Do you only drink coffe in the mornings? If you drink coffee in the evenings, does it keep you awake?

I drink coffee all day and night, I don't know why but it doesn't keep me up, I can go to sleep, maybe I drink too much of it.

Your body is probably so used to it that it would keep you awake to not drink it.

I love coffee too. There isnt much that can compare with a hot cup of coffee.... and I like it at different times of the day! I have to buy the grinder, I dont have one now. My daughter grinds the beans and she makes awesome coffee! They told me here that you can get a grinder under ten dollars. What do you think?

Only in the mornings. I would stay up all night if I drank coffee at night. I have my morning ritual in which I sit down at the computer and drink three cups of coffee then I will get ready for work.

I have been known to drink coffee and tea at night. I should not because it keeps me awake but sometimes I just want it.

I have always enjoyed tea in the evenings. I also just want it...I dont like drinking alot of carbonation drinks because of the sugars. I dont like diet drinks because of their bad taste and most of them arent good for you!

I like sweet and low in my ice tea but not in coffee. I do like the splinda in coffee. I know how weird. I do not like Neutra sweet at all and as far as diet soda's I do not like them at all. Today I am having ice tea two bags of black tea and one bag of ginger tea.

I drink coffee throughout the day my friend and I am aware that I drink too much coffee, and I try to put a limit on it, I tend to have a hot chocolate before bed instead of coffee because I know that it will keep me awake! I do need my first early morning mug of hot black coffee with two sweeteners, I can't take milk in coffee, and I can have as many as 5 mugs a day, so I really need to cut down!

Yum sounds divine, I have you to thank because of your great discussion it has made me think twice about the caffeine intake I have each day and already you'll be pleased to hear that I have cut down 2 cups a day! So that's progress, I just must keep it up ;0)

I drink coffee all day. I drink at least one 12 cup pot a day. I always drink a cup/mug of creamy coffee every night before bed and it never interferes with my sleep. For some reason the caffeine does not seem to affect me at all.

I don't drink coffee. It disagrees with my stomach. But if I do drink something with caffeine, I usually don't do it after about 5 PM or I might not sleep well.

Oh Yes, even tea will keep me awake, if I have it too late in the evening. I often want some coffee or tea late in the evening, but I am better with hot chocolate....

I don't drink it at night. It's usually just in the morning and on the weekends. I don't think about it during the week but I love having some on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

I drink in the evening 'cause my work is in night shift so I badly needed coffee to stay awake; I don't drink black though, it's always with creamer. Black coffee is too strong for me. I only drink in moderation, just a cup 'cause too much caffeine is really bad for our cardiovascular system. I sometimes prefer iced tea if I'm not in the mood of drinking coffee.

I tried drinking my coffee black for awhile and then one day, I tried the creamer, and I have been using creamer, ever since....cannot go back to black coffee because now it seems way too strong! Appreciate your response!

Hi eaforeman6! I do drink coffee sometimes in the morning but in the evening, I regularly drink a cup of coffee but that does not really keep me awake. I get to fall asleep easily especially when I woke up very early and didn't take a nap in the afternoon. lol..I guess, the only thing that could keep me awake at nights are worries and stress. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

I love coffee and I guess I am addicted to it. I will drink coffee any time, any where! I can have a coffee sitting on my bed side table at night and after drinking it, it will not keep me awake. I probably drink too much but I have no other vices! Bring on lattes, cappuccino, mochas, yum!

I drink at least a cup after lunch, maybe as late as six in the evening. More than that or later and I do not sleep well.

I am careful about drinking it late, because, as everyone here knows, I am a gripy bear when I do not get enough sleep. I cannot type in here because if I am sleepy, I make too many typo's lol

My day starts with a cup of coffee with my breakfast. There are times when I have another cup in the afternoon if I feel my stamina is waning. My day ends with a cup of coffee following my evening meal. It doesn't keep me awake. There are times when I finish my evening cup and take a short nap!
