Do you drink coffee? Why or why not?

Coffee for me is like wine for other people. I love to smell it and savor it, and even though I don’t think it’s the best thing to drink if one is low in iron and it dehydrates you, I will probably always drink it.
What about you? Do you drink it or don’t drink it for specific reasons (health, religion, don’t like it, etc.)?

    I drink it so I don’t go to prison for killing coworkers.

    I have a funny story regarding my coffee habit.

    I don't drink coffee, but that's because even the smell of it nauseates me. I do drink other beverages with caffeine (tea and diet colas).

    Coffee breath is about as bad as morning breath.

    I drink it for the flavor and don't care whether it's caffeinated or not. It pairs well with certain foods. I do love the smell of it as well.

    As for hydration, yes, that has long been debunked. It would take being off caffeine for several weeks and drinking a few cups before you would feel the dehydrating effects. Regular caffeine users don't experience this.

    I never developed a liking for or habit of coffee. Then I started limiting or avoiding caffeine about 20 years ago. I'd rather drink other things.

    Love the flavor and aroma. Like a little caffeine before my workouts. Is high in antioxidants and no, it does not dehydrate you.

    My Grandson and I have the "I can't even stand the smell of coffee" gene. My Parents and Children are all coffee drinkers. The coffee-hatred gene must skip a generation!

    I love it. It's that simple. I think I drink too much of it due to caffeine (am trying to convince myself to drink more herbal tea or decaf, but coffee is too easy).
