It is estimated that 54% of Americans over the age of 18 Drink coffee everyday. The question is:
Is drinking coffee good for you?
Coffee contains caffeine, a highly addictive compound. It is not uncommon for coffee drinkers to become exceedingly dependant on this beverage. Caffeine prevents the chemical adenosine from telling your brain when to relax and be calm. Eventually the brain will become accustomed to this unnatural surge of energy and require more caffeine to produces the same alert effect. While the FDA recognizes caffeine as “safe,” it is still a drug that alters the nervous system. 
Studies have shown that there may be some benefits to drinking coffee in the areas of preventing Alzheimer’s disease  , Parkinson’s Disease   and may also protect against type 2 diabetes . Organic coffee has been shown to help reduce cell damage, oxidation, and aging due to its high antioxidant content.
Unfortunately coffee is very acidic which causes stomach irritation in many people. It is not uncommon for coffee drinkers to take antacids or drink decaffeinated coffee in an effort to reduce this effect. There is also controversial evidence that links coffee to heart diseases. Some studies state, “consumption is associated with significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disease.”  
Coffee has been shown to disturb the proper function of blood vessels, both in turgidity and tone.  It affects the nervous system, heart rhythms, and has been linked to irregular heartbeat. It may also adversely affect blood pressure. Drinking coffee depletes water reserves in the body. Coffee drinking should be heavily avoided by people at risk, or who have Osteoporosis. Studies show a link between drinking coffee and urinary calcium excretion. Coffee, particularly in the evening or at night, can lead to sleep disturbance. Many people report that coffee increases heartburn. Some people experience withdrawal symptoms when don’t have coffee. This can lead to headaches, irritability, body aches, and other more extreme symptoms.

It's not easy to give up coffee after years of drinking coffee everyday. Here's a secret on how to do it:
If you normally use 4 scoops of ground coffee, then try 3 scoops of coffee with 1 scoop of grain coffee for the first week. The second week use 2 scoops of coffee with 2 scoops grain coffee. Continue this transition gradually until you have eliminated your consumption of regular coffee altogether.

Kick The Caffeine Habit Program
Rebuild Your Adrenals With Nutritional Supplements
Many people find their adrenals are exhausted after habitual caffeine intake. Other organs may need some help getting back to normal too.

Try them for a couple of months to get their full effect as dietary supplements need time to produce their full benefits, rather than just the short term effects you get from over-the-counter drugs.
