I love to drink coffee. I can definitely say this without any hesitation. And not just those expensive coffee or the expensive place to drink this– I just love coffee. And I guess this is one of the traits that I got from my father, since my physical appearance is attributed to the genes of my mother and though my Math-driven brain is from my father, I guess there are some loopholes inside of me that is full of paradox and the like. Yeah, the habit of drinking more than 2 cups of coffee is not an addiction for me but rather—err, it runs in the blood.
My father would start and end his day with a cup of coffee; yes, you didn’t read it wrong, my father drinks coffee before going to sleep. And the 2 cups are just his minimum, he drinks coffee during the morning break and the afternoon break and sometimes during lunch or after dinner or between snacks. Take your pick.

I get drowsy after lunch so I had to drink coffee to stay awake in the office.

Trying to lessen the caffeine was a bad idea after all, I guess. I had mood swings, sleeping problem, out of focus problem and some sort. So, as a general medication for myself, I decided to lift my punishment. I drink coffee whenever I want to. I still count how many cups I consume per day but I don’t follow a pattern anymore.
One thing that I found out is the fact that I really do enjoy any food with coffee. Yeah. Any food with coffee. Chocolates. Biscuits. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Dinner Date. Lunch Date. There’s always that 1/10 probability that I would not order coffee when on a date. And I stick to brewed one. It relaxes me. It makes me feel happy and contented after a heavy meal. You can generally say that my dates are like coffee-sessions, just scattered cof
