    I used to be but I started to get really bad gastritis because of it so I stopped.

    Now it's just fruit juice drinks

    I purposely limit myself to 1 or 2 cups a day so that I don't acquire too much of a tolerance to it, cuz I often don't get enough sleep and need it to work for me in the morning.

    Also, I'm naturally a night owl, so avoid coffee in the afternoon to maximize my chances of getting to sleep at a reasonable time at night. I think my natural body clock is 25 or 26 hours long; I always want to stay up later than the night before, sometimes even when I'm sleep deprived.

    No caffeine for me. 1 cup of green tea in the morning for health, and other than that, nopity nopity nope.

    I predict there will be no relationship between caffeine use and being a 9 on the enneagram.

    But there's more than just coffee out there. Everything from pop to energy drinks to chocolate have caffeine.

    I'm saying there is caffeine dependence, not just use, because the type 9s that I've known have been low-energy types as well as coffee drinkers. Or soda drinkers. If my mom didn't drink coffee all day, all she would do is sleep. And she's always been like that.

    For gastritis prevention, try Ranitidine (under various brand names), Prilosec, or Nexium. The last one is best, Prilosec is good but it has the most side-effects, I think. Fruit drinks can also cause gastritis because of the acid, but caffeine is far worse and alcohol is the worst gastric offender. Antacids have no effect on gastritis symptoms.

    Interesting ... my aunt is a 9 and she's kind of like your mom, but not me.

    I do eat chocolate, but that's more of a PMS-y need.

    I don't think I am an uber-energy kind of person either, but caffeine doesn't help me in that way. It generally makes me feel worse; caffeine makes me a jittery wired insomniac and gives me palpitations. I avoid it.

    True. I don't drink soda or energy drinks, but I do drink tea and eat dark chocolate in limited amounts.

    I thought most people were caffeine addicts? 9s have an affinity for sleep right? Why would they seek out something that makes them more awake? I guess they might feel the benefits more than some types.

    I'm a 7 and I'm a bit addicted - I drink 3 cups (espresso) a day. I'm a high energy person by nature but...I want more of it

    That said, I never drink coffee past 1 PM, otherwise I can't sleep well.
