Was drinking far too much, maybe 6 or 7 mugs a day, possibly more.

Gave it up 2 days ago, haven't had a 'movement' since, in desperation I drank 2 coffees tonight, feel normal again but still no progress in the lav department!

This is not going well!!!

How many is an ok amount to drink?

I normally had one first thing on an empty stomach. Not a good start.

When I got to work I'd have one with a colleague - I enjoy this one.

Then I'd just drink it all day. Digestive system had gone to sh*t! Boom!!

Might have one a day, see how that goes.

I recently stopped for a few weeks for various reasons and it does definitely upset the rhythm. Rhythm back now I'm drinking it again.

300 mg of caffeine is the stated max every where....but actually the proper research shows that no one knows what the max is.

Personally I go by how bad my withdrawals are...headaches less than a few hours after a coffee and I know I need to curtail it.

One in house, one at work, another when colleague got in and brewed up, so 3 by 9.

Depending on contact time, 3 or 4 during day. Then if working late (till 8) could be 3 between 4-8.

That's actually 10 - that's crazy!!!!

The rhythm is gonnae get me!!

I am not drinking regular tea at the moment as I can't drink it black xx( so I have a cup of regular coffee first thing. I sometimes have a 2nd cup but then have decaff. The Millicano decaff is rather nice. Have you tried just having 1 or 2 coffees and then switching to unleaded?

Unleaded is just as bad on the digestion system.

I switched from strong black coffee as my regular cuppa to green tea and I feel much better for it, the strange thing is green tea contains pretty much the same amount of caffeine. (I don't like milk)

I'm a pot of tea first man. It's got caffeine in it but it doesn't dehydrate. A couple of hours later and I'm ready for a couple of mugs of coffee from the cafétière. It keeps me going until the 2nd teatime pot of tea.

I have a large mug of coffee first thing then drink tea, the occasional Pepsi Max and ovaltine at bed time. My coffee machine has a timer so my coffee's ready when I get up. I used to drink way more coffee but have managed to cut back.
