You guys don't know about the dangers of Chaa. It landed me in rehab for 2 months, I was at the point where I'd break down and cry if I wasn't given chaa 5 times. Don't even get me started on what would happen if there was too little sugar in it. I was even banned from being given chaa at all local Gurdwaray. With Kirpa, I'm now 4 months chaa free.

Hanji it effects people in different ways. Good to hear you are doing better. Depends on how much one drinks in order for the side effects to take place.

Some people are more sensitive to it than others, so if there are any symptoms then one should take a look at their tea/coffee consumption to see if it's causing them.

That sound's rough man,I hope you're ok now

I think it's a matter of how it affects someone. There are certain substances which universally affect everyone. But with caffeine i've noticed affects certain people in different ways. Like it was mentioned before certain Mahapurkhs avoided it while others didn't. These beings all had their reasons for doing such.

Some people are strongly affected by it and can't function without it, that in itself is indeed an addiction. While others aren't.

On a personal note Caffeine has a rather negative effect on me. Consumption of it induces instant drowsiness in me so I have a tendency to avoid it. I don't eat much as it is lol. Caffeine is a drug, but in essence anything has the possibility to be a drug (food-wise). Avoid it if you think it's murdering your life.

Changing what you drink. Drinks containing caffeine (for example, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and cola) make urge incontinence worse. This is because caffeine is a natural diuretic. Diuretics are chemicals that make you need to pass urine. If you drink a lot of caffeine-containing fluids then consider switching to decaffeinated alternatives.

Some answers to tea questions can be found in already discussed topic:

Try not to drink chaa for a week and then you tell if it's a drug or not. The withdrawals of this chaa addiction are like withdrawals from drug addictions.

It's true bro, I personally know people who have been drinking chaa for years and have to have it multiple times a day or else they get VERY upset and grumpy and feel like they can't do anything. They HAVE to have chaa or else it's like the world is falling down for them.

Fateh

1. You will have withdrawl symptons if you tried to leave caffeine. It will take up to 28 days for these symptons to disappear.

Very true!

Chaa is addictive no doubt but not in the same category as Panj Patey. So interesting choice Nihangs are making there!

I do not believe tea is harmful although studies on its impact on the body are inconclusive. I drink one cup a day of Indian tea made in the traditional way (changitraan ghaarke), not boiled dishwater known affectionately known as 'Gora chaa'. Anyways, it keeps me going for 24 hours.

If it's any consolation Bhai Rama Singh Ji used to also drink tea after the simran programmes in Hounslow, so there!

There are many people on the opposite side too.

Many mahaan mahapursh used to drink tea and coffee. So, it's obvious it's not bad. Btw Taksal Singhs also drink chaa as far I know.

There are many Dhan Guru Piarey who don't drink tea/coffee as well.

This topic has been discussed many times:

    • It is said a picture paints a thousand words.  But that is not necessarily true. There is one word that we jaap that encapsulates everything in the universe and time. Scientists look for the single theory that connects everything, this word is the single fact that connects everything together.
    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway.
