What about decaffinated beverages or other drinks? I am an experienced data entry operator and on my last job there were never any coffee breaks and I was tired alot.

It's tricky stuff caffeiene! It may give you a short term buzz but I think there's a longer term price to pay. I've virtually cut it out of my diet and feel better for it.

What I caught was that making coffee becomes an excuse to postpone doing dull tasks. Then it gets you over-stimulated which makes dull tasks look EVEN MORE DULL. Spot the vicious cycle there!
