During the early afternoon period, I find myself often getting a bit tired (i'm an early riser and late sleeper). If you follow my other threads, I'm sure you can guess why I sleep so little. Thus usually, as in also right now, I find myself finishing a complete cup of coffee and then falling asleep for a nice nap.

None of this should happen - I mean, who drinks coffee and then falls asleep? That sounds weird to me...

So sanity check. Does anyone else here do this?

I can fall asleep after drinking coffee if I jerk off afterwards. If I bang it out with a lady friend it's going to be 50/50 depending on how much she wants to talk afterwards. Panda liked to gab a lot so that was a loss, but Ninja goes right to sleep.

Caffeine takes about 30min to hit peak levels in your bloodstream. Apparently that's the ideal siesta time.

Waking up after that is supposed to be even better than a normal nap.

It's a thing. Google coffee naps.

My X could drink a cup of coffee and go to sleep no problem, even an hour later. My current girl can do the same thing, but she drinks 5+ cups a day.

My friend Robert can do a line of coke and go to sleep. That I find impressive.
give him some LSD it's pretty hard to sleep on that.

But yeah I got to the point where I fire for effect...i.e. I no longer just drink coffee but I also chase it down with 200mg of caffeine pill.

If you really into staying awake and are not suffering from high blood pressure or any heart conditions then you can do the poor man ephedra stacker...i.e. go to your pharmacy and get Bronkaid (it has ephedrine in it), combine that with 1 200mg pill and 160 mg of aspirin and you are back to the good old days of 90's ephedra stack.

Stop drinking decaf... :mmmhmm:

Like someone else said, if you drink alot of it, it has less effect on you. For me, if im just a little tired, it'll pick me up. If im dead tired, i could drink a gallon and im still going down.

I can drink a coffee or two and sleep right after. I also have a hard time sleeping at night.

Man, I can't sleep regardless of caffeine or not. My brain just doesn't shut off, constantly running over work/life scenarios in my head. I have become accustomed to the insomnia.

My mind is the same. I am constantly day dreaming. To fall asleep I have to force myself to watch mind numbing uninteresting non-engaging television series on my phone while laying in bed until the phone falls out of my hand and I wake up and stop the playback.

I wake at 4 AM, sleep around 8PM. I drink a mug of coffee in the morning and a mug before I do taekwondo (6PM). I still pass out within minutes and sleep like a baby. Been doing it pretty much since I started working. I think it's normal!!

Edit: I also drink coffee almost all day on the weekends and still nap haha. My caffeine tolerance is so high I don't think it really helps me stay awake. It's probably my most favorite thing to enjoy

Same with my wife. She's asleep before my head hits the pillow and is out all night. Pisses me off.

Lol... i can do that. Sleep on command. When we drove to Chicago back in Oct, we got up at 230 a.m., tossed the kids in the suv and left. I was driving first shift (13hrs). Wife slept and took over at about 1 pm.

So night before, i tell wife to get the kids down and i hit the pillow at 7:45. Out instantly. Normally im up to 11- 1130.

Shes all pissed later, as she got the kids down, came in at 830 and tossed all night til 230.

I wake up at 230, grab a large McCafe coffee from McDs before i hit the interstate and im good all day.

Shes like :confused: how the **** do you do that and can you teach me? Lol

I can go all day and not be tired. I am amazed how I can function on such little sleep. I can drive 4 hours, do a job for 2 hours and drive back home for 4 hours and not be tired. Just frustrating to be awake half the night.

Edit: @hammerdown here is my version of McCafe

If you like American McDonald's coffee you've gotta try Canadian McDonald's coffee. 10x better
I prefer Dunkin Donuts Premium from my Keurig, but McCafe isnt bad. One of the few things ill buy from McDs. If our local grocery store is out of DD brand, ill buy McCafe brand K cups.

@bslaws - wtf is even the point of decaf? :confused:
