Coffee doesn't wake you up.

Did a search - no dice so I think I'm in the clear for posting this.

Coffee doesn't wake you up - that early morning cup just reverses the effect of overnight withdrawal - according to a study.

eer yeh should probably say I'm really anti people who say they need a coffee to wake up or just have coffee for 'breakfast'. :oP

oh yeh, should also say I'm not a fan of addictions.

    It makes me feel better, and that's all I need.

    I get that... but I still want it every morning or I can't get going! It's the only addiction I'm allowed to have. LOL!

    Coffee never wakes me up.:) I can drink one before I go to bed and sleep in 10 minutes.

    I think it wakes me up a little bit.

    There is a big controversy about coffee.

    I need it on week days....weekends...ehh not so much.

    Well, all I know is, that if I don't have my coffee....I am a very grumpy person whose day just doesn't go right from then on out. Of course I am so addicted to the caffeine, I drink almost 2 pots of coffee a day. LOL

    i am usually a 6-7 cup a day drinker, but
    i actually quit drinking coffee for 6 months , and i used to wake up much faster and stay awake during the day much better than i do drinking the coffee.
    unfortunatly i slipped back into the coffee routine.

    oh and caffiene withdrawals are nasty headaches ,not tiredness .. so you article isnt all that true about withdrawals

    I can't wake up until I reverse the effects of overnight withdrawal.

    It's not just the coffee, it's the morning ritual I enjoy. I get up way before the fam, have my coffee, and poke around on the internet. I love everything about it from the way it smells to the way it tastes. My days are much happier with coffee. Plus, it's sterile and I like the taste.

    Supposedly also cigarettes don't relieve stress; you only feel better when you have a cigarette because your body was stressing over not having one.

    Of course, while I don't smoke or drink coffee, I have my own addictions. (See below.) :P
