    i was wondering of everyone's coffee tolerance!
    basically i have more coffee in my veins than blood. i love coffee. i drink like huge mugs of black coffee or else i have like 4 espresso shots in the mornings. but sometimes if i have too much coffee my hands begin to shake and i dont stop shaking my legs and i begin to hear too much. to this day i have never hallucinated from coffee though. so i was wondering how much coffee u guys have before u start having effects and what effects do u get

    I probably average between 6 and 8 cups a day. More when I'm working.

    I've probably beaten 14. I use an oversized mug which is equal to maybe two normal cups and, at work, often have doubles. I've been drinking coffee since I was maybe 5 or 6 and am a large man so I guess I have pretty high tolerance. Essentially when you are a seasoned coffee addict drinking it only maintains a baseline of energy rather than providing much extra. Still, much less harmful than my other addictions :lol:

    Caffeine or coffee won't make you hallucinate. Too much and you could get anxiety and nervousness, nausea, racing heartrate and thoughts and all that stuff, but you won't start seeing or hearing things.

    Wow. The first time I had coffee was when I was 8, started drinking it regularly around 3 years ago. If I have anymore than 4 then I won't be able to draw a straight line even with a ruler because my hands would be shaking lol.

    Usually a fair few cups/mugs. The annoyance comes if I'm on campus all day, and I can/have spent about £10 on coffee in one day on campus :/

    You'd be much better off drinking some alcohol or taking pot than doing that.

    So you binge on coffee to recreate it.. a noble man once said religion is about morals not laws. Just trying to understand why someone would want to drink that much coffee knowing the damage it can do
