Just as I suspected.

June 2, 2010

I am addicted to coffee but I am probably immune to coffee’s effects.

A new study found that regular coffee drinkers don’t get any extra benefit from that morning cup of coffee.  The caffeine simply alleviates caffeine withdrawal symptoms resulting from not having caffeine for 8+ hours.

Damn.  I shouldn’t be surprised.  I know that I can drink a Coke and go straight to bed so caffeine obviously doesn’t affect me like it would affect someone who only drinks it rarely.

Does this mean that my afternoon coffee is just a nice, hot, yummy placebo?
