I think that coffee, like everything else, must be taken in moderation. A cup or two in the morning does not prevent me from getting a good nights sleep, but if I drink it in the evening, for sure.

If you are a fairly active

If you are a fairly active during the day, some light exercise i.e. well before bedtime, you shouldn't have a problem.

Sleep ! I can function

Sleep ! I can function without coffee, but not without sleep! I routinely give up my beloved coffee when I start to have trouble sleeping. Last time, I quit drinking coffee for more than 2 years... now I limit myself to one cup of really good coffee a week. It works.

coffee doesn't affect my

coffee doesn't affect my sleep as it usually takes my brain about an hour to shut down and i've been that way all my life. i'm bipolar and ADHD which is probably why so i read or draw before turning out the light...and there's nothing like a good cup of coffee in the evening.

coffee really doesn't keep me from falling asleep...it takes my brain about an hour to shut down which is why i read or draw before turning out the light. i think it's because i'm bipolar and ADHD and it just takes my brain a while.

I am 67 years old and always amazed that 40 is used for the age when everything starts to go downhill. It just ain't true!!

As I get older, I need more

As I get older, I need more sleep to function well @ work. Some of my friends/co-workers my age seem to never sleep, and they complain about it. They sometimes wake up hours before they go to work, and get a lot of chores done, but then they lose steam about 2 or 3 pm. On week-ends they nap @ that time. They complain because they still wake up EARLY the next am. I'm not sure how that relates to this poll, but I seem to do fine all day long because I sleep 7-8 hrs a nite.

For me sleep is precious. I'm 62. Last night I finally fell asleep at 5 a.m. That's with about 10 ounces of coffee au lait before 22 noon.
