    Is there a limit to how many cups of tea or coffee we can drink in a day?

    I have had 3 cups of watered down black coffee today and was wondering if there is a limit. It's the first time I've drunk black coffee in years as I'm normally a tea drinker, but couldn't face black tea, but obviously don't want to over do it.

    Thanks

    There is no limit.

    However, Cambridge suggest you do not have more than you would normally, because of your body not being used to the caffeine levels.

    I remember getting a 'sick' high when I was SSing in the early days and thet was because I over did the coffee.

    Apart from that, you are fine.

    Good luck

    True. But for me, it's not quite the same. It's like having low alcohol beer - pointless :D :D :D

    And not in the early days. I think the book suggests you just carry on as normal.

    It does Karion. This is to prevent withdrawal symptoms (i.e. headaches etc)

    I've definitely had caffeine high!! OMG not good :eek: And no, don't switch to caffeine free in the initial stages as it's too much of a shock for your system
