    Maybe Meteor will get an explanation in German language in a few days, I think there are some passages in which he just doesn't understand you.
    And: Caffeine is a drug, it's not straight edge to drink coffein... (Although there are many edgers I know which don't think so...)

    I think it's a question of your opinion. It's like vegitarism: if you want to, it can be part of straight edge to you, but it doesn't have to.
    Everyone has to decide for himself.

    not really the same, sxe is a stand in hardcore against drugs. caffeine is a drug, wether you drink coffee for the caffeine or for the taste does not change the fact that it contains a drug.

    and for the worst, when you get confronted and you findyourself trapped in a corner, you chose to not answer dusty's questions and throw it all as it depends on personal opinion.

    opinions only matter when they're informed and backed up by facts.

    Not the same at all, as straight edge is defined by not taking drugs and not by not eating animals...

    Talking

    I asked a few german straight-edgers the same question like in this thread, and they offended me, I was a wannabe, 'cause I ask them for their opinion 'bout caffein.
    They all drank coffee and tea and so on, and found it absurd to ask for any other points of view, 'cause everyone has to decide himself. Strangely enough they said at the same time, I'd be a murderer 'cause I'm not vegetarian XD (<laughing smilie).
    Okay, that's crazy I think.
    Sorry for my bad english!

    To support and even intensify your statement, because for me, if someone says "not REALLY" it means, that there might be some slight common things, which I don't think are there in this case...

    This is part I completely can't understand is that from a logical perspective, avoiding caffeine makes perfect sense and that meat consumption has nothing to do with it at all.

    I also asked some German edgers and not one of them called me a "wannabe", they all had the opinion, that caffeine might be a drug (or is a drug) and so they said, that coffee quite good might something you should not consume at all, but there were also some people, who said, that caffeine is something you should not care too much about because it needs a (very) high dose of it, to take any recognizable effect at all.
    But no one of them would dare to say, that caffeine isn't a drug...

    I used to be addicted to cola. When I didn't drink it for couple of days my muscles started to "hurt" and I'd have a headache.

    What? O.O
    Are you sure?
    Omg, that's hard.
    Never heard about something like that.

    But that could also happen with many other groceries, couldn't it?
