I'm a caffeine addict and it gets worse all of the time.

I don't drink soda (I might have like.. maybe 5 sodas in a year) or coffee, so very rarely do I get anything with caffeine in it. But when I do, it has the opposite effect that it's supposed to. I completely crash like 30min. after drinking soda, it's so weird. Last time I had any was on New Year's Eve last year and I wanted to go to sleep shortly after LOL.

Caffeine in pill form though, like cold medicine or Excedrin, OMG I can't do it.. it makes me feel like my heart is going to explode.

Ummm, most people would be, lol. The usual serving size of espresso is 1 ounce and has almost the equivalent caffeine content as 1 cup of coffee.

Not so much.

I don't drink coffee so I don't know, maybe that would affect me. But pop? Naw. I have a Dr. Pepper every night before bed. And I sleep just fine, in fact I think I'd have trouble sleeping WITHOUT it.

Energy drinks don't do anything to me either. I rarely drink them, usually they are just reserved for Black Friday so that I can stay up for 24 hours, but I've never felt any more energized after having one. Unfortunately. lol.

VERY!

The only thing is if I have coffee in the afternoon, after 2 or so, it doesn't affect me until 2-3 AM. Meaning I go to bed and can sleep just fine, but then am wide awake around that time. From a sound sleep to ugh, can't sleep and am tired... Yesterday at 4 had maybe 2 oz of coffee that was leftover and yup, up for a few hours in the middle of the night.

I have coffee in the morning and that's it.

Same with energy drinks here

Our last trip to disney we made a pit stop and grabbed a "5 hour energy". Yeah right. First off, it was NASTY tasting and second I would rather have just had a cup of coffee. It didn't do a darn thing for me let alone 5 hours worth

I shouldn't have called it espresso, sorry. It's plain ol' coffee. The bean we use at home is called "espresso roast", but we make it just like your average joe: typical grind, same run-of-the-mill drip coffee maker.

Oh yeah not at all! I think I'm on a 24/7 caffeine high..I definitely notice myself dragging when I don't have any.

I used to think I wasn't affected by caffeine. Cause I can drink coffee/tea, etc in the evening and it doesn't keep me up. But when I DON'T drink it, I get super tired, and my head hurts terribly. I can't have it on this diet (I can have the coffee but not the milk and sugar) and its KILLING me.

I have anxiety issues and a sleep disorder, so I stay far away from caffeine. If I'm stupid and I drink a coke or something (extremely rare as I'm not fond of colas) it will make my heart race.
