Wondering what other brokers consumption habits are, since we all work in a relatively aggressive profession that requires constant high energy.

I, for one, have weaned myself to a pot of coffee in the morning and a sugar free Red Bull in the afternoon (Was at like 4 pots a day). What keeps you wired all day?

I've got that Bottomless cup from Brueggar's.  Started in October and it runs through the rest of the year.  I get about three large's a day.  Then at night, when I need to stay up late to work on something, a little MD.

WTF??!!

You drink an entire pot of coffee, and you USED TO drink 4??  Is that a joke?
 
Thank God that Red Bull is sugar free....

Usually I start with Starbucks and then move to Kettle One by noon.



Liar. Anyone who drinks Ketel One knows how to spell it.

No, no joke. Thought that was actually a little light. I have a good friend that has between 6-8. I would think that was an exaggeration but I've seen him do it.

As you can see, I'm not much of a morning person.

POTS of coffee, or CUPS of coffee?  That's just insane.

I think there is just an age difference... I think the older you are the more coffee your generation drank.
 
I don't drink coffee(smells wonderful in those stores, but tastes like sh*t). I am part of the pop, monster, redbull generation.

Bagels. I drink about a dozen cups every morning- stop around 1pm. TOTALLY ADDICTED- I cannot stop. Life is hell and then you die.

I don't know how many gallons of coffee it is, but it's at least a dozen trips to the can.

I drink 4-6 pint glass of black tea made with two tea bags each. In addition, I drink 2-3 Double Espresso every day.




Jan 26, 2010 10:28 am

What is wrong with you people?  Do you guys get any sleep??  Holy crap.

 
Jack, does that make you a double tea-bagger?
 
Sorry, couldn't resist.

B24  .


As to sleep  I get around 6-7 hours per day.

I have cut down on my caffeine consumption. In collage, I use to drink 4-6 double espresso per day, plus maybe 6-8 cups of coffee. ( I did not sleep a lot back then maybe 4-6 hours per day)


Jan 26, 2010 12:00 pm

Wow.  That much caffeine would find me looking like Gary Busey on Red Bull.

Jan 26, 2010 12:25 pm

I agree with Chief.  Coffee smells great, but tastes like crap.  I'll drink it every so often, but by the time I'm done doctoring it up, it might as well be hot chocolate. 

 
I have a QT (regional quick stop chain) 32oz Coke every morning.  Once in a while I'll get a second soda in the afternoon, but only if I'm really dragging or if I have lunch with a buddy.  The rest of the day is water only.  My kidneys start to hurt if I have more soda than that.  I can't imagine what 4 pots of coffee does to your kidneys.
