Its New Years - and while I gave up drinking black tea for most of last year, the jolt it gave me crept back in via drinking coco powder, and now I'm back on the black stuff. Bad for the adrenals they say, and prevents iron being absorbed from food if you drink it at the same time. I'm looking for feedback from other people's experience of caffeine - starting from the assumption that we are not talking about consuming large amounts. Do people find its a permissable lift, or that they pay a price? Does my New Years resolution need to be giving it up again? Or swtching from tea to coffee?
