    Coffee can almost not affect me - what should I do?

    I drink coffee only for the caffeine to stay awake. Once one cap could affect me, but now I need 2 and could barley keep awake. I'm afraid that in the future it would be 3 or 4 or more. What should I do?

    Welcome to the Club of Caffeine Addiction. Really the only thing you can do is go without caffeinated coffee for about 2 weeks (and endure the splitting headaches, etc. associated with caffeine withdrawel), then after those 2 weeks start drinking again. You will find that 1 cup will do it for you for awhile, then it will have to be 2. etc. Repeat cycle.

    Caffeine addiction is a serious problem. Even though caffeine makes your brain work better and keeps you awake it will lead to serious problems in the future.
    Try to decrease coffee a bit by bit everyday. If you feel sleepy splash water on your self or anything that keeps you awake other than drinking coffee because too much caffeine is not good for you. If still nothing works and you get too addicted to coffee go to a re-hab center near you.

    Cheers!!

    Are you getting enough sleep when you're supposed to be sleeping? If you're not, then you may be so tired that no amount of caffeine will keep you awake.

    Yeah, look into things that help you sleep better, if that's your problem. Get enough sunlight, don't be too active before bedtime, get enough exercise, etc.

    It seems to me, you'd be better off w/o any caffeine at all, and rather doing as the others suggest; find your energy naturally from the foods you eat, and the sleep you get. Learn how to deal w/ stress in healthy ways, and live w/o drugs.

    Night shifts are brutal. I did that for a bit years ago. Nothing worked to keep me awake. I used to nod off during work (night shift security). Driving home was the worst.

    I did night shifts also, what worked for me was to take a nap right before work usually between a light dinner and work.
    It was better than coffee and melatonine pills.
    I'm off. enjoy your coffees.

    it's really better to give up drinking coffee for at least two weeks, after you can start again, but with little amount a day
