Someone had mentioned to me that copd and coffee are not a good combo.

I do like my morning cup of java.  How is it for you guys?  Thanks.

    Afternoon terri69807

    I also love coffee I can't handle it in the mornings but driink it in  the afternoon I can't go a day without a cup off coffee unless it's not a very nice taste as some can have a funny taste to  them! I seam to be ok but i suppose if we drink to much of it it could interfer with our medicines though some people with copd might be ok with no problem, What coffee do you like? I like kenco when I can get afford it or red mountain otherwise I stick too the best in roast granules that has a nice flavour have you tried this one?I'm wandering though how much cups off coffee are we with copd allowed to drink this I would like to know I think if we knew how much is safe it would help so we don't go over the limit do you know I will try & find out & let you know will be back soon!....

      Hi karen78573:

      Thanks for your message.  Mayble I will try drinking it later on in the day

      and see how it goes.  It's 8:50 am here in Canada.  I live in a small town

      on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.  The coffee I am currently

      drinking is Tim Hortons 100% Arabica Medium Roast.

      You do realise that there's still some caffeine in decaf and that there's been controversy for years about whether or not the chemicals used to extract most of the caffeine are dangerous or not?

      Thanks!  I definitely don't have balls and I do get into trouble (including on here) for being too direct, so nice to get some appreciation, esp as I'm having a REALLY bad day.

      Thanks again, those 2 little lines have improved my mood no end!

      Now I am going to be direct and most likely be moderated and it won't post,

      anyway.  I am upset beyond words today, going to try and keep it brief and

      it's not anything to do with copd, although?  Who knows in this world of ours how things really work?  I am half Norwegian (Mom) and half Native (Dad).  Left in an orphanage, not sure exactly how old I was when that

      took place.  Adopted by a British lady and life goes on.  Today I learned

      that the Aboriginal people here in Canada were in the past in a genocide

      situation.  Meaning what?  Meaning that the majority of Native people in

      this country were snatched from their families, had their hair cut off,

      were no longer allowed to speak their Native tongue or even keep their

      names.  A lot of them never saw their parents or families again.  Thousands of them were killed.  Sounds like fiction doesn't it?  It's not.

      I am so upset and crying at the moment as I type this.  So unjust and

      beyond unfair.  The Native culture is a wonderful culture.  We respect

      everything living on this earth.  I try to, far from perfect.  But then who

      is perfect.  Not me.  Know that for a fact.

      fyi  the last residential school was 19 years ago.  We are not talking about

      history long ago, rather history a bit ago.  Sorry again, this is not anything

      to do with copd.  Cheers.

    evening terri69807

    I found out online that we can drink up to 8 to 12 cups off caffein free coffee but I doubt we could drink that many cups of decaff it's nothing like the original also the suggestion is that we limit our intake of coffee & drink more water easier said than done too much water is just as dangerous as not enough water,I guess its a case of drinking in moderation as the same in anything, well hope this might help us all if i find out anything else about coffee & copd I'll let you know....smile

    I loke coffee and buy expensive stuff cant enjoy the cheap ones. I dont mean blue mountain but Millicarnoor similar of I canr get it. first thing in the morning and 3 cips later Im ready for my day to start

    I drink about 1 to 2 pints of water and quite often a glass or 2 odf rose wine

    Had COPD for 15 years now and I dont think what you drink makes much difference to your condition. Just enjoy what you like as long as its not smoking

    unfortunately. Enjoy the rest of your life

      Thanks nutty65.  Luckily any puffs that I have in a 24 hour period most

      likely add up to not even one cigarette.  As I said am in the process of

      trying extremely hard to stop even that - ain't easy though, as most likely

      some of you know.
