Default How sensitive are you to caffeine?

I don't drink it very often. Not for any kind of health reason; I simply don't usually go for drinks that are caffeinated. I'm a high-energy morning person, so I rarely even drink coffee.

But for that reason, caffeine hits me like a sledgehammer. I just finished a 12-oz mug of expresso, and I'm twitching and tweaking like mad, LOL. My usual ferrety tendencies are in overdrive. YAY! *spins in circles, stopping to look at sparkly things*

How sensitive are you to caffeine? I've had coworkers who could drink endless cups of coffee yet don't seem affected by it at all. Yeah....not me, LOL.

I can drink from the time I wake to the time I go to sleep. My head hits the pillow and I'm out!

Very much so. Like you, I don't drink caffeine very much at all..but when I do my usual quirky already kind of twitchy self goes into over-drive.

Normally, I pace when nervous and it's kind of obvious.
Some caffeine and I'm eroding a track in the floor lol

Soda and tea, I can drink mass quantities and not be affected. Coffee however, ... I am not a coffee drinker, just this past year I made myself start liking frappucinos and mochas. They can make me shaky if I am not careful but its also nice to get a bit of a jolt because sometimes I need it - not good I know.

Not overly affected. I love a cup of coffee in the morning especially with my favorite flavored creamers (they are my guilty pleasure) but I am just as able to get up and go in the morning without my coffee/caffeine. I love my coffee more because it's just a nice warm mug of something tasty in the morning where I can take a moment and sit and enjoy it but I don't NEED the caffeine to get up and go and it doesn't really affect me in any noticeable ways

Not very affected at all. I regularly drink tea before bed with no effect. I rarely drink soda (once or twice a week), and I'm fairly certain it's a mental thing that gives me any additional spunk.

I don't drink coffee.

It barely (if at all) affects me. I feel the same before a cup of coffee, pop, tea etc than I do after. I've never been able to relate to people who say they can't have caffeine before bedtime, only one cup/day etc. Even energy drinks - some have a small affect on me but definitely don't get me spun!

I have to have a cup of coffee in the morning, or I get a bad migraine though.

Not too much.
When I was younger, my best friend and I would down gallons of coffee, tea, Red Bulls, and anything else with caffeine in it to keep ourselves awake into the wee hours of the morning.
I'd still pass out the minute we started a movie. lol
