Glad to hear! As much as I love coffee I’ve never been a big volume drinker.
Good for you! Retirement has afforded me similar things, including lower blood pressure.
I had quit caffeine. But then I had a dream in which an abuela character told me that I should drink coffee because it's good for me. So I figured out precisely how much (or, rather, how little) caffeine I can tolerate, and I drink precisely that every morning.
In the past, people drank coffee prodigiously. The average Union soldier drank eight cups a day. And when there wasn't time to boil water, they crushed the beans with their rifle butts and chewed on the grinds. Each of my grandmothers drank six cups of black coffee over the course of the day.
Believe it or not, each to their own! But...
I was told by a psychic lady that coffee was bad for me. It took me a couple of years to realise that she was right. I cut down, went decaff, then gave it up.
NB: this was personal advice and not meant to say that coffee is bad for everybody.
I miss the flavour a lot. Wonderful stuff. Always enjoy the smell. But if I drink any, it does have a weird, uncomfortable effect on me.
