Feeling stressed at work? Reach for that second cup of coffee.

A new survey by Pressat found the more stressful the job, the more coffee a person drinks.

Out of the 10,000 professionals who took part in the survey, 85% said they drink at least three cups of coffee a day! And nearly 70% said their work would suffer if they couldn’t have that daily cup.

So which jobs require the most coffee? It appears journalists. That group drank, on average, more than four cups of coffee a day. Followed closely by police officers and teachers.

Top 10 professions for coffee drinking:

1. Journalists and media staff

2. Police Officers

3. Teachers

4. Plumbers and trade workers

5. Nurses and medical staff

6. Company executives

7. Telesales

8. IT technical support

9. Retail staff

10. Drivers

Unfortunately, more than 60% of the survey takers were not aware of health risks associated with high levels of caffeine. Studies have found increased coffee intake can cause an increased risk of anxiety or even heart problems.
