    I make it extra sweet with lots of milk at work, and I drink it fast because having the time to sit down, sip and write on a chart is akin to calling it a "quiet" night and all sorts of havoc will happen so I don't get back to it until it's cold and nasty. Lately I have only been pouring up a half cup just because I hate to waste it.

    coffee is wonderful for my mind and soul when 0300 rolls around....just enough to keep me sharp and fueled for my shift "homestretch"....all in all I drink about six cups per day....

    Was feeding a baby last night while she was getting an IV caffeine bolus. First time I ever wanted to steal a patient's medication.

    Oh to be able to account for the gallons of Coffee I drink a day.
    My addiction is so bad that I stir my coffee with a pen if I forget the stirrer at the local coffee shop. I will walk 20 blocks to reach a Joe's or Hot & Crusty on a 15 minute break. No work or day ever begins if I have not had two cups of coffee..
    Top that with my addiction of espresso beans, caffeine pills, tea, etc...I know I am at right for CHF. LOL

    First off, I really don't drink very much coffee...HOWEVER!!

    The past year and a half of nursing school as "drove me to drink" so to speak. I drink it every day before my clinicals and sometimes before my early classes...

    IT IS VITAL! lol
