    It was terrible, just terrible. I had skipped lunch, drank HALF a mochaccino and I was out of it, for the rest of the day and night.

    At first, I felt like the king of the world. Creative, sharp, fast, insanely happy and giddy and just, on top of everything!

    I normally talk pretty much anyways, and am pretty loudly when I get excited. The coffee version of me, though, not pretty. Everything times 10 and I had very little control over it. Totally uninhibited.

    Then came the crash. I lost complete connection to my physical being, I had no muscular control over my extremities. I felt like a floating head. Sweating, shaking, had the stare going, paranoid, heart palpation, nausea and eventually fainted when I tried to fight it and stand up.

    Went to the ER, as I had no idea what was happening. Hehe, doctors were like, yeah... go home.

    To this day, I'm wondering if the coffee guy put speed in my coffee...

    I think that´s because you are not a regular coffee drinker.

    I got over caffeine crashes about ten years ago.

    Yeah well who cares. There's a zillion studies that claim the opposite. I WANT TO BELIEVE

    Oh yeah, depersonalization. I never got that with coffee, but I did with redbull (twice out of 2 times I drank that darn thing). Extremely unpleasant.

    I'm addicted.

    The study is interesting. Apparently coffee is just a medicine for caffeine withdrawal. But what if you drink a cup when you are not in a period of withdrawal (after you have already risen back to "normal" levels of alertness)? Does it make you more alert and attentive at that point?

    I've noticed that when I drink coffee in the morning (my usual time, and the time at which withdrawal is kicking in), it only cures my headache and wakes me up to a feeling of alertness that I have when I've accomplished 8+ hours of sleep. However, when I drink coffee in the middle of the day, when I'm not going through withdrawal, I've noticed that it makes me more mentally active, alert, attentive, focused, and quick on my feet.

    It's really hard for me to believe that coffee doesn't at least affect me in a positive way in certain contexts.

    Keep the faith, man, keep the faith, if it makes you feel good.

    I do, but never upon waking. I don't need energy to take a shower, get dressed etc. I drink it right when I get to work.

    And if coffee doesn't make one feel alert, but instead reverses withdrawal, how do you explain how batshit HYPER people get when they drink it for the first time? And how they get to the point of addiction?

    I need it. 3 Red Bulls a day.

    I drink it--I try to keep it to two cups a day.

    Bad day? Three cups.

    I couldn't stand the taste or smell of it while I had a little person on board, though. It was the first drink after the little one was evicted.
