I sometimes drink coffee when I am in my aunt house, they say if you drink coffee you will be awake or will not feel sleepy but mine is different. I feel sleepy after drinking coffee. Maybe I will stay up for 5-10 minutes but then I will fall asleep.How about you?

During overtimes and schools exams, coffee is very much in demand. It can make anyone active and not feel sleepy. I just wonder why it has the opposite effects to others.

I think we have different effects when we drink coffee. I like to drink coffee when I want to.When my aunt drink coffee and I smell it, I would take my mug and prepare a coffee..hehehhe. I think people have been using coffee to keep them awake but as for me it makes me sleepy afterwards..

Well for me it is just a drink, i can drink coffee in the morning and goes to sleep. At work during late shifts at night, i often drinks it to keep me warm and to have something to drink.otherwise i would just drink water. What keeps me fresh is the smell and aroma of the coffee but not the drink. So angellyn how often do you drink coffee?

I drink coffee when I want to..when I feel the urge to drink to...I like the smell of the coffee. I think drinking sometimes is okey. As they say coffee has also the ingredients of anti-aging... How about you?Sorry I add you just now because a bit busy with paperworks.. Happy Mylotting

Nope. I don't feel anything after I drink coffe. That's why I don't really like coffee. I'd rather drink milk though.

I don't feel sleepy after drinking coffee. I'm quite sensitive to caffeine. I sometimes feel like my wrists feel too tight after drinking coffee - they said it has something to do with the caffeine and how my heart is taking it. However, I don't have any problem sleeping at night even though I drank coffee at night :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I heard people having the same effects of coffee like you. Instead of keeping them awake, they usually feel sleepy. It really contradicts the actual effect of coffee base on common situations considering that coffee has caffeine and it stimulates the heart to beat more providing more blood and oxygen to the brain which keeps us active and awake. But well, no person is the same right. Perhaps for you and for some other people the effect is entirely different.

My sleeping can not be affected by coffee. I don't feel sleepy when I drink coffee but it can not keep me awake either. I even tried drinking a very strong coffee to keep me awake to review my lesson in school before but still, it has no effect on me. I have a friend though who can had trouble sleeping whenever she drinks coffee at night. It's good for her because she has a ready solution in cases where she needs to be awake for a long time.

Hello! No i don't feel sleepy when I drink coffee, which is funny since it is a caffine! I don't barely drink any coffee, so that might be the reason why. I only drink it occasionally, when i get a real urge to try it, becuse after a while I always wonder what it tastes like hehe. I like tea and hot chocolate mopre though; who doesn't?! Hehe. Thank you, Happy Mylotting! :]

coffee and me are so not well-adapted with each other...i dislike coffee but not hated them..one of the reasons is whenever i drank them,i tend to be awake all night long and hardly fall into sleep..so,i prefer milk and hot choc more than coffee..not only they make me feel better but they also give benefits to your body...unlike coffee..caffeine is bad~~for your health..trust me..i'm a pharmacy-student..so,i know..lol

It used to perk me up. Now it only keeps me awake. I have to have it. If I don't I feel drowsy and a bit cranky. It doesn't give me that perky wide awake feeling anymore though =(
