    I like caffeine for it's use as a treatment of migraines. It's somewhat interesting to have some cola and have it put me to sleep within a minute or two.

    I just will myself to stay awake if I need to. Never been big on using substances to enhance or alter my performance or improve my state of mind.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Most days, I need my morning coffee, but it's not a craving, or addiction.

    And, I cannot have more than 1 cup a day, at max.

    ENTP...my Ne gives me more than enough 'stimulants' for the brain.

    (I think there was a thread about trying to correlate preference of drugs with types....yeah, the funny threads we see...but I believe there was some discussion about the logic behind why some types are attracted to certain drugs due to their effects, e.g., stimulants versus depressants, etc.)

    I have noticed certain patterns...

    Probably depends on the specific drug in question to some extent rather than broader groupings. Caffeine, cocaine and nicotine are all stimulants, but due to mechanism of action I'd expect cocaine to have a more discriminating appeal to extroverts than nicotine...Cocaine boosts dopamine, while nicotine boosts dopamine and acetylcholine...

    Of course, if trends exist, they are only trends. I doubt anyone was ever more addicted to cocaine than John Belushi, an ISFP...

    FWIW, I typically consume 800-1000 mgs caffeine/day...

    I dont drink coffee(no effect, just bad taste). Maybe a handful of cups my entire life. I also dont drink cola(very rarely). I smoke(but dont really inhale), it makes me drowsy, and I like to sleep. I also drink alcohol now and then, for the mind liberating experience. Often into oblivion. I like it, even if it's for sure not healthy. There can be a long time in between.

    I don't drink coffee much any more. I used to, just for the effects, but they were minimal even in the beginning, and by the time I stopped drinking it, non-existent.

    But I do like stimulants of other sorts...(not cocaine or any kind of hard, illegal drug, though.)

    I don't remember caffeine ever having a notable effect on me. Maybe because I used to drink a lot of soda when I was younger. Now I rarely ever touch the stuff.

    I drink about three liters of diet coke every day. Since I usually don't get up before noon, I don't have a morning coffee (or at least I don't know if I do).

    To me it's more a beverage I have when I get together with other people, in the evening after school, or when I have a headache (btw coffee is great against headaches).
    I don't think it's type related though.

    Also, I think this guy is curiously absent from a thread like this.

    I love me some stimulants! You know, just a little somfin somfin to kick my brain into gear.

    I have a hard time imagining correlations between drug use and MBTI, but I wonder if there aren't some patterns associated with enneagram types, which relate more to a person's inner drives and compulsions.
