My girlfriend got angry at me when I pointed out drinking coffee is same as taking drugs.

Coffee has a lot of caffeine which has
1) No nutritive value
2) Acts as stimulant (of course a mild one)
3) People repeat it, over time the amount of coffee people take increases to produce the same effect.

Just because everyone drinks it doesn't make it something good.

@groff @redstarfish Caffeine is one of the four legal recreational drugs:
Alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, and sugar.


@groff @redstarfish Side note: if one takes a total lack of nutritive value seriously, then alcohol is not a drug either, which doesn't make any sense.

Plus, fructose is treated almost exactly like alcohol by the body's filtration systems.
