Is caffeine the greatest of all wonder drugs? It's legal!

Nothing like a blast of caffeine to pick up a slow day. Coca-Cola, coffee, tea are the best sources, and coffee seems to be the best vehicle for this. I'm not sure why; other chemicals in coffee are also valuable to health. Is that why coffee enemas are given? Oops, didn't mean to gross everyone out! So why is caffeine good (or not good) for you?

Caffeine really does not effect me that much, over the course of a day, I have drank a few cups of coffee and felt nothing. I have been told I am addicted, but if I don't drink coffee, I don't feel any different, certainly no ill effects of withdrawal. I want to try some of the new Tab with the caffeine, that might wake me up some.

Oh yes I really enjoy my caffeine especially when I wake up and start my work on the computer it just makes me feel awake so I can think more clearly, I do not drink any Coca-cola and not much tea, although I have 2 cuppa's every morning of my coffee. It does always help me go to the loo on a regular basis.

caffien is other kind of addiction... it only boost your metabolism temporarily... and you feel great eventually but later the other tday you feel crave for it no matter either its hot drinks or cold drinks these are highly addictive. and i think these are only boosters nothing to dealt with our health simply.

It would be a nice idea to have a cup of caffeine or coffee when I feel sleepy. But it should not be too much, I won't feel having food, if I drink it. It will make me full all the time. But in fact it stops food going through the intestine to our body. If I drink more, I can't sleep during the night.
