriend is girlfriend. Anything from Korean Hydrangea tea to peppermint to some weird mix called Stockholm blend. Chamomile is probably my favourite. Peppermint is meant to settle the guts but I find it leaves me a little bloated.

...but I'll always go back to coffee, because it's the easiest, cheapest simulation to the spice melange as we'll probably ever get.

Fuck we have some dangerously stupid people on this forum. Please don't procreate.
Charan, I have a PHD in ingesting nicotine, chain smoked for 8 years but found much better and stronger alternatives, if you want some tips you know where to find me (behind the grocery store with that bottle in my hand, remember to wake me up after 1 PM if I pass out).

Hahaha, delightful. No, I was never addicted and stopping was effortless for me. Seems my hopeless addictions start and end with the internet. :)

You're just not trying hard enough! You need to care about your poison of choice, but on the other hand I trade addictions with ease - all it takes to forget about one is to find a new and better one. 15 years ago I kicked amphetamines of all kind because I discovered the magic of booze that was somewhat off of my radar, forgot about cigarettes immediately once I found stronger and significantly healthier sources of nicotine. I wish weed was legal over here and I wish I didn't turn into a grinning barbarian idiot when smoking it, I'd trade booze for it any day if it worked for me as some describe (Joe Rogan for example). Traded internet addiction for heavy outdoor cardio stuff like winter mountaineering, wintery traill running and in general all black metal activities, I just want a newer replacement for whisky haha

I don't drink coffee, at all. I LOVE the smell of it though.
However, I just don't function properly unless I had a cup of cocoa in the morning. I know that that's seriously weird, but there's nothing I can do about it.
Other than that I drink some tee every now and then. Almost any kind, except a lot of the black tea flavour variants, most are too bitter for me. Yes, even if I don't let them in the water for too long. I just don't like bitter stuff.
I make dumb builds, therefore I am.

Cocoa contains a substance which I can't spell now but it does give a buzz equal to caffeine for some.

Hmm...

Better ban them, just to be safe.
