    Coffee, two sweetener packets with cream in the morning, unsweetened tea for the rest of the day.

    Cafe con leche. The Cuban breakfast of champions!

    Was never a big fan of tea. I have given it several tries, but I think I pick the wrong brew. I like my coffee strong. Perhaps the little herbal teas I'm trying aren't cutting it? Anybody recommend a strong brew?

    Are you in America? Because American tea is usually a lot weaker than even average British tea. For a strong brand, try Yorkshire tea, it's popular so you should be able to find it across the pond .

    Everything American is weaker than anything British. True fact.

    Cue exaggerated and dramatized eye-roll.

    Except their military? :D

    (and their agriculture, but that's outside of most folks' attention)

    If I could... 6-10 cups of coffee from around 7-11 am. Then continue the coffee or my own mocha's.

    I don't need AA, afterall I'm not addicted to acohol at all. Alcohol is addicted to me. 

    You merely adopted the alcohol, I was born in it, molded by it.

    So much java. Two pots a day for too long. Sleeping schedule was so messed up after awhile that I'm still a night owl. Now I have about 3-4 cups after waking, and switch to water immediately after. My teeth will thank me.

    So maybe two things, not sure about the military because SAS. Sure USA may have a bigger force, but lb for lb UK wins.

    I hear that. I work nights and normally can't sleep all that well during the day so it takes about 3 or 4 cups and as many cigarettes before I can call myself awake

    Aye, the plan I had was to adapt and get a night shift job, but I realized I like the night time because I'm not obligated to do much during those hours. Not about to ruin that with workin' xP

    And yeah cigs are definitely in high numbers when I wake nowadays, but I wasn't gonna promote that xD

    Coffee in the morning. It takes me a double espresso to get going then a half cup of regular coffee at 10:30. 

    Green or black tea with lunch.

    A single espresso shot after lunch

    Green or black tea after that for the rest of the day.

    Sweet tea is like the blood in my veins. I like coffee and all, but I don't actually have a coffee maker... so... yeah.

    ....and then more coffee....

    I have a bitchin Tassimo machine and at the weekend I usually abuse it until I'm vibrating and can't even use a keyboard.

    I'm with Phil, I like to chuck a couple of faggies in when I'm belting beans. Something about coffee and fags...definitely my biggest vice.
