    Caffeine is a drug, and you can become "addicted" to it just like with any other drug. Symptoms would be noticeable when you DIDN'T drink coffee -- headaches, lethargy, etc. But it's not dangerous to drink coffee and, in fact, there are many, many health benefits associated with coffee. So, as long as you aren't drinking, say, more than four cups a day, I think you're golden.

    Smoking is bad for you no matter what you drink along with it. But it is not making coffee "worse for you." Same with beer. These three things are independent of each other. Drinking moderate amounts of alcohol is also good for you -- 1-2 servings a day has been shown to have the greatest benefit. More than that and you are likely doing more damage than good.

    Caffeine is a stimulant.Thus has an effect on your brain.You shouldn't drink it much if you want a healthy mind.Can be really dangerous if you already have some kind of a mental disorder in your genes.Can be a trigger.

    Alcohol is a depressant.Though while consuming , there is a wrong idea that it is a stimulant.It can have a stimulating effect during consuming it but soon it will give you a low mood.Especially if you drink more than a couple of beers/whatever,and especially if you consume it too fast.One drink should be consumed slowly for an hour.Or you should let yourself consume only one portion of drink per an hour let's say.And the healthiest is drinking occasionally.It means drinking not more than once or twice a week and not drinking big portions that makes you drunk.You really have to ''learn'' how to consume alcohol properly if you're insisting on drinking it.

    Smoke nicotine or ganja?...?

    Doing them all together is quite a wrong idea and very bad for the chemical balance of your brain.If you play with it much enough,then you may end up with a mental disorder such as depression or bipolar(also these things are considered as triggers if you already have some mental disorder codes in your genes which would perhaps never come out if you hadn't played with your brain chemicals)

    These are vices that either way can be good or bad depending on how much you do it. If you drink one beer, it's fine. If you consume more than that on one sitting, you have a problem. Drinking beer is ok as long as you don't continuously drink it daily. It's something that eventually will give you a "beer belly". So unless you exercise, it will show up in a few years.

    As for smoking, you know about the cancer claim. If you don't have to smoke, don't. There's statistics showing smoking is bad for you. Members of my family have died from lung cancer & it really isn't something that I would recommend to continue. Try to slowly break the habit. It's a crutch that you need to break.

    Coffee is good for you, but that also should not be taken too much. When you stop drinking coffee, you first develop headaches. Some people actually feel their hand tremble and shake.

    All these things are something you have to learn to control to enjoy. One or two drinks, puffs is fine but try not to overdo it. It will show up in your future, and you don't want to regret what you did when you were younger. Now is the time to try to stop the vices.

    Hmmm, Coffee itself is not a drug, but the caffeine and tannic acids are. They can be very harmful. Caffeine is used in many headache remedies, but it causes rebound headaches. Cigarettes kill millions yearly around the world, nuff said there. Alcohol kills almost as many people as cigarettes, because it makes people stupid, they get in cars, use guns, or just die of alcohol poisoning. And you don't need any of these artificial means used to self medicate to deal with life. In fact once you get started, you get addicted, now you have two problems. Nobody who smokes or drinks escapes injuring their body. They may not die at an early age, but there are severe consequences. I work in the field of respiratory care and deal with numerous people from all walks of life who indulge in these practices, not a pretty sight.

    Smoking and Drinking an alcaholic drink at the same time can cause a multiple effect which is not too good. So that wouldnt really be a good idea.
