Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

4:00 pm is pushing it for me. Now that I need to wake up by 4:30 am, I am trying to cut down to one cup of coffee around 6:00 am but it is very hard.

16oz of coffee and 4 shots of espresso over the course of an hour. More than that and the world starts to go strange.

I used to drink a can of Jolt or Monster energy drink every morning at work (I'm at work at 7:30am, but I had a tendency to be up until 1am or so a lot because my family are all night owls). It got to the point where I built up a tolerance to caffeine and it didn't affect me too much anymore. Coworkers would see my 24-oz Jolt and say "You're gonna be bouncing off the walls!" to which I would reply "No, I won't. But I might not fall asleep."

It's nice to want a cup of coffee and not need it. I normally don't drink caffeine and I get about 7 hours of sleep every night...so I won't need caffeine.

Woot is so great: buy stuff, learn about personal wellness, build community.

Exactly. I cut off coffee at midnight and get off work at 6:00 AM.

Off caffeine at 12:00pm - on the beer wagon at 12:01pm.

I can have it around the clock because no matter how much caffeine I drink, I still go right to sleep. I'm not a coffee drinker and prefer tea.

An addictive stimulant that causes withdraw symptoms when consumed habitually and stopped abruptly. Huh, sounds like a drug, doesn't it?

I had to give it up because I got a migraine every Saturday... from NOT drinking enough of it. Now I enjoy some wonderful decafs without the physical need. Far more pleasure :-)

What wonderful decafs have you found? I tend to agree with David Letterman, who refers to decaf coffee as "useless warm brown water". Seriously, what brands do you like?

I picked there is no cut-off since I also work nights and get my caffeine from tea, so don't suffer the effects like most coffee drinkers. I do occasionally get headaches if I had been consuming a lot of tea and then drastically cut back, but I drink less at work than I used to when juggling full time work and full time school.
