Why Do so Many People Love Coffee? I Hated Coffee Before, But Now I Love it

Do you ever ask yourself why so many people love coffee? Well, I never realized it before but now I do. There are so many coffee drinkers and so many types of coffee. It can become very addicting to. When I was younger everyone would sit around and drink coffee and I would be the odd ball that would drink a glass of milk, juice, or hot tea. They would make pot after pot and I thought to myself how can they drink that stuff. It gives you bad breath, makes you hyper, and once you get addicted you can't stop.

I hated that I felt like the odd ball everytime the pot would go on because I knew I was out of the group of coffee drinkers. I wanted to feel like I fit in with everyone but I hated coffee and tried to think of a good way I can love it. I tried a little sip one day all dolled up with tons of sugar and cream. The powdered creamora. I thought to myself, hmmmm... this is ok but I still can't see myself drinking cup after cup like everyone else.

People would have cups in the morning, afternoon, and at night! I laughed and said I will stick to my mountain dew. This is the caffeine I loved growing up. I loved it because it was nice and ice-cold and sweet. Coffee, blah!

Well after I got married and had my first child Jeremy I seem to notice that my desire for certain things to eat and drink have changed. I always had people who came over to visit to see the baby and to visit me just because they knew I was a stay home mom so I always had company.

Well what do you think the first thing I always ask someone or you should ask someone? Exactly. Would you like something to drink? Coffee, tea, soda, etc... I always ended up putting on a pot of coffee even though I never drank it.

So everytime I put that pot on, I would still try and doll up that cup to say "finally I drank a whole cup of coffee". I didn't realize how much coffee I started drinking from all those cups I would try everytime I put that pot on.

One day I realized I do like coffee enough to have one cup when a pot is made. The sugar started fading out.. The more I liked it I hated the sugar in it. I started drinking a lot of flavored coffees like hazelnut, chocolate, or irish cream. If I put on regular coffee for my company I had bought flavored creamers for me so I can enjoy that cup of coffee with them.

Everyone ask, how do you drink you coffee flavored or with sugar? I said my preference and at least I am enjoying a cup with you. A few years passed I'm 24 and now I love coffee with just a shot of cream, no sugar, and no flavor but still made coffee a little weak.

I am now 43 years old and can't go a day without a good cup of coffee. I like it strong, no sugar, and very little cream or sometimes black. I tried to wean myself off to cut down on caffeine, but I noticed one of the side effects of not drinking a cup a day was serious migraines. I read up on how to wean off but I don't see me doing it.

It said to drink tea and then switch to decaf black tea. I guess I will always look forward to that cup of coffee in the morning but be careful because too much is not really good. I can honestly now say I realize why the pots were always on and I thought people were nuts, but now I am one of them. I hated coffee before, but now I love it.
