I sometimes experience that, even though I had my coffee already I still feel sleepy. I have to consider that it maybe the kind of coffee I have. markets here sell the 3-in-1 coffee (coffee,sugar and creamer) which I think is not really helpful in keeping me up at night or dawn. Int his case, i just go to nearest Mcdonalds and get brewed coffee, stronger and pure coffee-- effective in keeping me up actually. It depends on the coffee your drinking.

I guess it's also the factor of tolerance. Once you drink too much coffee, or take anything of a particular chemical, for instance, you do develop a certain tolerance to that. So maybe that was a factor for me. Also, when the body is tired, I guess you'll have no other choice but to give it what it needs: rest. :) But yes, I believe brewed is much better! I drink 3 in 1 also; and since Starbucks is so expensive, I'd rather stick to 3 in 1. :) Thanks for responding!

Maybe your body has already gotten used to coffee in your system that it no longer has the desired effect on you. Another possibility is that you really need to rest more and your body is telling you just that. I believe that if our body is fully energized, we don't get sleepy even if we have nothing to do or is bored but we still feel sleepy , even if we are doing a lot of things,if we need to rest

True that. I agree that I needed to rest more at the time I posted this question. And you are right, once the body needs rest, or has gotten used to certain caffeine levels, it does top off and no longer accepts the stimulation from the caffeine. Thank you for sharing!

That means to say you are really tired and sleepy. Nowadays I dare not to drink coffee because I am afraid to be sleepless.

Caffine does not affect all people the same way. I can drink coffee right before going to bed and it does not affect me at all. But then again, maybe it is just the day. I call them my *Lazy* days. Jammies most of the day. LOL

Haha, now why will your daughter be "not too happy" about your sleeping in? Heheh. It's instant coffee, the strongest blend around. ;) I think it must be the sugar heheh. :) Thanks for replying!
