Question of the Day #505

This question is brought to you by the Hooligans at Fox Sports:

If you had to give up one forever, caffeine or alcohol, which would it be?

As for me, I don't drink coffee unless I'm about to fall asleep at the wheel. But I do love a Diet Coke over ice first thing in the morning.

But I'd much rather never have a Diet Coke again than never, ever, ever enjoy the perfect red zinfandel with pan roasted lamb chops or a delicious beer with a bacon cheeseburger.

I'd definitely kick the caffeine before the bubbly. You?



  1. Alcohol would go. When I was pregnant, I gave up alcohol, and I didn't really miss it. I couldn't give up tea, coffee, or chocolate permanently. Not to mention that my favorite headache medicine contains caffeine.

  2. I'd give up alcohol. I can't function without my coffee.

  3. I'd give up the caffeine. I like a Diet Coke or an iced tea in the morning to get started. But I can live without it. I enjoy the wind down with alcohol way too much. I think I have a harder time settling down than I do starting up.

  4. Tough one. Caffeine or alcohol? Caffeine or alcohol? I'd give up... ummmm... caffeine.

    I can feel the headache coming just thinking about it.

  5. Caffeine for sure. I could drink decaf tea, and could never give up being drunk and pairing wine with food.

    That was easy.

  6. I almost never drink alcohol anymore so I could easily live without it. I need my morning coffee.

  7. Funny you should ask, since I'm having to kick caffeine for good due to some health issues. I'm supposed to do away with alcohol, too, but I don't really drink enough of it for that to be a day-to-day issue. Coffee, though? Maybe if I hadn't gotten up to four cups a day, it wouldn't be such a problem, but...

    Anyway, my answer's Caffeine. Definitely!
