There's a scene is Saving Private Ryan where the squad is getting pounded big time, and waiting for the next installment to start. They're smoking to try to calm their nerves. One of the characters, Upham, narrates that on his first day, when he was offered a cigarette, he said "no thank you, I don't smoke," which everyone finds hilariously absurd.

That is exactly the story of me and coffee at my new job. On my first day, I said "no thank you, I hardly ever drink coffee." Now I tell that story to colleagues and we laugh about it. I need at least three to get through the day.

I used to abhor coffee (espresso, caffe latte, cappuccino...whatever!) - until I entered college, whence I had a choice between milky water and milky, watery coffee with b'fast and I'd opted for the latter. Now I'm sick of that as well, and am back to base with "milky water".
I was hooked to tea, ever since I can remember- but this too is weaning, with the possible exceptions of Lemon Tea (hot/cold)and leaf tea (as opposed to dust tea).
I always was prone to high intake of fluids ( maybe, THAT explains my physical disposition)- and am now stuck with juices and cocoa-based concoctions. There really ain't nothing like a cup of cocoa to brighten one's day!:p
Hey! I thought you were allergic to milk, or something...?
