I drink coffee many time a day; you can say I'm an addict. Not for a specific reason, I just love the taste. My family keeps telling me to stop drinking it, but I can't.

Can anyone tell me the disadvantages of drinking coffee?

  • Then edit the question to ask about the disadvantages of Turkish coffee (compared to other methods?). But it doesn't strike me as much specific question about Turkish -- much better leave it a general question, and retag. Jan 10, 2016 at 12:11

The only disadvantage that I see from drinking coffee is that you don't have the time to drink tea!

At the age if 68, I average 6-8 cups of coffee daily, and have done so for the past 50 years or so. My current job, I got bored with retirement, now averages 35 - 40 hours per week involving continuously standing, bending, stretching, and walking an average of 10 miles a day pushing loads up to 300lbs at a time.

Oh, the last cup if coffee is right before bed.

If your family keeps nagging you, take away their soft drinks and cigarettes, then let them REALLY complain.
