I know a lot of people that simply cannot make it through their day without a heavy dose of the brew we all know as coffee. I personally don't like coffee so I get my fix with Mountain Dew.

According to a new survey, some jobs require more of the brew than others.

According to the PR company Pressat, 85 percent of workers said they drink at least three cups of coffee a day.

Journalists ranked first, ahead of police officers and medical professionals. Workers in higher stress jobs drank the most while retail staff and professional drivers took the bottom half of the top 10.

Not a surprise, 70% of professionals said they believed their job performance would be affected if they cut coffee out of their day.

On a side note the survey says that men drink more coffee than women but only by 5%.

Here's the full list:

  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
