    So...Im trying to get fit for university, so i have been hitting the gym regularly


    [s]dumbells[/.
    However, I find that on days where i drink coffee before my workout i have more energy, and I don't get tired as quickly compared to days where I don't drink coffee. The coffee just gives me that bit of an oomph( if you know what I mean ) Im aware that coffee contains caffeine which is a drug, but drinking a cup of coffee a day is not bad right? Or am I at risk of becoming a caffeine addict?

    A cup of coffee a day is not going to hurt you or turn you into some sort of raging addict.

    I assure you, you'll be fine
    But you could always try green tea, it has caffeine but it's considered to be quite good for you.

    make sure you eat something before you have green tea though it can make you feel sick on an empty stomach. green tea is lovely though

    It's the long term effects that I am worried about.

    Form one cup a day? I honestly doubt you'll suffer any ill effect from drinking one cup of coffee a day. Millions of people around the world drink much more than that and aren't adversely affected by it.

    One cup of coffee every day is not an addiction that's perfectly acceptable and anyway most people drink up to three or four in their working day

    Drinking one cup of coffee won't make you an addict

    When I was doing exam revision, I was averaging 6/7 cups a day, and still managed to come away without an addiction
