Crazy About Coffee? Do You Know How Much Caffeine You are Drinking Each Day?

Do you have any idea how much caffeine you are drinking each day?

For years, I drank cup after cup of coffee to stay energized and alert during endless

meetings and long hours at the office.

In college, I downed cup after cup to stay awake long enough to study for tests and

to complete reports.

I must admit, I craved that caffeine “jolt’!

I was never a soda drinker but my husband consumed can after of can of soda

each day.

After years  of suffering from the hyperactive “highs” I experienced from drinking

too much coffee during the day–as well as the torture of too many sleepless nights–

I decided to decrease my coffee consumption.

Still addicted in a sense to that jolt of energy that caffeine provides, for the last few years

I have been drinking green tea and Yerba Mate for their reported health benefits,  but they

are still significant sources of caffeine.

Most of us haven’t a clue how much caffeine we are ingesting each day.
