Kickin' it 

Having decided that it's impossible for me to maintain a state of controlled caffeine use, I'm attempting to give up the substance, at least for this quarter. We'll see how it goes. (This quarter and last, I had to get up at 6:30 am in order to get ready for a 8 am class. I was never able to use the stuff in a manner that would keep me awake during the day and avoid disturbing my rest at night.)

Comments:

Obvious solution. Use caffeine to keep yourself awake during the day, then take some Ambien to sleep at night. There's no problem that more drugs can't solve.
 


Ambien sells for $2-3 a pop. I probably could do better with a bottle of whiskey.

Plus, the patent on the drug is held by Sanofi-Avnetis. And we all know how I feel about the French.
 


1. For me, excess coffie leads to dehydration, which makes me feel tired. Drinking more than two cups a day is excessive for me.

2. I don't drink any coffie within four hours of my bedtime as I want to ensure that the caffeine is not in my bloodstream for sleeping.

3. One builds up a tolerance to caffeine. I find I have similar concentration depending on if I have a constant cup of coffie in the morning and if I don't. It is addicting though, so if I don't, then on the first day I will have a headache in the late afternoon.
