The Daily Life And Thoughts Of A Coffee Addict

Waking up to the smell of coffee each morning is what led me in falling in love with coffee. I started to drink coffee when I was in high school and it only started out as a morning habit, but then led into something that I cannot live without...literally. There are people who are coffee drinkers, people who enjoy coffee and then coffee addicts, like myself. If you're in my shoes, then you would understand the daily struggles and thoughts one has to go through due to this addiction.

1. The First Sip of Coffee.

That first sip of coffee in the morning, or when you're having a mid-day crash, is an indescribable feeling. Once you have that first sip, you already feel alive. After that one sip, you are ready to take on anything.

2. Not Getting The First Cup In The Morning.

Nothing is better than the first cup of coffee and if you do not get the first cup, the whole day is ruined. If you're up before me, you better make coffee and let me take my coffee before you do...thanks:)

3. Your Bank Account Is Filled With $2 Charges.

Your parents question you why your debit card statement shows a $2 charge at Dunkin' every day. Who carries cash now a days and you need you hand over your debit card with no shame.

4. Please Do Not Talk To Me Until I Had My Coffee.

Why don't people understand that you will bite their head off if you haven't had coffee yet? You allow people to start talking to you only when your halfway done with your coffee. Without coffee in the morning, you cannot focus, let alone have a conversation and be nice.

5. Having Friends Who Don't Drink Coffee.

You are shocked when some of your best friends do not like coffee or just simply don't drink it. What is going on in their heads? You insist that they need to taste it. Also, when your at their house, they don't have any coffee to offer you and you need to change that.

6. When You Don't Have Coffee Until Noon.

Either you were out and could not make coffee or the place you stayed over didn't have coffee, so when noon comes around, you sadly don't have any coffee in your system. This is the worst feeling and all you can think about is how good coffee tastes and how sad life is without it.

7. Caramel Iced Coffee Isn't Really "Real" Coffee.

You have this belief that if someone does not like regular brewed coffee, they aren't really a coffee addict. It's basically filled with this fake flavoring to cover up the real taste of coffee.

8. You Know Your Coffee Order By Heart.

Medium hot coffee with milk and sugar please. Sometimes you say that order when you are ordering food by mistake.

9. Everyone Knows Your Favorite Christmas Gift Is Coffee With A Mug.

You can get this present every year, and still be super excited about it. You can always use more coffee, and is there ever a limit to the amount of mugs you own?

10. You Are Very Possessive Over Your Mug.

You get really mad if someone in your family or a friend uses your mug. "This is my mug and nobody else can drink out of it!"

11. There Is No Such Thing As "Too Late" For Coffee.

No matter how many people tell you that you need to slow down and not drink coffee so late, you won't listen. Coffee never really affects you anymore at night because your body is so immune to it. Midnight coffee run...I think yes.

12. Getting the Shakes.

Everyone has reached that limit when they drank way too much coffee. This results in getting the shakes and becoming very jittery. I honestly don't mind the feeling because during that moment, I needed all the caffeine I can get.

13. Big Mug Please.

Please only give me a huge coffee mug, I will not accept little tea cups. Even soup bowls are okay, because the more the coffee the happier I will be:)

14. Coffee Makes You Feel Powerful.

After you wake up and have that big mug of coffee, you are ready to take on just about anything.

15. You Dream of Coffee and Its Taste.

After a long and stressful day, all you want to do is sit back and enjoy that cup of coffee. I mean, I actually daydream about drinking coffee when I am falling asleep during the day.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Ariana Grande released her first single called "positions" since "boyfriend" with Social House and it is a BANGER. This song is absolutely incredible and I am SURE you will agree with me once you listen.

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
