When I dont drink caffeine my brain is going off in all kinds of directions. I dwell on any mistakes I make and I forget what im saying. Its a pretty bad experience when I havent drinked any caffeine.

When I drink some caffeine my mind is focused on the present. I dont worry about anything in the past I may have regretted doing. It feels like it has a calming down effect on my nerves, and I feel like a different person.

Anyone feel simular when being off and on caffeine?

I'm the same way. Coffee actually makes me tired when I drink it at night.

Dunno, does the same for me. That's why I drink a Mountain Dew sometimes.

Caffeine treats me differently when ingested in different forms. I feel good and alert when I drink coffee, but I get jittery and sick feeling when I take caffeine pills.

Sounds like anxiety. You should see a doctor.
