    Too much of anything can be bad for health.

    If you are taking 1 or 2 cups a day you should be OK. Just drink more water in parallel.

    You can find more information here:

    Coffee is a provened diuretic and in substantial quantities can be harmful in the long run.

    Should consider sugar in the coffee. Dun put too much sugar in the coffee.

    I hardly drink a cup of coffee in a week, unless the office pantry runs out of drinks.
    Usually go for green tea or chrysanthemum tea.

    Lower coffee consumption to 1-2 per day would not be too harmful for the body.

    Too much of anything is bad for you.

    I used to smoke... but now I have quit.
    Coffee is my only source of stimulant now, and I only have 2 cups a day.
    It perks me up and keep me happy. More importantly, I love the taste.
    Coffee is a diuretic... but I drink so much water, it doesn't really matter.
    Coffee is also a mild laxative. So I almost never get constipation.

    So I say... give me coffee or give me death!

    Thanks.

    For what it's worth, it was very very difficult. I succeeded only after 2 or 3 tries. So, no shame if you fail... just don't give up.

    I've been smoke free for about 3-4 years now.

    I did not quit to save money... but rather the tar was weighing my lungs down. I felt congested from time to time. I needed to keep quite fit to feel generally ok. When I fell sick, it felt like hell, especially when you need to smoke when you are having a cough. I'm glad those days are behind me.

    But... smoking was actually damn shiok.

    A friend of mine once told me that he had too much blood in his caffeine system

    I take 2 cups a day. Used to take 4-5 cups. Office has one of those machines that grinds the beans and then makes the coffee fresh. I recently found out why I get headaches on from Saturday night until Monday night. It was because I did not get my fix during weekends!!

    Since then I cut down a little as I didn't want this kind of dependency.

    They say coffee combined with exercise may help to reduce skin cancer!
