    I feel kind of drunk on caffeine too, but I take it in tablet form to get through 12-14 hour days in my research lab. It helps me stay on task and I can get way more done, but I don't feel myself!

    Don't ban it lol

    I get the same feeling these days when I have anything with caffeine. And I've been drinking coffee and coke since I was a baby (yuk) so theres really no explanation as to why all of I sudden I get jittery now.
    What I'm most concerned about, is the fact there is no minimum age for it. Kids are able to buy and drink it..and hardly anyone seems to care. Kids do not need caffeine.

    I've started to get the caffeine reaction when I have chocolate now too

    Fair points everyone... especially on the chocolate!

    It's strange... I have previously had 2 massive V cans and I don't even get a mild buzz... I was expecting similar with coffee.
