Normally I don't but lately in the evenings I find myself craving coffee so I have been indulging the craving. It doesn't seem to keep me awake as it does some people. Do you ever drink coffee at night?

i seldom drink coffee at night, as it will keep me awake for a long time. it's hard for me to sleep well that night. coffee seems very effective on me.

I have had people tell me that it affects them that way but I'm finding it strangely comforting.

maybe you have drunk so much coffee that your body is adapted to it. the same case occurs on me refer to tea. many people drink tea to keep awake, while it doesn't work on me. i like green tea so much, and can't live without it. what a strange thing!

I know how you feel! When I'm finished with coffee, I move straight to tea and that is what I drink through out the day.

Yes, maybe several times a week I do. I'm addicted to coffee and when I have it at night it helps me to go to sleep most times.

May be I'm becoming addicted. I can't function in the mornings without coffee. Now I find that I like it at night.

I find myself drinking coffee in the evenings quite often. It will not keep me awake, but it is just relaxing. Some people have told me this is so strange. My fiance' always laughs whenever he gets off work and smells coffee brewing at night. I'm glad to know I am not the only one.

I have had people tell me that it will keep me awake but it doesn't. I think just the smell of fresh brewed coffee is comforting. Maybe I'm weird, but atleast I'm in good company! Welcome to Mylot!

I drink coffee lots in the nigttime hours. I love the flavor, and with the different additions you can make, it is better than dessert! Yum!

I love having coffe after an evening meal. It's like saying, I'm done. I'm full and I'm going to relax now. I sometimes drop a piece of white chocolate into my cup. YUM!

I seldom drink coffee nowadays and when I do, it is usually in the mornings or when my craving takes me. But really, I am not bothered that much by whether it is morning or night when I drink coffee. If I want to taste coffee, having the sun set already is not gonna change my mind.:)

LOL! Me too. I don't see why people warn against drinking coffe at night. It doesn't keep me awake. If anything, in the evenings it relaxes me.

I sure do, in fact, I'm just about to have a coffee now. It's 1:30am. I think I sleep better with a coffee. It's more likely to put me to sleep than it is to give me a hit, or wake me up or keep me up. To me it's a comfort. I can drink it on the hottest day both hot or iced. I love my coffee.

I feel the same way. I don't know why it's a comforting thing. Perhaps the smell? I don't know. I just really like my coffee!

No, I hardly ever drink coffee even in the morning. The only kind of coffee I actually like is Starbucks Frapecinos, lol.

Sometimes I do. It doesn't affect me enough to keep me awake either. I drink almost an entire pot over the course of a morning and if there is any left, sometimes I get the taste for a cup in the evening. Not real often though, just once in awhile if its a bit chilly or I can't find much else.

I drink close to a pot in the mornings too. The evening coffee is a new thing for me but I'm pleasantly surprised with it. It's comforting for some reason. I don't know if it's the smell or the warmth but I like it!
