Caffine's effect on you

    I was just wondering about the different effects caffine has on various guys. For me, it does not seem to have much effect. I could have 10 cups of coffee before bedtime, and the only thing that would keep me awake is the fact I would have to piss out 10 cups of liquid. I know that products like pre-workout drinks, and fat burner suppliments have caffine as a major component to them, so I feel that they too have very little effect on me. Is there anyone else out there with caffine tolerences, or am I just a non-jittery freak? icon_lol.gif

    That's the problem. I don't want to drink coffee late in the afternoon(3 or 4pm). I drink decaf around this time. I am morning coffee.

    I limit my caffeine to no more than 2 caffeinated things a week. When I drink caffeine, I'm like a Labrador Retriever on speed. So much energy! I have to drink a cup of coffee slowly, over about 2 hours, otherwise I'll be like a rocket and then crash and burn into the ocean, sometimes some irritability will follow. Green tea is my favorite. I feel focused and energized. If I ever have a big project to do at work, then I'll "use" green tea. My students laugh at me when I teach after drinking caffeine becauseI talk really fast and crack a lot of jokes.

    It apparently fucks up Spider-Man because his webs are all over the place when he's on caffeine.

    Spider-Man when NOT on caffeine:

    As you can clearly see, caffeine makes Spider-Man very confused and spastic when making his webs.

    I'm guessing its primarily due to the fact that caffeine is, in fact, a drug.
    Have you gained this tolerance from coffee alone or have you had similar results to tea as well?
    I would suggest upping the intensity. Personally, a cup of coffee is great, but I usually add one to two shots of espresso increasing the net intake of caffeine from approximately 100mg to around 240.
    When coffee gets pricey or unavailable I turn to 170mg caffeine tablets that I take on the regular.
    Why the increased proponent of stimulant in my diet? Simple, I have ADD, if you knew me, you'd know I have the attention span of a coke induced goldfish unless you catch me between pots of coffee. I made the switch because unlike adderall and methamphetamine salts, caffeine cannot induce a myocardial infarction spontaneously.

    Like most drugs, long term effects are not studied that readily because it costs money to do research and the profit margin would be negligible. Heaven forbid we quest our curiosity and advancement of science...fawking NASA.

    Caffeine doesn't have much of an effect on me because I'm used to it. If I stop drinking caffeine for a while and then start again suddenly, it will have a big effect, but only once or twice. I adapt to it too easily.

    wake up and mental consolidation fluid

    I like strong coffee and have it in the morning---about 24 ounces with half & half, no sugar. Helps get my head awake, but also helps to clear my foggy lungs. I am making a rare exception to the AM only thing today because I did not wake up intil 3:30 PM. Here beginneth the fucked system.

    Caffeine has almost no effect on me anymore. I had about a year where I was sleeping a few nights a week and drinking almost 5-10 cups a day, so now I have to drink about 4 cups just to get a little energy.

    Caffeine actually makes me sleepy. I metabolize it quickly so yes I am more alert for about fifteen minutes and then I have a major crash. Just like a lot of people crash after some time and need more coffee to keep them awake, it happens to me way quicker.

    it is said that smokers-with-coffee-in-AM get a one-two punch of stimulants and need to hit the bathroom shortly thereafter. More healthy than a laxative?

    I find caffeine in the form of several cups of tea in the morning highly stimulatory and near essential to get me going(I`m naturally a night owl and slow first thing).

    The reverse is that I cannot have any tea or coffee in the evening(six hours or more before I go to bed) or I will be awake all night. I drink herbal teas then.

    I also find it helps with workouts and runs, improving my performance.

    Excessive consumption results in anxiety, agitation, my mind in overdrive, frequent trips to the lavatory, and even the shakes!
