    i absolutely love lazing in coffee shops with friends drinking coffee and tea. I would also drink herbal and fruit teas, but it seems everything I read about all of these is bad. The odd real tea is ok but not a lot of it. Is there anything else people are drinking which is known to be safe? like decaff coffee? (or is this just full of other chemicals that are bad for you too?

    You can have up to three cups of coffee a day, or up to 8 cans of coke so don't worry. :)

    I have 1 cup of decaf coffee every morning and then drink decaf earl grey all day - and I try and drink water too, but that bores me senseless!!!

    I've switched to decaff tea at home and have one normal cup of tea at work. Had a hot chocolate at the weekend but that's the first I've had.

    If your a coffee addict then Id suggest switching to de-caff, Its got no caffine in it and I think it tastes just the same, with a spoonfull of sugar of course :)
    Also de-caff tea, I tryed that a few months ago and i really couldnt notice a difference between it and normal, Its great:) But i did have to leave the bag in longer!
    Or maybe you could try herbal tea? green tea is great as it flushes all them toxins away!
    Im completley off hot drinks at the moment except from hot choclate

    thanks for the input - you shouldn't drink green tea when you're pregnant or TTC though as it reduces your uptake of folic acid.
