  1. I don’t like coffee either, even the smell does nothing for me and people tend to find that odd x

      It’s not a cheap habit either but I guess it’s woven into our culture now. People’s reaction always amuses me on this. Like they were born drinking coffee 🙈

    I definitely wouldn’t have been able to make it as far as you. I think I was bang on the coffee and the energy drinks when Luke was younger!

    I love coffee but I agree you definitely don’t need it to function. Sadly for me I’m allergic to caffeine so I just drink it for the taste x

    I love coffee, but it doesn’t like me. Just one cup gives me the shakes. So, unfortunately, it’s decaf only for me.

    • The Growing Mum says:

      Does decaf taste the same? Wondering whether it’d be a more acceptable taste to my taste buds hehe

    I can definitely survive without coffee as I can’t stand it, wine on the other hand, definitely not

    • The Growing Mum says:

      You’re the one of the few in the no-coffee camp too. Wine I can take it or leave it really. I discovered that gin and lemonade is my thing or any cocktail where you can’t taste the alcohol hahah

  6. Oh, I absolutely NEED my coffee in the mornings, but that’s probably because it is a ritual more than anything else. I live in Sweden and people often raise their eyebrows to learn tea isn’t my favourite hot drink!

    I stopped drinking coffee for a few months – once it was out of my system I felt so much better for it – but as the weather is getting colder I find I’m reaching for it again.

    I would be totally at a loss without my morning cuppa(s). Can’t say I ever do the cake and coffee thing with other Mums though, I just get my fix at home by myself. 🙂

    • The Growing Mum says:

      Sounds sensible and cheaper to do at home really. I resent the cost of drinks in these establishments but sometimes I don’t fancy water

  9. I don’t think I would! But then again, I only have 1 or 2 a day so I am not addicted. It’s not because I am a mother. I just need a boost in the mornings!

    • The Growing Mum says:

      Have you ever gone a day without? My other half only has 1 or 2 at work then has this massive craving at the weekend. Not sure whether it’s addiction or just tiredness for him hahha

    I really love the taste and smell of coffee and have to limit myself to two cups a day or I would never get any sleep!

  11. PKaurK says:

    I converted to coffee from tea a few months ago, now I can’t survive without my morning coffee!

  12. I luuuurve coffee. I have to have decaf though as I work nights and the caffeine plays hell with my sleep pattern.

  13. I also hate the taste of coffee! I wondered if there was another mom out there who didn’t like it! Glad there are at least two of us in the “I hate coffee” club!

  14. I am also not a coffee drinker, but I am a snob about my tea and especially chai tea! I also sometimes get my caffeine from (gasp) coke, which is even worse for me than coffee would be!

  15. Julie says:

    I love the smell also, but when I drink it I get stomach aches. I usually drink black tea in a household of coffee drinkers 🙂
    You can get through mothering without coffee;)
