    I have avoided coffee my entire life, but lately its become an integral part of my morning routine, and I am really starting to regret it.

    Are there any better alternatives? I've tried no-doz, 5-hour energy etc...

    seemed like they quit having an effect on me after about two weeks. like a tolerance build up. But i have been a heavy caffeine user for years...like a 2 liter of Diet mountain dew a day. I know its shitty but cant give it up. lol

    Why exactly do you need an alternative?

    It's not the coffee that you enjoy - it's the caffeine. Substitute anything with caffeine.
    Half a caffeine pill is probably the healthiest choice as far as acidity/calories in the alts goes.

    tea is probably 50% less caffiene but its diff kind so just as strong...

    also there is guarnna also a caffiene like substance, but harder to find, there is a soda you can find at brazilian stores... soooo good

    I enjoy the taste of coffee.

    In fact, I love it. It has a huge memory recall association for me for some reason. Few things are better than drinking coffee on cool fall days when summer finally fades.

    All the time. I keep instant decaf at home for late at night, and often when studying late I stop having caffeine around 8 or 9pm and switch to decaf.

    Decaf doesn't taste AS good (which is common) but still damn good.
